Date Slice (Paleo) Thermomix

Just a word of warning – this recipe is NOT LCHF, it is PALEO. It contains 180 grams of dates which equates to 9g of net carbs per serve. I find the dates add enough sweetness, but if you’d like a little more, add about 100g of xylitol or   your preferred sweeterner. This is a tasty little treat, and when eaten in moderation and saved for special occasions, really tickles the tastebuds! 🙂
