Lemon and Macadamia Slice

This recipe was shared with me at yoga teacher training this year by one of the graduates, the very lovely Laura McKenzie. She made it for us on our graduation day and after one bite I knew I had to have the recipe, it is sooooo good and super easy to make. The original recipe comes from Wholefoods Simply, Enjoy xx
