We’ve all been there: though you promised yourself you’d be good and only eat healthily this week, you get home from a tough day at the office and those carb-loaded chocolate bars in the cupboard are calling your name.

There are healthy treats you can enjoy too.

With this in mind – and to tackle those dastardly sugar cravings – we’ve created a list of the tastiest healthy treats you can make from the comfort of your own home.
