Flaxseeds are undoubtedly miniature powerhouses of nutrients – chock a block with protein, fibre, healthy fats, antioxidants and vital minerals. They are also one of nature’s best sources of lignans; phytoestrogens renowned for their potent hormone-balancing, anti-cancer and heart protective properties.

This healthy recipe provides an irresistible sugar and gluten-free alternative to traditional fudges.
