Hannah’s Story

After being diagnosed with Endometriosis, I started baking healthier versions of my favourite treats (mainly cakes) to help control my symptoms.

I believe life is too short not to enjoy your favourite foods and I’m on a mission to bring flavour and excitement back to those living with health issues and food intolerances.

How it all began

When I first decided to start Hannah’s Pantry I wasn’t sure how honest and open I wanted to be about how it all began. Endometriosis (Endo) isn’t a well known condition or one that is openly talked about.

From a young age I was prescribed many medications and underwent many surgeries, but unfortunately they had limited success in managing my condition.

I began to realise medication could only help so much and started looking into alternative methods of healing and ways of managing my symptoms.

Encouraged by success stories I had read about, I made the decision to drastically change my diet and gain back the control I had lost over my body. It was a huge challenge but by far the best decision I have made yet.

With it still being argued as to whether Endometriosis is an auto immune condition or not, I took on a huge amount of knowledge on inflammation, digestion and gut health and how the 3 are all so closely linked to the immune system.

I began to understand that we are affected so heavily by the foods we feed our body and I began to experiment with recipes. At first it was only small changes, but my confidence very quickly grew and as I started to create such delicious recipes, baking and cooking became a kind of addiction.

I do not believe in a restricted diet but have instead have found a way to enjoy my favourite foods with a nutritional twist and it really is crazy how small changes have gone such a long way to helping my symptoms and heal my body.

What I’m doing now

I never expected Hannah’s Pantry to grow into what it is today so quickly. It all began as a hobby and never in a million years did I think I’d become a business woman or entrepreneur.

I began by selling my cakes to friends & local cafes which were a huge hit and led me to become a trader at Greenwich Market. This was a massive milestone for me and it really is an amazing feeling having others with health issues or food intolerances visit week after week for a great slice of cake!

From the moment I realised my cakes were being so thoroughly enjoyed, I knew I wanted to take this all further and launched my range of  free from Cake Mixes. I could see a clear gap in the market and I couldn’t wait to create a product which would allow my customers to bake my delicious recipes from the comfort of their own home.

It is so incredibly exciting to see Hannah’s Pantry growing so quickly. I really want to do the best I can for you, so please engage across any social media and let me know what you think.

Much Love,
