A few weeks ago I was offered my first cookbook for review. I told myself if I was offered a review I would only accept if the product was something I really thought you guys would enjoy. When I found out that Debbie Adler’s Sweet Debbie’s Organic Treats Cookbook was full of healthy whole foods recipes containing no gluten, dairy, soy, sugar, or nuts I was on board and super excited to share it with you all.
The first thing I noticed about this cookbook was how scrumptious the cover looked. The photography throughout the whole book is just gorgeous. You will want to eat every page. The book also contains a ton of great information. I really enjoy how Debbie goes into detail about each specialty flour, ingredient, and tool needed to make her recipes work.
Debbie has plenty of experience in baking luscious treats. She started out trying to bake sugar free sweets at home and once she got it right moved on to having her own bakery. Once she realized her son had severe food allergies she revamped all of her recipes to make them allergen free and better than ever. She converted her bakery over to allergen free only baking as well. I would love to pop in for a visit but she’s clear across the county from me. That is one of the reasons this book is so great. Now I can make some of her fantastic goodies in my own kitchen. If you enter my giveaway you can too!
Due to Old Man Winter keeping me from the store lately, I have not had a chance to try any of these recipes so far. My local grocery stores do not carry items like teff flour and coconut nectar. Many of them stand out as must try as soon as a trip to Whole Foods can be made.
Here are some of the recipes that are begging me to make them.
Sweet Debbie’s Salted Caramel Apple Muffins sound divine. I had Alan go through the book with me and he agrees these are at the top of our must make list.
When I saw Debbie Adler’s recipe for Lemon Parsnipannies I added them to my list of fantastic treats to try. I have recently fallen in love with parsnips and I had never thought to use them in such a way before.
The third recipe that really stood out to me was her Caramel Glazed Fakin’ Bacon Brownies. She uses an awesome secret ingredient to make vegan faux bacon that sounds so amazing!
Lastly I know I will have to try her Coconut Crunch Donut Holes. Everyone knows about my insane addiction to all things coconut.
This book is really packed with awesome healthy sweets. I really can’t wait to try them all. Debbie Adler is a super genius for figuring out how to make all of these everyday treats vegan and allergen free without sacrificing taste.
