Method

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 3cm-deep, 20cm x 30cm (base measurement) lamington pan with baking paper, allowing 2cm of paper to overhang at long ends.

  2. Step 2

    Combine the flour, pepitas, oats, quinoa flakes, sugar and coconut in a large heatproof bowl. Make a well in the centre.

  3. Step 3

    Place the butter and syrup in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 mins or until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Combine the bicarbonate of soda and boiling water in a jug. Pour into the bicarbonate of soda mixture and stir to combine. Pour into the well in the flour mixture and stir to combine.

  4. Step 4

    Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and use the back of a spoon to press the mixture evenly into pan. Bake for 25-30 mins or until golden. Cool in the pan. Cut into squares and drizzle with white chocolate. Refrigerate until chocolate is set and serve.
