Chocolate Almond Coconut Slice

Chocolate Almond Coconut Slice

Chocolatey, moist – is it a brownie or a slice?

The proof is in the tasting with this slice.  So easy to make. And quick! The almond meal rounds out the flavours so well, the coconut keeps it moist.  This is a favourite that doesn’t last long in my house and is a special request for lunch boxes and afternoon tea.  I think when I developed this recipe I wanted to use all the ingredients that make baking so satisfying.  And it is a very satisfying treat.  You only need one slice to curb those cravings.  Perfect with a cup of tea for some me time!
