|Bottom Line: Sugary Goodness for Those with Allergies|
Baking delicious, one-of-a-kind desserts is one thing, but when those desserts are gluten-free and vegan…now that’s something everybody can enjoy.
Cara Reed, creator of ForkandBeans.com, is sharing over 100 amazing and easy gluten-free, vegan recipes that are also unique from her blog. By using tasty and natural substitutions such as almond milk, soy butter, coconut oil and nut-based cream, your treats will be the star of the show with any crowd.
Creative and mouth-watering recipes include Churros with Chocolate Dipping Sauce, Pumpkin Cupcakes, German Chocolate Cake and Sweet Almond Braided Bread. So whether you’re gluten-free, vegan or just looking to try something a little more plant-based and a lot more delicious, this book has it all.
The author is a blogger first, Fork and Beans is her site. While the recipes in this book are tasty (and the ones I haven’t tried sound tasty), it is in part due to the fact that nearly everything has sugar in it. I try to eat healthy and bake healthy when I can, this is not the book for me in that aspect. It is the book for those who are just looking to work around their allergies and have great tasting baked goods. I’ve found that sugar can be omitted from most recipes (especially if they already have natural fruit sugar in them) and they taste really good still. Maybe not sugar addicting good, but really good. So I am mostly using this book as a guideline for new recipes and altering to make them healthier.
