Gluten Free Slice

  • 2 cups nuts, sunflower seeds, pepitas, or a combination
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour (e.g. millet flour, quinoa flour, buckwheat flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (aluminium free)
  • 1 cup coconut (free of preservative 220)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or organic butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 chopped apple
  • 1 cup natural dried fruit (free of preservative 220)
  • water

1. Grind nuts / seeds in a food processor or coffee grinder.

2. Place dried fruit in a saucepan with  1/2 cup water, honey and coconut oil/butter. Bring to boil then turn off heat.  Allow to stand 5 minutes.

3. In a bowl, mix the ground nuts, seeds, gluten-free flour and coconut.

4. Add chopped apple and the warm dried fruit mixture. Mix.

5. Now add a little more water – just enough to make the mixture hold together.

6. Spread out into an oven-proof rectangular dish. The mixture should be about 1/2 inch (12 mm) thick.

7. Bake for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees C.
