I grew up eating a lot of slice. My mum would make it for our morning and afternoon tea and we would always have some in the fridge in case any unexpected guests dropped in. I can't say that all of them (or any of them) were very healthy but every time I eat slice I have fond memories of my childhood. So today I decided to attempt a healthier version of a Pistachio slice that my mum used to make. You could probably use any nuts in this recipe but I used what we had in the pantry which was Almonds and Pistachios...
1 cup Almonds
1 cup Pistachios
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons honey (or rice malt syrup)
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1 teaspoon salt
80g of dark chocolate (I used 70%)
Line a small baking tray with baking paper
Blend almonds and pistachios in a food processor until they form a crumb
Add maple syrup, honey, vanilla and salt and blend until combined.
Add mix to baking tray and flatten to fill (my baking tray was too big so I lined with gladwrap to fill half of the tray)
Place in freezer for about 30 minutes
Melt chocolate in microwave or bain-marie and pour on top of slice evenly
Place in fridge to set
