This recipe has been passed onto me from my mum, who used to make it for us ‘teenagers’ and even as adults it was always a favourite. Ive tweaked it a little because I couldn’t resist really. For a gluten free recipe, it’s sweet enough that it doesn’t taste bland or dry. I make this one alot for my family because it really doesn’t last long, by which I mean they eat it all!!!!
It’s super easy, and even more delicious!
Let me know what you think.
Gluten Free Fruit and Nut Slice
1 Cup Gluten Free Flour
1 Cup Greek Yoghurt
1/2 Cup castor sugar
1 Tblsp Maple syrup
1 Cup of mixed dried fruit and nuts
1 Cup Desiccated Coconut
1/4 Cup dark choc chips for the top
1/4 Cup Sliced Almonds for the top
Pre Heat FF oven to 160Deg
Mix flour, sugar and coconut together in a large bowl
Add yoghurt, maple syrup and mix to a wet batter consistency.
If you feel the mix is a little dry add a Tbl Spoon of greek yoghurt.
Roughly chop the dried fruit and nuts and mix into the batter.
Place into a brownie pan lined with baking paper.
Spread evenly into the pan.
Finish by pushing dark choc chips into the top, and sprinkle over almonds.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until firm to touch and golden brown.
Once cooled place on a board and cut into slices, sprinkle with icing sugar and sere with fresh raspberries and a cup of your favourite brew!
This slice will keep in the pantry in a air tight container for atleast a week… if you are lucky enough that the kids don’t get to it first.
Alternatively you can change the cup of dried fruit etc to just plain dried fruit, or even fresh berries would be delicious. The great thing about this recipe is that there are no eggs, or milk. The Greek yoghurt is what gives the slice its rise and it makes such a lovely change to those heavy dense slices. The original recipe also called for a full cup of sugar but i just found its far to sweet, which is why i added maple syrup instead, you could change this to honey or even Rice Malt syrup, Even try this using coconut flour as well.
