I’ve had many requests for this recipe - it’s very popular! A decadent morsal, that is usually well received at Saturday night dinners at my wellness retreats. I like to serve it with a little natural yogurt (or coconut yogurt) and raspberries.
Bursting with natural ingredients, this tasty treat is also gluten and dairy free and suitable for vegans. It was kindly passed on to me by one of my dairy and gluten free students. She sourced the recipe from ‘My New Roots’.
