Slice of Heaven

vegan slice

This virtually guilt free slice is fantastic to wow people with. You could list the things it doesn’t have in it- gluten free, refined sugar free, dairy free, added fat free or you could just let them eat it and see the happy faces and tummies.

Brown rice flour has become a staple of mine and can be found in most supermarkets. When substituting it for normal flour make sure you add something to help bind the mixture (like egg re-placer, tapioca or ground flaxseed) as it doesn’t contain the gluten that’s found in wheat flour.
