Almond, walnut & banana breakfast slice

I've teamed up with Alisons Pantry to create some nutritious recipes in the lead up to National Nut Day in October.  This nourishing breakfast slice is free of refined sugar and gluten and will make mornings so more appealing. The combination of almonds and walnuts is not only tasty but boasts a multitude of heart health benefits. A perfect breakfast on the go or lunchbox filler.

I'm always on the lookout for ways to make my life simpler and having this in the freezer - because it freezes beautifully - has been wonderful. And though I've said it's a great breakfast on the go, lets all agree to sit down at least some of the time and enjoy it with a moment of quiet and a cup of tea instead of racing around. You deserve it!
