Since I was little I was always brought up eating healthily, I remember when friends came over and looked in my pantry, they would always look so shocked and it was always the same question: “Where are your snacks?”. We never had crisps or biscuits in the house instead we had nuts and fruit. We never had fizzy drinks or flavoured squash instead we had water or my mum would make fresh orange juice. I must say, I am grateful to have been brought up this way? but one thing I did get treated to on our monthly food shop was “Just the ONE treat Veeronika!”. So my treat was usually a jar of Nutella I would eat in one sitting. As I got older, even when I moved to London, I stuck to the occasional treat rule. My treat I could never give up were Bounty Bars! So now, as a vegan, I decided to make my own and I must say….. they are D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!
