A really VERY dense, fibrous, but fruity slice! If you like your desserts with a bit of chew-factor! Super duper with an almond mylk chai latte!

CHAI-CHIA BASE:
1 cup oats
1/2 cup crushed almonds
1/2 cup shredded coconut
3 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tbsp cardamon
1 tsbp ground ginger
1 tbsp peanut butter
10 medjool dates

COCONUT BERRY LAYER:
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tbsp coconut cream
2-3 cups shredded coconut

Simply pulse all the ‘base’ ingredients in a food processor ’til it resembles sticky, chunky granola. Press tightly into a lined tin (it should be sticky enough to hold shape when you squeeze it, if not, add a few more medjool dates or another tbsp of PB!) For the berry layer, put the berries into a small saucepan on med-low heat and stir till all the raspberries have disintegrated, add the syrup and coconut, stirring so that the mixture doesn’t burn. when the mixture has heated through (3-5 mins), stir in the coconut cream and heat for a further 3 minutes or so. The mixture should be purple and lumpy because of the shredded coconut! Pour into centre of the tin and spread to the edges. Freeze so that the slice takes shape. To serve, defrost and cut into squares! Enjoy 🙂
