I am absolutely loving yacon syrup.  Yacon is a tuber native to South America. Rich in inulin, a type of fibre that breaks down slowly and provides food for beneficial bacteria in our gut. It’s now popular as a natural sweetener as it has a low glycemic index meaning it can be helpful for balancing blood sugar levels. Available as a syrup it has a light molasses flavour – perfect for making biscuits, cakes and granolas. Thankfully companies such as Alara are now selling it. Alara also sell a great range of delicious superfoods which are perfect to add to these biscuits. I love the caramel taste of lucuma but you could also add a few goji berries or raw cacao nibs too.
