Banana Almond Slice


Made these Banana almond slice with some leftovers that I salvaged from my fridge .... near expiry Digestive biscuits and slivered almonds.  I adopted the recipe from  The Australian Women's weekly, Biscuits and Slices but had to modify the recipe to suit my 9" x 13" pan.











These are good for snack and  are at their best on the day they are made.  The crunchy almond slivers do blend in very well with the sweet bananas.

  3. I too love to leave stuff in the fridge till expiring. Then I would be too panicky to make decent stuff. Haha.

    I normally hate bananas, but this banana almond slice will make the banana more palatable for me.

    Excellent post!

    Leftovers tend to be a bit soft, so just pop them in the oven toaster to heat up.

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!
