My love of all things Hawaiian inspired today’s recipe blog.
This recipe is perfect for a mid morning nutritious snack to add a little Aloha vibe to your day.
It goes perfectly with a cup of herbal tea.
I used Kona coffee from Hawaii but if you are not from the Islands or a frequenter of them you can use any good quality ground coffee you fancy.
This one’s not for the kids!
