Naturally Sweet and Gluten-Free Allergy-Friendly Vegan Desserts: 100 Recipes Without Gluten, Dairy, Eggs, or Refined Sugar
Finally, a dessert book without gluten, eggs, dairy, or refined sugar! Allergy-friendly and entirely vegan, the sweets in Naturally Sweet and Gluten-Free are great-tasting and good for you too! Through years of recipe testing and receiving feedback from thousands of comments on her blog RickiHeller (previously Diet, Dessert and Dogs), Heller has taken great care to ensure that every recipe from this book will taste just as good as or even better than a traditional dessert. With a lower glycemic index than regular desserts, these healthy versions of traditional favorites — for example, Frosted Vanilla Cupcakes, Pumpkin Loaf, Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Chocolate Pecan Pie — are sure to delight. There is a huge array of desserts made with creative combinations of ingredients (yep, some vegetables too) and innovative, unusual uses of alternatives to provide the greatest health benefits possible. Who knew gluten-free, vegan desserts could be so delicious and delightful?
Cooks&Books&Recipes Featured Cook EA, on Naturally Sweet and Gluten-Free Allergy-Friendly Vegan Desserts:
When I first saw the front of Ricki Heller’s cookbook Naturally Sweet and Gluten-Free Allergy-Friendly Vegan Desserts, covered with luscious vanilla cupcakes topped with perfectly swirled chocolate frosting, I knew I had to make something from her book ASAP!
The problem: which recipe?? I finally chose one, which you can find here, but first let me give you a few more reasons why you’ll want to add a copy of Naturally Sweet and Gluten-Free to your cookbook shelf:
- All of the recipes are made without gluten, dairy, eggs, or refined sugar, and many are soy-free and nut-free or offer a nut-free option, making the cookbook user-friendly for anyone with multiple food sensitivities or intolerances.
- There are 100 allergy-friendly vegan recipes in the cookbook, so everyone in your household should find something delicious to bake and enjoy!
- Ricki gives a great introduction to all of the gluten-free flour, sweetener, and egg-replacement options available, so you can customize any of the recipes to your liking and to the ingredients in your own pantry.
OK, I’m off to my kitchen now — to cook another batch of cookies!
