Easter Recipes



Not 1 but 3 tasty delights for you to enjoy this bank holiday :). Each bake is created to be gluten and refined sugar free until the easter chocolate is placed on top of 2 of them - so the topping is optional if you want to keep it clean. However I recommend adding them as it is Easter after all and a little bit of chocolate never hurt anyone ...

Easter Nests
