 Healthy treats workshops now available in Fremantle and Canberra

I've been making this slice for years now, it is a great recipe for winter, when all of the neighbourhood Lemon trees go bonkers! This was my biggest seller when I made Healthful Treats for commercial sale. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do xx Kristen 

Raw Lemon & Coconut Slice

Ingredients

235g Almonds

355g Pitted Dates

60g Lemon Zest (the peel from 1 lemon)

60g Lemon Juice (from the lemon above) only use local lemons, as imported lemons do not have enough flavour.

295g shredded dried coconut + more to put on top

Pinch of Himalayan salt
