One of my favourite things to bake on lazy weekends is a good slice – not only do they go perfectly with a cup of coffee fresh from being baked on a Sunday afternoon, but they’re super easy to store, making them perfect for packing in lunch boxes or toting in to work.

While I like to try new recipes as much as possible, there are some slice recipes I just keep coming back to time and time again – they’re our family favourites! So today I thought I’d share my five favourite slice recipes with you – who knows, they might just become a favourite at your house too.

Mixed berry crisp

One of my favourite things about winter is the evenings. After a long day at work, you get to head home to a warm house, snuggle up on the couch and relax with your favourite TV show. Sounds pretty good, right?

The only thing that could make this scene better is having a delicious, warm winter treat on hand. The trouble is, those kinds of desserts are generally a little time consuming to make and not all that good for you.

Luckily, this recipe for berry crisps bucks both those trends – yip, it’s easy to make and better for you thanks to Equal Spoonful. That means it’s packed with flavour and sweetness, without the calories. And you won’t even notice there’s no sugar, it’s that good.

Just look at these delicious zesty lemon biscuits. They’re soft, packed with lemony punch and are topped with just the right amount of creamy lemon icing – and are totally sugar-free. Yip – they are topped with icing but don’t have a single grain of refined sugar in sight. Pretty magic, right?
