- 15 min
- 27 min
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp milk
- ½ cup (60g) sliced or flaked almonds
- Brown, Raw or demerara sugar, to sprinkle
Method - Slice
Preheat oven to 160C (fan forced). Grease a 16 x 26cm slice tin with butter. Set aside.
Combine flour, almond meal, baking powder, salt in a medium bowl, whisking to combine. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter until lightened in colour. Add sugar and until light and fluffy. Add egg, Almond Extract and Vanilla Extract and mix until just incorporated.
With the mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture, mixing until combined.
Turn dough out into prepared tin and press into the base of the tin. Place a piece of baking paper over the dough and using your hands or a flat bottomed cup, smooth out the slice to make
as even as possible. Once flat, remove the layer of baking paper.
Method - Topping
Place egg and milk in a small bowl, whisking to combine. Brush over slice and top with almonds and sugar. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are golden.
Almond meal gives these bars a delicious chewy texture. However, if you do not have any almond meal on hand, simply replace it with ½ (75g) cup of gluten free flour.
*Non-Gluten free version – replace almond meal and gluten free flour with 2 cups (300g) plain flour.
