At Christmas time it can be all too easy to over-indulge in sweet treats. Boxes of chocolates and tins of biscuits are stables in most households at this time of year, and it’s hard to visit anyone without having some kind of sweet treat thrust upon you.

To counteract this, I like to make my own healthier sweet treats. I give them as gifts, take to other people’s houses and keep a constant stash in the fridge for when those inevitable sweet cravings kick in. What is it about cold weather, fairy lights and festive music that leaves you wanting to eat your body weight in chocolate?!

Now, these sweet treats should still be treats. Just because they’re gluten-free and refined sugar-free doesn’t mean you can eat as many as you like! They still contain sugar, just an unrefined, more natural form. Yes, technically they are better than many of the commercial options out there. But that doesn’t mean you can have a free-for-all on them without any consequences!
