    Came across this the other day as I was browsing my shopping. Not tried it yet but as well as sugar free it's vegan ... I paid 99p each for the last 10 bars. RRP £2.95.... thought it was worth the risk being xylitol . .

    Be very careful if you have a dog as chocolate is bad and xylitol is fatal.

    I can't answer your question for that but it is low GI and believe it's OK for gluten free diets....

    Thank you for the heads up. I've got 4 German Shepherds, only one of which lives in the house. We rescue & rehome them so pretty well up on the goods & bads.
    It's nice to know other people are food savvy too.
    Thanks

    Thanks for that. But I stay away from all grains low GI and gluten free. I feel much better with out. Even if it doesn't spike my BG
    I might try a bit of coconut flour and see.

    I'm always substituting things. If it works I do it again, if not was worth a try. I imagine you won't need as much coconut flour.....

    I looked it up on Google and some suggestions are as little as a third coconut flour is needed to replace flour. I'll start with that and work my way up.

    I don't have spelt flour so used soy flour. Chickpea flour would also work. I wouldn't use coconut flour as it tends to suck all the moisture out of other ingredients.

    Ok thanks. I will pick up some chickpea flour. I think authentic falafel's use chickpea flour anyway.

    I think there are beans of some sort hiding beneath the mash!

    Today:

    B: Egg on toast

    L: Tofu sausage sandwich

    D: Squash & red lentil hot pot, with veg

    I also had a melon-based smoothie in the afternoon, whilst basking in the sun

    Red stuff (veg in herby tomato sauce) with mixed beans and chopped up sausages through it topped with mash. I used the Farmfoods Veggie Kitchen sausages (5.3g carb / 14g protein per 2 sausages) :cat:

    B: golden milk

    L: veg juice - this one had beetroot in it - said to be good for blood pressure

    D: BBQ! @Ledzeptt predicted the sun would come back so we made the most of it. New sausage today was Taifun barbecue sausage with a skoosh of sriracha mayo, farmfoods burger, smoked tofu strips, garlic mushrooms, coleslaw etc. Swedish Glace for pudding because it's summer.
