Happiness and health go hand in hand, but how can you be happy if you’re not eating what you truly desire? Our favourite thing to do at The Skinny Kitchen is to take a recipe that is usually unhealthy; full of refined sugar and high in carbohydrates and change the ingredients to make it completely guilt free without compromising on taste! Our sweet potato brownie is a great example of a totally healthy, natural and refined sugar free dessert. It has been our most popular treat at The Skinny Kitchen this summer and now you can make it yourself at home – you are welcome!
