Lemon lime coconut slice

This is a great little slice for afternoon tea or little snack. It's gluten free, has a real lemon and coconut flavour without being too sweet and is wonderful for livening up the tastebuds. Coconut flour is a wonderful addition as it is high in fibre meaning you stay fuller for longer, plus it's not short on healthy fats and protein.


Tea time anyone!

Base:

  • 2/3 cup of raw honey

  • 3 heaped Tablespoons coconut oil

  • Zest of 2 lemons

  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
