I had seen *The Skinny Bakery popping up on my social media feeds and i was dying to try their baked goods, as they sounded and looked so tasty.
*The Skinny Bakery was founded in 2013 by Mariella Forte, and the brand and its products are inspired by “Skinny Lattes”.
Mariella experimented endlessly to discover delicious baked recipes, that contain a fraction of the calories.
The healthy handmade baked goodies use alternative ingredients from sweet potato, beetroot, to tofu and quark. Each piece typically contains 30-40 calories and has less fat and sugar compared to other typical baked goods, due to the vegetable, tofu, and quark substitutes.
The grab-and-go packs make for the perfect snacks.
*The Skinny Bakery offer next day UK delivery and their baked goods can be frozen for up to 5 months.
Some of *The Skinny Bakery clients include: Little Mix, Louboutin and Vita Don Tee.
There are a range of goodies on offer, which include gluten free and dairy free options.
I had the pleasure of sampling the following:
Carrot cake sponges piped with a quark based low fat cream cheese frosting.
Beetroot sponges piped with a quark based low fat cream cheese frosting.
Chocolate sponges piped with our signature tofu-chocolate frosting. Low fat and a good source of protein. 21% tofu, 25% low fat yoghurt.
Chocolate cookies made with egg whites and dairy-free chocolate. Crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside.
Soft dairy-free chocolate chip and orange biscuits.
After sampling each one, i must say i am so impressed.
The texture of the sponge in the pearl range was light and moist.
You would never have guessed that there was beetroot or tofu incorporated into them.
If i had to choose, the Carrot Pearls were my favourite.
They tasted exactly like carrot cake, a perfect balance of carrot, cinnamon, walnut and cream cheese.
The Choc & Orange Cookies were tasty too. They was crunchy on the outside and soft inside.
I would have liked more of a stronger flavour of chocolate and orange coming through.
But none the less i still enjoyed them with a cuppa, i more than enjoyed them to be fair – i ate the whole pack.
The Chocolate Meringues were hands down my favourite overall though, they was utterly divine.
A light crispy meringue, with a smooth gooey chocolate filling inside.
If you are a serial snacker like me, then i can highly recommend heading on over to *The Skinny Bakery website and treating yourself to some of their tasty goodies.
I have already placed another order this week, and i can’t wait to get my mits on the Chocolate Meringues.
