Quick and Easy Jam Slice

Quick and Easy Jam Slice

the base

  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 4 tablespoons almond butter
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, soft
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

the centre

  • 3 level tablespoons 100% fruit spread – I used raspberry

the top

  • 6 tablespoons cacao or cocoa
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  1. Line a square 20cm tin with baking paper overhanging the sides for easy removal.
  2. Place the base ingredients into your processor and blend at high speed until the mixture resembles a fine, sticky crumb. Press the mixture firmly into the base of your prepared tin and set aside.
  3. Spread the fruit spread evenly over your base and set aside while you make the chocolate topping.
  4. Mix together the ingredients for your chocolate topping and pour the topping over your slice, spreading it out to cover and enclose the middle layer. Place the slice in the fridge to set.
  5. Serve. Eat and enjoy!

*you can use rice malt syrup if you prefer.

notes –

  • I place the slice into the freezer for 20 minutes prior to slicing. Once sliced this can be stored and served straight from the fridge or freezer, it will not be stable at room temperature.
  • When making the chocolate topping ensure the coconut oil is not heated, you may even find it helpful to add the oil once tablespoon at a time.

Dear Bianca, I’m so sorry to read the sad news about your beloved Grandma. You must have felt very torn, not being able to go to her funeral, but I’m sure she’d rather you and your baby stayed safe, rather than undergoing a long journey. R.I.P, Bianca’s Grandma x What a sad time, your Angel Baby’s anniversary- but SO happy that your Poppy Seed is kicking away! take good care, I’m sending love across the oceans to you xxx

Thank YOU Wendy, it was a bit of a roller coaster week but things are settling down now. School has gone back and we are in the swing of things! It is freezing here and I am counting down to the 37 week mark, it seems like forever away for an impatient being such as myself. All is well with Poppy and the kids. I hope you and yours are well also. xx

It is with joy that we prepare good food for those we love. The simplicity of sharing food is a gift and shows that we care. Those who have influenced our kitchen memories help to make up the love for those we feed. Thank you for sharing such heart felt comments above about your Gran and your little angel. There is a sense of healing in preparing treats for those around us. I am off now to do just that with this sumptuous delight.

Why haven’t I made this sooner??? It’s delicious. The only problem is that I may eat it all. I should never make your recipes on an empty stomach!!!
