“We love all your vegan and gluten free recipes. Our favourite is the organic granola. It’s a touch of sweet, deliciously crunchy, and bursting with natural goodness. We love the toasty flavours and the golden hue, plus it’s the most generous amount of goodies; full of berries, seeds and nuts. Handmade to perfection without the nasties, it’s a scrumptous treat!”
