MY JAM & COCONUT SLICE

NO BAKE QUICK, EASY & DELICIOUS

I am going to go as far to say that this the easiest & most irresistible coconut & jam slice you could whip up at any time.

All you need is a food processor and a small square cake dish. My dish is 20.5 cm which is ideal for this size of the recipe.

 MY JAM & COCONUT SLICE

THE WALNUT BASE

The base is made with some simple ingredients that you likely have on hand. It is a combination of walnuts, oats melted chocolate and cocoa powder

For the base prepare all of your ingredients by measuring them out and tossing them into the food processor. This should stick nicely together and you should get a dough consistency.

Shape the bottom layer it into a cake dish that has already been lined with baking paper. It helps to use a spatula to shape it nicely.

Place in the fridge while preparing the coconut layer.

THE COCONUT LAYER

The coconut layer for this cake is also as easy as tossing all of the ingredients into the food processor and letting it do all of the work for you.

Add the desiccated coconut, coconut oil, honey & vanilla essence. Blend until its well combined, it wont develop into a dough and that’s okay! Working with desiccated coconut is a little different, but do not worry this will set in the fridge.

Spoon the coconut layer on top of the walnut layer. Use a spatula to press it down. Refrigerate the two layers for at least 45 minutes.

THE JAM & THE FRUIT LAYER

When the two layers have set, spread 3 heaped tablespoons of jam over on top and add fresh fruit.

Adding fresh fruit is such a great addition to this, especially during the summer season. If you live in a different part of the world use frozen berries or any fruit which is in season!

JAM & COCONUT SLICE

This recipe is made easy simply by the fact that it is a no-bake dessert. Desserts that are no-bake are perfect because they can be made for any occasion, holidays, birthdays or those times when time is short but the sweet cravings hit. If you love chocolate and coconut combinations this dessert could be for you!

Notes
When slicing the coconut & jam slice, it helps to wash your knife with hot water and then wipe it clean to ensure each slice is cut nicely and no left over jam smears up your slice
