In a nutshell, because brevity is my hallmark lately,this book is great, yea, even Great.
All of her delicious creations are suitable for those avoiding wheat/gluten, dairy and refined sugars. By refined sugars I mean “table sugar” because she does use some maple/agave syrup- you could also sub honey. You could even sub cane sugar if you prefer it, still enjoying the goodness of the remaining components. It’s all about what changes you are ready for :) She also uses dates to sweeten a lot of the desserts, and adds a little liquid sweetener by way of an extra kick.
The author has graciously posted some sample recipes from the book on her website here.
And I myself, keep meaning to post the Brazil Nut Milk Cookies and Cream Ice Cream on here because it is so incredibly fantastic. I will, I will.
(I’m just waiting for summer to come- the sun was passing through this week, and I have faith it will return. I shall have my brazil nuts at the ready)
