This Sugar Free lunchbox slice recipe is totally easy, you need a handful of simple ingredients, a mixing bowl and a slice tray. I have included how to make the slice with delicious caramelized pineapple, but this is optional as any fruit, especially fruit that is looking a little too soft, will do.

The recipe uses almond meal as I prefer avoiding wheat but schools are mostly nut free zones so any flour can be used instead if you are making it for lunchboxes.

Our Sugar Free Slice freezes really well so it’s easy to grab some out to defrost in the lunchbox, I keep it in ziplock bags.

This Sugar Free lunchbox slice recipe is totally easy, you need a handful of simple ingredients, a mixing bowl, a slice tray and almost any fruit will do in the filling.

Rating 5 stars - based on 6 review(s)

Ingredients

  • For the slice
  • Organic Rolled Oats - 2 cups plus 2 Tablespoons for the topping
  • Almond Meal - 1 cup plus 1 Tablespoon for the topping (ANY other flour can be used here)
  • Spoonable blended Stevia powder - 2 Tablespoons (available from supermarkets, can be called Natvia or Truvia)
  • Rice Syrup - 2 Tablespoons or Rice Malt Syrup
  • Blackstrap Molasses - optional 1 teaspoon (this adds a brown sugar taste, The Spiral foods brand has only 10% natural sugar, I don't recommend many other brands)
  • Butter - 60 grams or 4 Tablespoons (coconut oil can be used if vegan or dairy free)
  • Water - 1/4 cup or less
  • Fruit for filling - See caramelized pineapple recipe below or try banana, peach or apple puree as discussed in the recipe for quantities
  • Frozen Berries - An optional 1/2 cup of Frozen Blueberries or any type works well on top of the fruit layer below the crumble layer
  • For the Caramelized Pineapple (a slice filling option)
  • Pineapple - 1/2 a pineapple with the skin and core removed
  • Spoonable blended Stevia powder - 1 Tablespoon (available from supermarkets, can be called Natvia or Truvia)
  • Blackstrap Molasses - optional 1 teaspoon (this adds a brown sugar taste, The Spiral foods brand has only 10% natural sugar, I don't recommend many other brands)

Instructions

  • If you are using my caramelized pineapple filling, prepare this first using the steps at the bottom of this recipe, if you wish (alternate fruit filling suggestions are listed below too)
  • To make the slice Preheat oven to 180C fan forced
  • Line a small slice tray with baking paper
  • Melt the butter and dissolve in the sweeteners (Rice Syrup, Stevia powder and molasses)
  • In a large mixing bowl stir the oats, almond meal (or any flour in place of nuts) and the butter mix together til well combined, add a little water (up to 1/4 cup) to help the slice base come together when pressed
  • Use about 2/3 of the mixture and pat it firmly into the slice pan to make the slice base
  • Add your fruit of choice to cover the base
  1. caramelized pineapple as per recipe on this page
  2. mashed banana, about 2-3
  3. soft peaches, about 4-5
  4. apple puree about 1 cup
  5. any fruit that requires using up before it gets any more limp in your fruit bowl
  • As an Optional you can sprinkle on some blueberries or passionfruit or any berry your have
  • Combine 2 Tbs of Oats and 1 Tbs of almond meal (or any flour) with your remaining slice mix
  • Sprinkle the oat mix on top of your fruit for a crumble effect
  • Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes
  • If the slice starts to brown faster you may wish to remove it, if you pull it out and it still looks soggy, put it in for a few more minutes until golden brown on top and firm on the base
  • Slice once cooled and store in the fridge or freezer
  • Enjoy xoxSha

To Make the Caramelized Pineapple

  • Caramelized pineapple is a very delicious filling for this slice
  • Simply finely chop or process 1/2 a peeled and cored pineapple and cook on high with the sweeteners until it has reduced a little, about 10 minutes is good
  • This can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge

    This was delicious! I added some coconut and used pear and banana purée in it, as well as the mixed frozen berries. I also just used honey instead of the rice syrup and panela instead of Natvia. Will definitely be making it again!

    This is the first sugar free recipe that my (non-sugar free) husband has said ‘that’s yummy’ too! lol. I did pie apply with blueberries and look forward to trying other variations. I also used a bit of desicated cocunut through the crumble for the top which was nice too. Thank you 🙂

    …that should have read ‘pie apple’ 😉
