Naturally Sweet & Gluten-Free will prove that you can have your cake, and great health too! The desserts and other baked goods found in this book were inspired by the author’s decision, after decades of baking and indulging in unhealthy sweets, to finally heed her body’s wake-up call and radically alter her diet.
The book features 100 dessert recipes all free of gluten, eggs, and dairy; many are also soy-free (or offer a soy-free option), corn-free, and nut-free (or offer a nut-free option). It includes a comprehensive introductory matter, including helpful information on ingredients, tips & techniques, tools & bakeware, and an at-a-glance pantry list
