Golden Kiwifruit Breakfast Bars

Cook Time 1 hour plus cooling time

Servings 4-6


1½ cup wholemeal flour

1 cup rolled oats

¼ cup desiccated coconut 

¾ cup of brown sugar 

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp bicarbonate soda

Pinch of spice of your choice (I like cinnamon, ground cardamom or nutmeg)

150g butter, cold and cut into cubes

Gold Kiwifruit Filling

4 gold kiwifruits, peeled and chopped 

2 tbsp caster sugar 

Juice and zest 1 small lemon 

2 tbsp cornflour


To make the gold kiwifruit filling, place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix. Put to one side until ready to use. 

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line a slice dish with baking paper. 

Place the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, bi carb soda, a pinch of salt, spice and butter into a food processor and pulse until a crumb forms. 

Press half of the mixture into the slice dish and press down so it’s even. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, then remove. Spread the gold kiwifruit filling evenly over the biscuit base. Sprinkle over the remaining mixture so it completely covers the kiwi fruit. Return to the oven for a further 20-25 minutes or until golden. 

Cool completely before removing it from the dish. Slice into breakfast bars.
