Twist & Sprout came to be back in 2013 and is the passion project of Scottish chef and nutritional consultant Lorna. Through Twist & Sprout Lorna succeeds at making plant-based eating easy and accessible to all. As a busy Mum of two energetic little boys, she prides herself on her practical, realistic and down-to-earth approach. Her goal is to guide, support and inspire her clients to achieve optimum health, hydration and happiness through plant-based eating. In fact, she’s so passionate that she’s developed her own signature method of eating which she now teaches.
Lorna’s career in wholefoods catering began in 2009 as the manager of Australian Smoothie Bar, The Raw Kitchen. It was here that Lorna truly discovered the power of plant-based eating and cemented her belief and approach - but most importantly she found the passion that remains with her to this day. It just also happens to be the birthplace of the delicious little Sweet Treats - macaroons!
On returning to Scotland, Lorna pioneered plant-based eating and established her successful market stall, Ziggy’s, in Edinburgh where these macaroons were always a firm favourite. Since then, they have been a constant in Lorna’s professional life, travelling with her throughout her career: from her very own progressive raw food retreats in Scotland, to the organic detox retreat centre in the jungle of Costa Rica and more recently to London, where she managed the UK’s first ever raw food restaurant.
Now based in Aylsham, Norfolk with her family, Lorna felt it was time to share her easy breezy approach to eating more plant foods - and what better way than through nutritious and delicious Sweet Treats.

We use 100% plant-based top quality produce - organic and fair trade wherever possible. We don’t use dairy, wheat, gluten, refined sugars, soy or palm oil in our products.
We work carefully below 40 degrees with our ingredients to respect and preserve their natural nutritional plant properties. We use cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil, store our maple syrup in glass bottles, and use single origin raw cacao powder in our chocolate macaroons. Check out our Instagram @twist_sprout where you’ll find us celebrating cacao and all it’s glory.
Tree Harvest are our main supplier. We love them because they provide us with natural non timber based products that are not tested on animals (vegan). They also support and develop ethical community base projects and prioritise taking care of local producers too.
In short, their values align with ours at Twist and Sprout - they put people before profit.
We use responsibly sourced, low impact environmentally friendly packaging throughout production from start to finish. All our products are wrapped in a fancy little greaseproof paper that’s held together with string made from natural fibre. We send them inside unbranded and unbleached brown cardboard boxes, alongside our info cards - which are printed on recycled pulp paper.
Our delicious macaroons are available to buy in boxes of 6 or 9. We also offer a monthly subscription (which you can pause at any time). We send our subscription boxes out on the first Monday of each month. All taxes are included in the price per item and shipping is calculated at checkout. 5% of our profits are donated to The Trussell Trust
