My favourite lemon slice ever is this lemon weetbix slice! I love lemons! They are just so gorgeous and tangy they make a great addition to anything sweet. The tart flavour balance out the sugars so beautifully :)

This lemon weetbix slice also has a great crunch to it from the weetbix. However the addition of the pepita and sunflower seeds makes this even better! I also added a few chia seeds for some extra nutrition. This is optional but is great way to add some more omega 3s to your diet. See here for more info

This weetbix chocolate slice is a super quick slice that has a beautiful texture. I just love the crunch of the weetbix through it. It is so healthy you could almost have it for breakfast haha. Just joking!

The kids will love this and so will the adults. The chocolate flavour is beautiful and it's not too sweet. Enjoy!
