When she’s not walking the catwalks model Daisy Lowe loves to cook and bake for friends and family. But being a model she has to be careful to stay in shape, ‘I always keep healthy alternatives to hand as I have a dreadful sweet tooth!’

Daisy has called on all her healthy-eating experience and is writing a new sugar-free cookbook called Sweetness & Light – 60 Recipes For Healthy Sweet Treats, out on 3rd July (Quadrille books, £16. Click here to buy). And because we're impatient lot here at* Grazia Daily* she agreed to plunder her recipe files exclusively for us in a series of special cook-along videos, which we’re releasing over the forthcoming weeks.

So without further ado here’s** Daisy special Almond Butter & Honey Chocolates**, below. ‘This recipe came about at fashion week. I am always running around and looking for something that will give me an energy boost. My friend and stylist Liz told me that if you mixed Manuka honey and almond butter it would give you an instant healthy sugar fix. So I set about working out how I could combine the two in a recipe.’

Daisy’s recipe also uses raw cacao that is rich in antioxidants and has no added fat or sugar. It also uses ingredients you can easily buy or you should already have in your cupboard and, thanks to some clever healthy swaps (Daisy lists them in her recipe below) you really don’t feel you’re ‘missing out’ by not having sugar.
