This week Sonya has given us a really, really simple gluten free recipe to try out that's also free of the top 8 allergens. I love a simple recipe like this and school holidays are a perfect time to try it out :-)
All you need is a blender, a fridge and a few simple ingredients! I whipped it up myself in about 10 minutes with just a few minutes in between for the chocolate base to set. I just blitzed each layer in my Thermomix for 1 minute on speed 9. I used a loaf pan approx 21cm x 14cm.
If your family have a problem with coconut, the base of this slice is yummy too so just double that and forget the top coconut layer.
Don't have any cacao nibs? You can make without..... don't let that put you off but I must say these add just the right amount of crunch to the top and look so pretty! You can get cacao nibs here. They're also great in bliss balls so they won't get wasted! Try these yummy Mint Bliss Balls with the cacao nibs as well!

About Sonya Lee and Allergysave
Allergysave is a website developed to help people with allergies not to just survive but to THRIVE!
Living with allergies can feel overwhelming and many people feel helpless and out of control. Sonya knows what that feels like. She was an overwhelmed and desperate mum of a child who was covered in severe eczema and diagnosed with severe life threatening food allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, rice, corn, oats, eggs, dairy, soy, chicken, potatoes, peaches, peas, mangoes and lupin.
She began a blog "Parenting a Child with Multiple Food Allergies" as a way to cope with life. When the blog started to gain popularity, she realised many other mums were going through the same thing.
Determined to help, she published a series of 'Top 8 Free' allergy recipe eBooks, contributed to many published cookbooks, blogs and articles and founded Allergysave - a leading source of information, allergy friendly recipes, resources, education, support and encouragement to many families living with allergic conditions and dietary restrictions.
