Energy Slice Recipe

Hi again, Amanda from ‘Simple home cook’ back to share another recipe with you.

My opinion – slices are awesome! They are quicker than making cookies and much easier than cakes. This one only takes a few minutes to throw together and your kids will love it. You don’t even have to feel guilty eating it either as it nice and healthy.

Amanda started on this journey when her 3rd child was born, and feeding a family of 5 became even more of a challenge with three children under 3 1/2 years of age! She started working on a list of recipes that were simple and affordable that she could make ahead of time so she wasn’t stuck in the kitchen at 5pm when the household duties kicked up a notch. Amanda’s goal is to create simple meals that anyone can cook and enjoy without spending hours in the kitchen. Her recipes are perfect for that busy weeknight dinner, snacks to fill the lunch boxes or for students learning to cook. It’s simple home cooking at its best to free up your time to enjoy the fun things in life — your kids! Check out her cookbooks at and her Simple Home Cook Facebook page here:

    Hi – this slice looks great, but my kids don’t like peanut butter and can’t then take it to school (nut-free school). Can you recommend anything else that would be the same sort of consistency that isn’t a nut based butter?

    I agree with you Amanda, slices ARE awesome…yours particularly so!
    Thanks for sharing your recipes – now all I have to do is find a way to make them and then not eat the whole lot on the same day!
