Cheesecake and Oats Slices
Have you tried oats and cheesecake slices?
Cheesecake fan? Here's a recipe I picked up from the back of a packet of oats many years ago.
It was an easy recipe back then for a raw beginner cook, and they're still just as handy. I made these cheesecake and oat slices for my children, now the grandkids want them too. They enjoy baking these slices with me too.
Cheesecake slices travel well, pop one in a lunchbox.
