  • Another yummy slice! And love all the seeds making it a great option for school lunch boxes given nut restrictions. But I think my slightly fussy four year old can smell that theyโ€™re a bit healthier and wasnโ€™t as big a fan as meโ€ฆ ๐Ÿซ

  • I tried this recipe and it tastes great. I did a few swaps and changed it to gluten free but unfortunateky it didnโ€™t hold as well as the original recipe โ€“ very crumbly. If doing GF version โ€“ might need to add a bit more liquid. Otherwise s great tasty recipe!
