March 25, 2020

NZ is at day 1 of our nationwide lockdown in an effort to overcome COVID-19. I don't know about you but I plan to spend alot of time trying out some new recipes over the next 4 weeks! Here is one of my fave slice recipes. I should also add- this freezes really well! So while we are all hunkering down in our homes it could pay to keep some of it out of sight- out of mind! if not- then you have been warned! It is very moreish... 







  • 1 cup almonds soaked overnight rinsed and drained

  • 1 cup oats

  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)

  • 1 c desiccated coconut

  • 2 c dried apricots (soaked and drained)

  • 1/2 lemon juice, flesh & zest

  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • 1 c raw cashews soaked 1-2 hours

  • 4 tbsp honey

  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil melted

  • Juice of 1 lemon


  1. Blend base ingredients in your food processor until a sticky cookie dough type texture forms, then press mixture into a lined baking tray and put in the freezer.

  2. Blend topping ingredients until super creamy.

  3. Sprinkle with coconut, and put into freezer.
