Strawberry Jam Coconut Slice

It only feels like the kids just went back to school for term 3 and now we are starting the school holidays again. I don't know about you but it gets more difficult to keep the kids entertained as the year goes on. On a positive note the weather is warming up so beach and park days are definitely on the agenda and are free bonus. Here is a old school favourite that I've adapted to a refined sugar free recipe and has a gluten free option. Another yummy kids treat to feed the kids and their friends these holidays.
