Twin Cakes Delivery

I have a lot of love for Twin Cakes Bakery. Twin Cakes is run and created by my favourite twins and healthy living superstars Lori and Michelle from Pure2Raw.

Lori and Michelle are both certified raw vegan chefs with a passion for healthy living and a knack for making healthy food taste delicious.

Their own digestive and health issues drove them to start creating recipes for their "Super Natural" diet and create food better than what was available on the market.

They create the best raw food that I have ever tasted, and I have no doubt they will only become increasingly popular due to the quality of their product. 

Here are some their treats that I recently tried and loved!

Cashew Coconut Biscotti

Ingredients: organic cashews, organic coconut flakes, organic maple syrup, organic coconut sugar, organic vanilla, organic Himalayan sea salt coconut cashew biscotti

The biscotti is one of my favourite Twin Cakes treats!  It's perfect to enjoy with your morning cup of coffee or afternoon tea.  I love being able to indulge in one of my top sweet treats without getting a sugar high (followed by an energy low).  The cashew coconut is sweet, indulgent and puts Larabars to shame!  I'm obsessed with the cardamom biscotti as well.  I honestly think of it as one of the best things I've ever eaten.

Key Benefits: • Cashews are a great source of protein, copper, magnesium, and phosphorous. • Coconut flakes are a medium-chain triglycerides, which is a great source of energy, and full of fiber. • Sweetened with unprocessed sugars. A wonderful blend of coconut and vanilla flavors with a richness of cashews.
