Raw Lemon Slice

Raw Lemon Slice

Lemons are plentiful over winter, so make use of them by making this slice. Lemons are well known for being rich in vitamin C, a vitamin that supports the immune system and is essential for warding off winter bugs. The combination of oats and coconut in this slice makes it filling and satisfying, providing a perfect mid-morning snack.
