The (Kind Of) Healthy Bran Slice

How very Diminishing to see you all,

Howdy! This week it's another three way with Lucy, Sarah and myself, Lori of Random Ramblings of a SAHM,  and it's Lucy's blog providing the bandwidth. The theme is...

Your healthiest recipe *dum dum de dum*.


Those of you read my blog will know I'm not really the foodie type. Nor am I really the healthy type. So this one was a bit of challenge for me.

Therefore, after much deliberation, I'm (kind of) happy to bring you My Friend Kimmy Ann's Bran Slice. It's (kind of) healthy.

Healthy, in that two square contains a whole day's worth of bran- a big sweepy broom for the insides.

Unhealthy, in that heaven only knows how many calories are in a cup of brown sugar and a stick of butter.

Eat at your own risk.

I'll also confess, I couldn't be arsed actually making this slice to take a photo for this post. Lazy, you say? Oh my, yes!

So I thought I'd just slink around Google Images till I found one that looks remotely like the slice I'm talking about.

Nada. Zilch. Fail.

So please enjoy this picture of a cute cat instead.

My Friend Kimmy Ann's (kind of) Healthy Bran Slice

1 cup wholemeal self raising flour.

1 cup unprocessed bran.

113 gms Marg or Butter.

1 tablespoon golden syrup or honey.

2 teaspoons water.

Melt marg, syrup and water. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Press into a 7" x1" tray and bake in a moderate oven for 20 minutes. Cut into 24 slices when cool.

2 slices per day is equal to one heaped tablespoon of unprocessed bran- very, very good for you!!


  1. Cooking a cat......tehehehe!

  2. Normally I singe the fur off the cat before I cook it but I guess you can cook them with fur still on.

  3. Can you provide a recipe for that cat?

  4. G'day Tim. Welcome. I notice you have a Charlie too. (My Charlie has just told me "I am a bit cross a you Mum. You must not cook a cat on the cooker")

  5. Oh dear! Please tell Charlie that I was only joking, I love cats. (And my cat's middle name is Charlie too).

  6. Healthy? Prob'ly not. Tasty sounding? Most definitely!

  7. Hehe, fun-nee! Gotta get to that Blog, sounds like my kinda gal!
