Chocolate Weetabix Slice

We have had a glut of apples and one of the ways I use up the cooked apple, once we get bored with having crumbles and turnovers, is to make some of this slice. It's fab for lunchboxes and after school snacks. I like to have some with a cuppa mid afternoon, just before the school run.  It's also very easy to make, even my girls have  no trouble whipping some up.  Enjoy!

1 cup apple purée

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup dessicated coconut

4 Weetabix, crushed

1 cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 Tblsp cocoa

1/4 cup chocolate chips
 
Preheat oven to 180°C.

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together gently until everything has just combined.  Do not over-mix it.  Press evenly into a swiss roll tin.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until firm.  Cool in the tin, then slice.
