Healthy Bakes For Summer

Hi guys!

I hope you are all well and gearing up for #KeDezembaBoss – looking forward to those annual bonuses, habashwee! Snowflake has been kind enough to share some baking recipe with us.

Right about this time of the year, a lot of people are trying to shed off some weight picked up during winter but we encourage everyone to do it the healthy way. Don’t starve yourself, just eat healthy in moderate amounts. If you’re staying away from wheat bread, banting that is, then there’s always the idea of gifting someone with a loaf of freshly baked bread….mmmmm!Imagine that!

Check out the whole wheat bread and seedloaf, see which one you would like to bake and get on to it! Let us know how it turns out. Happy baking!
