This is adapted from a recipe over at Simone’s Thermomix Essentials, which was a recipe adapted from one at Planning With Kids. We have several people in our house who need recipes adapted for gluten free, low fructose diets and this is our version of those other two glutenful chocolate slices.

Easy Chocolate Slice (Gluten free, low fructose and in the thermomix)


125g butter

140g gluten free self raising flour (we used White Wings brand)

150g glucose powder*

30g wheat free oats** (we used Freedom Foods Wheat Free Quick Oats)

20g cocoa

1 egg


1. Preheat oven to 180˚C (160˚C fan forced) and line a slice tin with baking paper.

2. Melt butter in thermomix  3 mins at 60˚C, speed 2 or until butter is melted.

3. Add remaining ingredients and mix for 10 seconds on speed 3. Mixture will be clumpy.

4. Press into prepared baking tray and bake in oven 20 mins.

5. Allow slice to cool 10 mins in tin (if you try to turn it out while it is still hot, it will break up). Then slide it onto a cake rack to cool.

6. Cut into slices. I find gluten free baked treats don’t keep very long—I recommend freezing any leftover pieces once the slice has completely cooled. This also makes the pieces easier to handle (not so quick to crumble) and we quite like eating them frozen, too.

* Due to fructose issues, we don’t use sugar in any of our recipes. If you can tolerate sugar, use 140g sugar instead.

** Not everyone with gluten intolerance can tolerate wheat free oats. The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup desiccated coconut which we can’t use but you might prefer!

Also note that I have an older model thermomix which is why we mix ingredients on speed 3 rather than a higher speed—I don’t want the mix to be a purée.

If you don’t need to cook gluten free/fructose free (and/or you don’t have a thermomix), I recommend the original recipe over at Planning With Kids. Yum!

Thanks for the shout out! I feel lucky that we don’t have intolerances in our house, it must make cooking quite tricky.

We’re into the routine of it now. But it would be handier if EVERYONE in the household had the intolerances (or … didn’t!), so I could cook the same for everyone. Sometimes a lot of saucepans and tins out all at once …
