My name is Leah and I am the founder of Norah's Brownies.
I live in Hackney with my husband and two daughters, Lola and Norah. I have spent the last 6 years teaching DT in secondary schools and thought it was my chance to practice what I preach and start my own business.
I have an utter addiction to baked goods especially chocolate. But as a Type one Diabetic I always felt guilty about how much I indulged.
I started to look at alternative sugars. I found that coconut sugar had a lower Glycemic Index and kept a great flavour. My husband was having to cut out gluten and lactose from his diet, so the challenge was set.
I experimented with a variety of ingredients, ratios and timings and have found what I think to be the perfect brownie. All the brownies are hand made, gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free, with exciting flavours and toppings to give the brownie its signature look and taste.
