I don’t know about you, but lolly cake was always the slice I gravitated towards as a kid and teen, but when I became more health conscious and realised that malt biscuits, condensed milk and Eskimo lollies were less than nourishing, I tried to make better choices. But the other day I decided I shouldn’t have to miss out and decided to healthify it.
Despite looking similar, this version is obviously a lot less sweet, but it a delicious combination of chewy fruit and crunchy nuts. I feel like this could be something I make again at Christmas too, as it looked rather festive as well!
Like the majority of my recipes, they are many easy substitutions such as a different nut butter, nut or dried fruit. It’s adaptable to your own tastes and I’ve tried it with chopped dates, dried blueberries and walnuts and it was fabulous!
This slice will keep in the fridge all week wrapped in baking paper or in a glass container, and is perfect cut up in lunch boxes or as a sweet something after dinner.
