A home-made afternoon tea is a wonderful treat for Mother’s Day. This year, we want to help you prepare a beautiful spread of delicious treats that can make you feel good too. Here are our eight favourite recipes to help you make a delicious, guilt-free afternoon tea.
First up, a very healthy treat: Salted Caramel Granola Bars. Made with honey, rather than sugar, these bars are stuffed with delicious ingredients that are really good for you. See the recipe below:
If her favourite flavour is chocolate, then we would love to suggest these gooey Salted Caramel and Raspberry Brownies. This is a classic brownie recipe which is enhanced by our munchy Salted Caramel Seeds.
Mix up the flavours of your afternoon tea with our energising Honey and Lemon Bliss Balls. Make a big batch of these and save any leftovers to have as a snack at work or at the gym in the week. They’re gluten free, dairy free and free from refined sugar too!
Afternoon tea would not be complete without a Victoria Sponge cake. In our delicious recipe below we have added a healthy touch with fresh strawberries and sprinkles of Honey Seeds.
Show your mum some love with our popular Shortbread Heart Biscuits. These beautiful buttery biscuits also make a brilliant Mother’s Day gift.
Quick to make, this Choccy Apricot Rocky Road recipe is a much more healthy alternative to a traditional chocolate rocky road. Chop them up into scrumptious bite-sized pieces.
Pair these sweet treats with some savoury snacks for a balanced, healthy afternoon tea. Vegetarian friendly ideas include cucumber sandwiches with Omega Sprinkles, carrot and celery crudités with Munchy Hummus or our delicious Mushroom and Garlic Stuffed Arancini
Last of all – don’t forget the tea! These treats are all best accompanied with a steaming cup of tea and a good chat! For a healthy choice, you might want to consider fresh mint tea or green tea.
