Mum used to make this for me when I was little, so I got her to send through the recipe (I think it was out of one of those old Woman’s Weekly cookbooks), so I could have a go at recreating it! I think I did a pretty good job!

Soooo, I’ve used aquafaba for this recipe…. and I know many of you may think… what the heck is that!? Well, it’s chickpea brine. Yes, that’s right. The brine after you drain a can of chickpeas. It’s actually amazing stuff and the best egg replacer that I’ve used! And, don’t worry, it doesn’t affect the taste at all.

With the jam, I’ve used raspberry in this one, but strawberry would also work quite well, or blueberry, or any jam really!

This Coconut Raspberry Slice is pretty quick and easy to make! The longest part about waiting for it to cool once it’s out of the oven. This is important, as otherwise the base will crumble easily. Even best is leaving in the fridge overnight.

This would make a wonderful after dinner or after school/work treat. Lovely with a cup of tea, or Golden Turmeric Milk!

    Hi Katie and Josh, sounds like a wonderful treat. Alas the instructions are missing.
    Comes up with a warning, invalid argument etc.
    Cheers Kevin.
