Recipe: Coconut rough slice

Today we have a guest recipe from Bianca Slade at Wholefood Simply. Bianca’s whole food recipes, and in particular her sweet treats and desserts, are well known for their simplicity and ease to prepare without sacrificing the flavour. She is sharing with us her coconut rough recipe, which is a great lunch box slice for kids as it doesn’t contain any tree nuts and is so easy to transport. I am sure that adults will enjoy it just as much. As you will see, it takes little to no time to make and only requires 4 ingredients. That’s what Wholefood Simply is all about!

Before we get stuck into treats, here is a little Q&A with Bianca:

Wholefood Simply is….My space to ramble and share the simple and fun foods that we love.

I cook the way I cook because…I enjoy it. I enjoy the creating, the eating, the sharing and the way my choices sit with my body and mind.

My must have ingredients in the kitchen are..I had difficulty narrowing this down to four but I will run with these – medjool dates, tahini, coconut and bananas.

My must have kitchen utensils and gadgets are… A high speed food processor or blender

One piece of advice I would give to mums with fussy eaters...In my experience the best thing was to accept it and let it pass. Keep ‘food’ relaxed and try not to worry about it. Set good examples and soon enough your little one will hopefully want to join in. I also started making a lot of simple green smoothies which my fussy child (and my not fussy child) enjoy. The smoothies put my mind at ease knowing that even if he does not want to eat he is still getting a variety of nutrients.

My kids favourite foods that I cook are…My daughters current favourite is the raspberry cheesecake and my son, who is still at home with me and is my number one taste tester loves the baked banana custard.

Most popular recipe on my site is…. our banana bread.

My favourite recipe is… I change my answer to this one every week, today I shall run with the caramel slice.

Typical dinner in Wholefood Simply household…we go through phases but everyone is loving the pistachio and apricot chicken at the moment.

I shop at…our local supermarket and the somewhat local organic food co-op.

    Can this recipe be done with a substitute for the dates (or without them altogether). We aren’t huge fans of dates in this household.

    Cheers,
    Amy

      Hi Amy, I would say that having some kind of dried fruit that’s a little sticky is what helps to bind the mixture but it doesn’t have to be dates. You could try using dried apricots, figs, mango or even cranberries or a combination of fruits. Even some sultanas could work.

    These look delicious! And, i love coconut. Do you use pre shredded coconut? Is this coconut milk or coconut manna/butter? Thank you.

      Hi Rae, by the looks of it and from how I’ve used shredded coconut, you will need desiccated coconut which is usually much finer than shredded. You could probably use either but the desiccated coconut makes it compact batter as it’s more like almond flour almost. I would also look for unsweetened version.
      If your food processor is really good, you can probably use shredded and it will get further ground and incorporated during the processing. Coconut cream is usually the thickened part at the top of the coconut cream or coconut milk can/jar (separated from the watery liquid) but you could experiment and use some coconut butter instead.
