Who else loves the smell of freshly baked sweet treats?!
Baking has long been a family tradition, this blueberry slice recipe has been in our family for many years and I am so proud to be able to share it with you (in a low carb version of course!)
How to make Blueberry Slice.
To make this slice you’ll need to prepare the base ingredients first, spread it evenly over the base of an 8″ square cake tin and bake until there’s just a hint of golden brown starting to appear on top. Remove it from the oven and allow it to cool.
While the base is cooling prepare the filling by adding everything into a small saucepan and bring it to the boil. make sure to continue to stir it to mash up the berries and stop the sauce fro burning on the bottom. The sauce will start to thicken and that’s when it’s ready to be removed from the heat. Adjust the sweetness to taste, I’m not a huge sweets fan so I prefer mine to be a little less sweet but you do you and adjust it to suit your taste!
Let that delicious sauce cool, mix all of the topping ingredients together in a small bowl.
Now it’s time to assemble the slice by pouring and spreading the sauce evenly over the prepared base. Next, sprinkle the topping over the sauce. Pop your slice into the oven and let it cook for 15-20 minutes or until it’s looking gorgeous and golden. Once cooked, remove from oven and allow your slice to cool in the tin. This slice is best when it has chilled completely.
