Who loves ginger slice? I am such a big fan and in the past I would love going to a coffee shopping and ordering a sweet ginger slice from the food cabinet to enjoy. As much as I loved them I was fully aware that most traditional ginger slices are filled with lots of refined sugars and ingredients. So for my love of ginger slice I decided I wanted to create a healthy version without all the butter, sugar, flour, icing sugar and golden syrup but one that was still sweet, creamy, crunchy and had that very authentic gingery flavour.
I have to say I am pretty excited about my new ginger slice recipe, its entirely plant base, raw, packed full of unrefined whole food ingredients and taste incredible. I have actually had friends comment its one of the best ginger slices they have tasted. I know you are going to love my healthy raw ginger slice and if you ever just crave a piece of ginger slice be sure to whip up my healthy raw ginger slice. With this one you could even have a second piece.
