Coconut Caramel Crunch Slice Gluten Free

Gluten Free Golden Caramel Slice

Guest blogger Jesse here sharing this delicious Gluten Free Coconut Caramel Crunch Slice! You see I was tasked with creating a sweet treat for The Naughty Dietitian’s work colleagues, so I thought a good old fashioned slice might do the trick. Golden syrup makes any dessert amazing, and combined with coconut, you can’t go wrong.

This slice combines a buttery coconut biscuit base with a sweet caramel filling, and is finished off magnificently with a sweet crunchy topping. Hope you enjoy!

P.S. If you prefer the more traditional Caramel Slice, how about trying my Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Slice (Gluten free).
