This Coconut Energy Slice is jam-packed full of nutrition! The base is made from toasted nuts, seeds, oats and coconut and then it’s all glued together with a delicious blend of peanut butter, coconut oil and maple syrup 😋
It’s the perfect afternoon pick-me up or a yummy after dinner treat with a cup of tea. We love to store this slice in the freezer as it last for ages! It means there is always something yummy to enjoy when those sweet cravings hit.
