Chocolate Almond Coconut Slice

Choc-Almond Coconut Slice

Chocolatey Morsels of Deliciousness!

We’ve been doing a lot of baking in my house this year.  I think everyone has.  When we were in lockdown a few months ago the only flour I could buy was in 20kg sacks.  So I am still making my way through that stash!  I love baking.  I don’t necessarily indulge in everything I bake.  Baking is satisfying because it lends itself to a smile.  I do write a lot about healthy eating and I subscribe to that completely.  But I believe in balance.  So if you are eating a healthy diet then a square of slice with a cup of tea is not going to hurt you.  Chocolate Almond Coconut Slice is my answer to satisfy my urge to bake and my family’s sweet tooth.

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!

Leave the Almonds Out if You wish!

One thing to note with this slice is that if you have an aversion to nuts, you can replace the almond meal with 1/2 cup of SR flour and the slice will still turn out well. I like to give my children a small piece of something I have baked to take to school. This is a better option than them taking something packaged and processed. If I am making it for the lunch box I would leave out the almond meal to adhere to school no nut policies.

Chocolate Almond Coconut Slice is a quick, easy baked treat to enjoy from time to time.- just for the smiles it brings!
