Strawberry slice

Cooking with strawberries is such a pleasure for me.  Firstly, they are my favourite fruit and secondly, cooking these gorgeous berries only intensifies the flavour.  This slice is full of wholesome goodness and I cant see why any one would feel at all guilty knocking back a few pieces.  I would happily eat this for breakfast with a dollop of thick vanilla yoghurt.   This recipe is very easy and simply a case of putting everything in your food processor.

The nuts add great texture to this slice and the chocolate adds a touch of indulgence.  In the version you see above I made it with half strawberries and half blackberries.  Whilst it was delicious, sticking to all strawberries is probably the better option.

 Making this gluten free is perfectly suitable, simply use your favourite gluten free flour.
