Low-Carb Hot Cross Buns

Walking through the supermarket earlier smelt like I’d walked into a hot cross bun oven. It was inescapable. Out of interest I picked up a packet to look at the ingredients. I gave up after getting to number 20….I wasn’t surprised, of course. But, is…

Chocolate hazelnut spread

Did you know that a standard 440g jar of Nutella contains a staggering 249g of sugar. That works out as a 37 gram serving of sugar in every two tablespoons, or a whopping 57 cubes per jar. Worrying? The alternative options have the same amount of sugar and…
