Did not cook in stated time. Fell to bits when I tried to cut it.

I am a bit sensitive to sugar, but find the low GI stops me getting that sugar rush. Need to let the stuff in the saucepan really get bubbling for a long time, until the sugar's all dissolved, then it sets just fine. I use the back of a spoon to push it firmly into my bake pan.
Substitute apricots for craisins or raisins, almonds for chopped cashews or chopped macadamias, golden syrup for honey - all or a combination of substitutions have worked for me. - just depends what i have left in the cupboard.

Nice and crunchy but also found this fell apart-was lovely as a topping for stewed fruit though. Would like to know how to bind it together without adding more sweetener.

This slice is AMAZING!!!!! I've never had a problem with it falling apart - I cook it for 30 minutes and I also replace the golden syrup with honey to make it even more healthy! Making this every week!
