A mouthwatering treat from me to you with the Christmas countdown!

This weeks festive treat from me to you, comes more from a friend, to me, to you. I asked my oh so talented foodie friend and fellow blogger Sophia to share a festive recipe as I know how much people enjoy being in the kitchen and rustling up some delicious treats around the Christmas period. There's something so lovely about getting messy in the kitchen whilst listening to your favourite Christmas songs. She came up with a recipe for gingerbread spiced granola, which sounds DELICIOUS! It is also super healthy too, god knows we turn into such porky pigs in blankets around Christmas with all of the succulent sugary treats and heavy foods we indulge in so this is the perfect healthy alternative.

Sophia is another chronic illness fighter and she uses food as medicine. Her photos always make my mouth water and tummy rumble. If you love healthy food, I really would suggest checking out her Instagram @spooniesophia where she is fast becoming one of the best foodie accounts around. She also blogs at spooniesophia.wordpress.com where she shares more recipes, as well as blogging about other topics, from chronic illness to life in general. She is one of the 'Spoonful Of She' girls which is the YouTube channel I am starting in the new year so no doubt you will be hearing me talk more about her in the future! Thank you Sophia for the wonderful recipe!
