How is everyone finding this heat wave? Unbelievable right?! I don’t even remember the last time we had a full summer in the UK but i’m absolutely loving and making the most of it!

I know the heat makes us crave all things cold but I also think dessert is wanted regardless of the temperature outside- these cinnamon squares would be the perfect afternoon tea or picnic accompaniment don’t you agree?

That’s what I had in mind with the recipe, something you could make and take with you on a picnic, something for the whole family (especially cinnamon lovers!) plus, the added puree increases the fibre content which is a cheeky way of sneaking it in if you find it hard to do so.

Give these a go and let me know what you think!

All my love,
