A friend once said to me that desserts aren’t meant to be healthy, I disagree! If we can add more nutrition to a meal then lets which is why I have used a whole mixture of flours in the recipe as I feel it really does punch a whole load of flavour and fills you up with goodness instead of empty calories. Coconut sugar has been used in this recipe, have done this because it is known to retain large amount of nutrients such as Iron, Zinc, Calcium and Potassium, along with some antioxidants.

Also, try replacing sunflower oil with a light olive oil, its so much better for you x
