1 Pre­heat oven to 170°C/150°C fan. Grease a 20cm x 30cm slice pan; line with bak­ing paper, ex­tend­ing paper 5cm over short sides of pan as han­dles. 2 Com­bine dry in­gre­di­ents in a bowl. 3 Place co­conut oil and rice malt syrup in a small saucepan; bring to the boil. Boil un­til oil is melted. Re­move from heat; stir in vanilla.

4 Add oil mix­ture to dry mix­ture; stir thor­oughly (the mix­ture will be quite stiff, use clean hands to com­bine well, if nec­es­sary). Spoon mix­ture into pan, press­ing down firmly with a spat­ula or damp hands to level. Sprin­kle with ex­tra co­conut and pepi­tas.

5 Bake for 25 min­utes or un­til golden. Turn off oven; leave slice in oven for a fur­ther 5 min­utes to dry out slightly. Re­move from oven; leave slice in pan for 15 min­utes.

6 Use the bak­ing paper to help lift the slice onto a wire rack. Cool com­pletely. Re­move paper, then cut into 16 pieces.
