    Pistachio & Goji Berry Gluten-free Treacle Squares

    Looking for the perfect Autumn sweet treat? You need to give this pistachio and Goji Berry treacle squares recipe a go!

    "Cake or biscuits? Ah, decisions, decisions. Well, how about something “in-between”? You know, it’s not as dinky as a biscuit, so you won’t have to go back again and again, but not as big as a cake, so you won’t feel guilty for having seconds. Clever, right? Of course I wanted something suitably seasonal and a dark bake with treacle seemed just right. To add just a little bit of “healthiness”, I decided to make it gluten free and add goji berries which are packed with antioxidants which support the immune system – something we can all benefit from during the cold and dark months. These little squares are quite filling but not overwhelming, so they’re perfect for a cosy afternoon with a hot mug of tea."
