    Is this slice freezable?

    Hi,
    Loving your recipes. Just wondering what I could substitute in for coconut, I’m really not a fan of it.

    Thanks,
    Bri

      Hi Bri, you can’t really taste it very much, but if you want to leave it out, you can replace it with a little extra oats/plain flour until the texture is right. xx

  3. Nicole says:

    Mine turned out quite crumbly after cutting into slices. Is there something I’ve done wrong or is it always like that?

    1. Lucy says:

      Hi Nicole, it might have just been needing to be chilled for a while longer. Plus the type of knife you use to cut it makes a massive difference. For perfect cutting, I’d refrigerate overnight and then cut with a small sharp serrated knife. xx

    Hubby loved it!. Used ‘whole’ oats as had some in the pantry but wasn’t sure whether they were rolled or quick oats? May grind a little in the thermo first next time. So quick and easy!
    Thank you

      Hi Tiffany, yes whole oats are rolled oats. So glad you and your hubby liked it!! xx
