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.
