Paleo Princess Lemon ‘Brownie’ Slice
 
This is a totally decadent and delicious slice. Every one that I know that has tasted this slice has fallen in love with it. It is dense just like a brownie with a tangy lemon glaze.
Paleo Princess:
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup blanched almond meal
  • ¾ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup arrowroot (tapioca) flour
  • ½ teaspoon himalayan finely ground salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons tightly packed tablespoons of lemon zest
  • 4 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ⅔ cup honey
  • For the coconut topping:
  • 1½ cups shredded coconut
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • For the glaze:
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 Tablespoon (tightly packed) lemon zest
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees celcius
  2. Put all of the base ingredients into a bowl and mix (with an electric mixer) until well combined
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the coconut topping ingredients together until well combined then set aside
  4. Grease a baking (ie. brownie) tray and line with baking paper
  5. Pour base mixture into the baking tray
  6. Evenly spread the coconut topping over the top of the base mixture
  7. Use alfoil to cover the brownie tray to form a tent (leaving a gap on two sides for air to escape).
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, then remove the alfoil and place back into the oven for a further 5-10 minutes
  9. Take out of the oven and allow to cool.
  10. Whilst it is cooling, place the lemon glaze ingredients into a bowl and whisk (or use an immersion blender) until the mixture is creamy and extremely well combined.
  11. Once cool, evenly drizzle the lemon glaze over the lemon slice.
Notes
TIP – The Alfoil tent will prevent the shredded coconut topping from burning. You do want a little healthy looking golden colour to the top of the paleo slice, so remember to remove the alfoil in the last 5-10 minutes of oven cooking time.This is a totally decadent slice.
