If the Corona pandemic has got you craving time outside in the fresh air, start planning that escape now. Personally I think watching over a camp fire is mesmerising. The best food for a camp fire? Marshmallows of course!





As we head into winter we all start craving warmer, more energy dense food to get us through the cooler months. These S’mores are a healthier version than the traditional store bought ingredients. So whilst you should never feel guilty about enjoying treats in moderation. It is important to acknowledge that these are a treat food.



I’ve used maple sugar instead of castor sugar to reduce the GI of the ingredients. What this means is your body’s blood sugar response is not as high comparatively.
