My kids are both back at school as of today and seeing as this Banana Rhubarb and Raspberry Slice is their current favourite snack, it’s only fitting that I share it here in the membership. I can’t wait to hear how you love this, I hope it will be added to your planner and become your families new favourite too. Feel free to experiment with other fruits for the topping or if you prefer, you could just make the banana cake part.
