I have Deb from an Aussie with Crohns to thank for this delicious recipe. Her recipe is specific carbohydrate diet friendly and grain free, so perfect for coeliacs and those who are intolerant to gluten.
A biscuit type base and a golden coconut topping, sandwiched together by a berry jam cut into squares. I chose to make a blueberry jam, again a recipe from @anaussiew
Firstly I made homemade blueberry jam using this recipe
I was really pleased with the jam, surprisingly sweet.
I combined the ground almonds and coconut flour
then added the beaten egg ,coconut oil and honey and mixed together
I tipped the mixture into a lined 8inch square tin
and pressed it down.
this went in the oven for 5 mins
While it was in the oven I made the topping
combining desiccated coconut honey and egg.
I spread a layer of the sugar free jam over the newly baked base
then added the coconut topping and baked for a further 25 mins
It was very tough leaving it to cool as it looked delicious.
Finally it was completely cooled and I moved it onto a cutting board and sliced into squares
The berry and coconut slices stayed together quite well, I was impressed!
A very pretty treat, perfect for afternoon tea.
With just a small amount of honey this treat is really quite low sugar. Perfect for a special occasion.
