Lemon and Coconut Slice 10


I’m so sorry for taking so long to write up this recipe- things have Β been super hectic with the online store and all (which is now OPEN, I am happy to say). But it’s finally here.

And I hope you enjoy it! You can also find the Chocolate Brownie recipe, also shown in the pic, here. I find that these two desserts work well together, pleasing both the chocolate lovers and the …non-chocolate lovers? (yes, they exist).

    I’m wondering if you can let me know what I can replace the almond flour with. I’m allergic to nuts (except peanuts) and love coconut flour. I would assume I could replace it with that but it may not be the right consistency. These look so good!!

      Hey! Thank you πŸ™‚ I think that Coconut Flour would work, although you may need to add a bit more liquid/eggs as it absorbs more moisture than almond flour. Maybe just play around with measurements. As a rule its 1/2c of Coconut Flour to 4 eggs and 1/2 c Liquid Sweetener. So perhaps just chuck in 2 more egg whites? xx

    Going to try these this week at a clothing party-I’ll come back and report!
    *total side note- my husband and I are interested in job searching somewhere within Austraila. Do you have a suggestion of best cities to look at with interest in safety, beauty, job availability or outdoor recreation?

      Oh awesome! I’d love to know how they turn out πŸ™‚
      Personally, I’m in love with Melbourne (we have Pana Chocolate, after all). The city and atmosphere is absolutely beautiful.
      Other than that, I’ve heard a lot of good things about Sydney too.
      If you’d like to discuss this is more detail, shoot me an email (sarahrav21@gmail.com) and I’ll see if I can help you out a little more. xx

    Hey there! I really wanted to try and make this recipe because i love coconut and lemon! I think it all turned out the way it was meant to, apart from the frosting. Mine is very runny and not what i was expecting.. If you could help me out that would be great! πŸ™‚ thank youx

      Hi!
      Did you use another type of protein for the frosting? Because I find that Casein works best…
      Otherwise, try adding any type of flour (coconut flour would be best) to thicken up the mixture OR place it in the fridge/freezer for a while before spreading.
      Thanks for trying the recipe and I’m glad it most of it turned out well, haha xxx
