When I was little my mum used to make a wheat bix chocolate slice which I thought was so good. This recipe reminds me of that slice but I’ve swapped some of the ingredients and made this recipe as a low carb chocolate slice and drizzled it with 90% Lindt chocolate. Yum!!! This slice was so good warm out of the oven with a cup of coffee and only has 1.3g of Carb/slice. As I was only making for myself I made a small batch and which only filled about 2/3rds of my Whiltshire slice tray. You could make twice the batch which would fill up the full tray. 

Once cooled a little it slices well and I kept the left over slices in an air tight container over 4 days with no problems. If you were wanting a really yummy, quick winter dessert, one of these little beauties warmed in the microwave for 20 seconds and topped with some pouring cream would make a delicious dessert. Enjoy!!!!

Lamington Slice Ing RS CC

  1. Prepare a shallow baking pan with non stick paper to hang about 2 inches over the sides. This extra paper will help to lift the slice out of the tray after baking.  I used an 18x 27cm Whiltshire slice tray but only spread the mixture across 2/3rds of the pan. Preheat the oven to 160C and place the egg on the counter to come to room temperature. 
  2. Mix the Natvia, cocoa powder, desiccated coconut, coconut & almond flours and baking powder in a bowl. Stir well till evenly mixed. 
  3. Melt the butter till fully liquid and add to the dry ingredients. It’s very important that the butter is fully liquid as you will need this liquid to bring the slice together. Add the vanilla, egg and water and stir well till all combined. The coconut flour is going to aborbe as much water as it can take immediately so it may be a little dry. If you find that the mix is too stiff, add another tbsp of extra water and mix in. 
  4. Spread the slice mixture evenly across half the base of the pan using a spatula or if it sticks too much I use clean, wet hands to hand spread and flatten the mix. The water will help prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands. Bake for 35 minutes or until the base is dry and firm. Remove from the oven and cool.
  5. Very carefully melt some 90% Lindt in the microwave in a mug in short bursts of 10 seconds until it’s melted. Using a tea spoon drizzle the melted chocolate over the slice. Wait until the slice has cooled slightly before you slice. You can either eat while still warm or wait until it’s cooled. 

Yum!!!
