Healthy Cinnamon Oatcake With Ganache

We can't believe that it's January already! We don't know where the past few weeks have gone, but we're here to kick off the new year with a brand new recipe feature, from the lovely Monalouge blog. Like most, we definitely had out fair share of sugary treats over the Christmas holidays, so we thought this would be the perfect time to share a recipe that cuts out some of the not-so-wholesome baking ingredients (while remaining utterly delicious). 

This cake recipe certainly doesn't look like diet food, but it's the perfect way to stay on track during January and throughout 2017, by allowing you to have a tasty, chocolatey treat, without the heaps of sugar and fat. To find out how to make this healthier alternative to your typical shop-bought or home-baked treat, read on for full recipe details! To see the original post, head over to Mona's blog here
