Chocolate Peppermint Slice by The Fat Foodie

When you’re in the mood for a serious piece of chocolate biscuit nothing fits the bill better than a slice of chocolate traybake. This chocolate peppermint slice recipe came about because my Mum had given me a pack of three Fry’s Peppermint Creams¬†that she wasn’t going to use and I figured I’d be able to make something tasty with them.

Iron-Rich Flapjacks by The Fat Foodie

I often have low iron levels and so I like to try to have snacks at hand which are packed full of natural sources of iron, such as these iron-rich flapjacks. As much as I enjoy eating meat on occasion, it can get a bit tedious (and expensive) to frequently eat a lot of meat, but thankfully, there are lots of great ways you can incorporate iron into your diet without always having to resort to eating meat all the time.
