Almond, Cranberry & Tahini Slice

Almond, Cranberry & Tahini Slice

By: Lee Holmes

This scrumptious bake exceeds all expectations of a healthy slice. It’s full of interesting flavours such as almond, coconut and cranberries for a sour and sweet burst. I love to make a snack like this once every couple of weeks and freeze it so I have instant access to an interesting sweet treat when friends come over for a cuppa. Life’s too short not to bless yourself with sweetness!



Prep time

Cook time



  • 2 cups almonds, roughly chopped
