This is a delicious tray bake I discovered. The base is made from a rich pastry and topped with coconut meringue. Perfect for afternoon tea. Based on the brands I used, eac slice is about 225 calories.

75g margarine
125g Xylitol sweetener (or caster sugar if you prefer)
150g wholemeal flour

2 large eggs
2 tbsp water

Pre-heat the oven to 170 ༠C/ 150 ༠C fan/325 ༠F/3 Gas.
Separate the eggs and whisk the egg whites with 50g sweetener/sugar and coconut.

Fold in the flour and spoon the mixture into a baking tray.
Pour the meringue on top and sprinkle the cashew nuts and cherries.
