Sweet treat

I love healthy recipes and I love simple recipes, and this one ticks both boxes, so I am delighted to share it with you. It is so quick to make that it literally takes longer to weigh out the ingredients than it does to do the method! It is also gluten-free and contains no refined sugar, but there is certainly a lot of natural sugar from the dried fruit and honey.
