healthy rocky road bites

recipe  19th August 2016 by

What you’ve got here is a healthier chocolate cake on the bottom layer, packed full of linseeds which are a great source of fibre. Then there’s crunchy nuts coated in dark chocolate, topped off with dried fruit. It’s a great healthier alternative to an indulgent classic!

My mum makes a delicious rocky road cake. It’s so good, but sadly not very good for you. I can’t even begin to imagine how many calories it contains. But the combination of the crunchy rocky road and the soft cake is what inspired me with this recipe.
