With Easter coming up, I know I’ll want to indulge in one of my favourite treats: marzipan. Since the traditional treat is packed with sugar, I’ve come up with this healthy alternative, which tastes like and has the same texture as the original- you won’t be able to tell the difference! This is gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free, requires no fancy equipment and not much time!
Makes 12 balls of marzipan
130g ground almonds
2 tbsp. maple syrup
3 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
1 tsp natural almond essence
Mix all of the ingredients together to get a dough-like texture, adding a splash of water if it needs to be stickier. Mould it into 12 balls, or make more and top your Simnel cake with it!
Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving.
