As people that live for dessert, we often don’t let ourselves splurge on it because of the feeling it gives our tummies afterwards. Gluten, sugar, and more make us feel lethargic, bloated and defeated. Fear not, because our resident “healthy dessert” guru Jacqueline Alwill decided enough was enough and created what we’d dub a gift to even the most dedicated sweet tooth. Delight yourself in a Rhubarb Kakadu Plum Slice that’s to die for and … gluten-free! Tip:
Most of the products you’ll use here, you’ll have extra of! Buy just enough fruit for a serving this time around, and next week you can recreate this dish with the other ingredients like eggs, coconut milk, and coconut flour! We’ll probably get enough groceries for two weeks, to be honest.
