This tasty treat is not only a healthier option for those watching what they eat, but it’s a great on-the-go snack when hunger strikes! With just a few simple, budget-friendly ingredients and a straightforward method, the delicious slice can be rustled up with ease.

While the addition of the icing sugar drizzle does lift the sweet flavour to another level, if you’re looking to cut down in that area, don’t be afraid to leave it out as the slice is definitely tasty enough on its own. Slice it up, pop it in a container and enjoy it whenever you’re craving something a bit sweeter!
