We are always looking for easy ways to reduce refined sugar in our eating without feeling deprived. When we create a recipe that is full of fibre, plant based protein and super food ingredients, we just have to share!

Say goodbye to refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, sweets cravings and roller-coaster sugar crashes & say hello to sensible eating, satisfying snacks and full flavour!

What we lost: white flour, refined sugar, chemical flavourings and preservatives.

What we gained: whole wheat, fibre, anti oxidants, plant based protein, omega 3 & 6 and amazingly satisfying treats!
