apricot meringue slice

On what was an extremely hot summers day in Brisbane, a silly thing to do is then turn the oven on….but alas I did!
It’s the things we do for our husbands. Β  Especially when they are painting the upstairs of the house on said hot day!!

So when he requested for a childhood favourite to be baked, I caved…..and sweated haha….but I’d rather be baking than painting πŸ˜‰

This came from the old plastic file-o-fax of Womens Weekly recipe collection that his mum gave him….and this one is so delicious! The wet apricot/meringue layer is perfect with the dry biscuit type base….perfect afternoon tea on a hot day ><

Tasty nonetheless! Β Original recipe card below for the full recipe.

healthy & easy homemade chocolate

I’ve been wanting to try this for a while but have always thought it would just be too complicated and also because….CHOCOLATE!

But it was quick (took me 18 mins for my first go!), basic and used minimal ingredients!  Not just that, but its filled with lots of good stuff for you too which we all keep hearing LOTS about!

coconut oil – eases digestion, boosts immunity, stops sugar cravings (umm YES please!)
raw cacao powder – high concentrate of magnesium & iron and packed with antioxidants
cashew butter – essential amino acids

You can find the original recipe via two lovely sisters from Canberra over at themerrymakersisters.com – it’s a recipe thats definitely worth a try if you’ve got the ingredients at home and one we will make every now and then as it does use a lot of coconut oil and cashew butter, but as a treat – YUM!
