Bianca just discovered your site and love it, told my friends to jump on board. Your stories are heartfelt and recipes delicious, killer combination. The one minute slice is wonderful but mine wouldn’t set, I placed in freezer and then worked. It’s not a travel friendly dish, is there anything similar that holds well at room temp? Thank you

Reply
Bianca Slade January 5, 2015 - 6:59 am

Hi Selina, thank you!! Yes this one is not stable at room temp. I would take travel with something like the baked brownie, peanut butter bars, jaffa bars, most of the balls, the muesli bars and the cakes. I hope this helps! I would love to hear how you go with anything else that you try. Thanks again for your feedback and support. Bianca

Maybe around 16 pieces? I make it in a loaf tin and it only stands a couple of centimetres high if that helps at all

Jenni January 8, 2015 - 9:30 pm

I made a half & half slice with the nut slice at the bottom & nut free recipe on the top, I also used my 8cm x 28cm slice tin instead of loaf tin, it was amazing! It was even better the next day(Day 3 of being in back of fridge). Thank you for this recipe!!

Thank YOU!! What a great idea! I am glad you enjoyed it. I agree that it gets better each day. I just added a roasted almond slice to the one minute slice collection, if you get a chance to try it out I would love to hear what you think. x

My partner usually does not like peanut butter, or nuts in general, but adores this. And the toddler would eat it for brekkie if I let him. Had to use raw almonds instead because out of cashews. Delish – I’m going to make a double batch next time and freeze half.

I am sorry Ange I think I have missed something, I can’t see where it is suggested you pack them for schools? Not only does the recipe contain nuts but it needs to be kept in the fridge. Sorry if there has been any confusion.

Hello, I love the look of this recipe. Could I subsitute honey for maple syrup? I made the cocunut biscuits this morning they were an amazing texture ( crunchy on outside and squishy inside) but I don’t love the taste of honey so could I substitute maple syrup in this recipe too?
Thanks , I love your website !

I’m sure you could although I would use a tad less and make sure it’s a good quality organic one. Not or maple syrup is made equal πŸ™‚

You can but maple is thinner than honey, do you lie rice malt syrup? Or maybe even coconut syrup?

Caitlin February 9, 2015 - 11:29 pm

Thanks Bianca, I did make using maple and the result was amazing. Next time, I’m storing in the freezer as I put one slice in as a test and it was the best!

Beck March 7, 2015 - 9:42 am

I made this the other day but with almond butter and RMS then added extra salt and another tablespoon of coconut oil (tasted it before i let it set). might have put some coconut on top of one end to see what that would add to it. Its really yum and a nice texture. I made them into bite size peices so i got closer to 24-28 bits. Ive only just found your website and im looking forward to trying a few more. I havent decided how i feel about the use of dates yet so i’ll google some more. seems like there is 3-5 teaspoons of sugar per date. So i guess you just have to watch the portion sizes too…..?

Bianca, I loved what you said about how responsive you are to your young son. I was like that throughout the time my son was growing up. He is now 31yrs old & an intelligent, happy, mature man. We share healthy food information & I just made him his 2nd gluten-free birthday cake. Our relationship is still close & loving. He brings the greatest joy, & such a wonderful texture, to my life. Keep up your good mothering & you will be rewarded ten times over!
By the way, your recipe also sounds delightful!
