Thermomix Recipe :: Almond and Ginger Slice

Do you know how you start little rituals and then just out of sheer habit you find yourself needing to do them almost every day? Baking for school lunchboxes and after school snacks is a little like that for me! Knowing that my kids have something special in their lunchboxes, made from real ingredients, not packed full of additives and colours gives me a little ‘mum high’. Keeping the menu interesting is always a challenge I set myself and so I am often browsing through my recipe books for ideas that I can use, adapt to our tastes and whip up quickly in the Thermomix. 

This recipe is an adaption from one I found in a vintage Women’s Weekly cookbook and it is super quick to make. Win and win!  The almonds add a great crunchy element, while the ginger adds a wonderful sweet and spicy flavour!
