I wish I could say I made this recipe but I can’t, Mum did. Yes, I know it was Mother’s Day and I obviously should have been the one doing the baking (or in this case combining, given it’s a raw recipe) slight fail on my behalf, must do better next year. I did make juice (beetroot and spinach – not the best combination, it BADLY needed a carrot!) and we both made Buckwheat and Coconut Flour Pancakes (the first batch looked like they were made by a three year old, luckily we switched pans and the second batch were better). I’ll share the pancake recipe next week but for today please enjoy Mum’s…
