As a Coeliac, I find it so hard to find gluten free granolas in the supermarket that aren’t full of sugar or being sold for a ridiculous price. I LOVE to snack on granola, so much so that I have been known to eat an entire bag in the space of an hour over work (terrible I know, but when it tastes so good how can you not?!).

I am currently a student of Biomedical Science, and I hope to pursue a career in sports nutrition after I graduate. Apart from food, my great passion in life is running — something I do competitively. But it was an injury-related break in my running career that got me into the kitchen for the first time. As a sufferer of celiac disease, I've always had to carefully manage my diet, and being out of action gave me the spare time to explore ways to make gluten-free sweet treats that truly deliver on flavour. I soon discovered that food can be healthy whilst looking and tasting fantastic.
