Healthy Wagon Wheels - THE BAKE-OFF BAKE-OVER

The Great British Bake-Off is back for another series and I couldn't be more excited about it! This show is so popular every year with millions of people tuning in to see the bakers creating the most delicious looking treats. Every episode is always filled with amazing looking food, but it's never suitable for people like me following a free-from diet. I absolutely love seeing all the creations but it does leave me feeling a little sad I can't recreate the recipes at home...but that's when I thought, why can't I?

I know there must be loads of people feeling the same way I do so I've decided to start this new series on my blog called 'The Bake-Off Bake-Over' where every week I'll be choosing 1 recipe from the Great British Bake-Off to recreate at home....Nourishing Amelia style! Each recreation will be gluten free, vegan AND refined sugar free. This week I'm starting with Wagon Wheels!

The bakers on the GBBO had to make Wagon Wheels as their first technical challenge on this weeks bake-off which are a really classic treat you will remember from your childhood. Classically they consist of two biscuits with marshmallow and jam sandwich filling, covered in a chocolate coating...yep, pretty heavenly! But definitely not vegan or gluten free!

My spin-off is just as delicious but with a slight twist. I decided against attempting to make a vegan marshmallow and instead opted for a vanilla cream which is arguably more delicious, especially when combined with the sweet strawberry jam. The homemade gluten free biscuits are perfectly crunchy with a hint of vanilla and the dark chocolate coating is so smooth and rich. These Healthier Wagon Wheels may be made out of more natural ingredients and with less sugar but all the amazing tastes are still there. You have to try enjoyed with a cup of tea!

Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for my second 'Bake-Off Bake-Over' next Sunday, and be sure to follow me on Instagram to see a sneak peak of what I'll be making.

Live Happy, Live Healthy
