Naturally sweet organic treats!

Cookies, cakes, and petits fours; pancakes and fresh fruit pops and Spicy Rice Pudding, too: who would have imagined that sweet indulgences could actually be healthy? But they are, because these yummy treats are made with all-natural, non-processed ingredients—like agave, almond flour, goji berries, tapioca, and good old-fashioned rolled oats. So everyone can finally strike the perfect balance between giving their families and friends the desserts they crave, and sticking to a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains.

Prepare pantry staples like almond milk, yogurt, fresh fig jam, and applesauce; great breakfast dishes, such as Apple, Almond & Honey Granola and Banana Buttermilk Oat Pancakes; or a perfect meal-closer like Chocolate Hazelnut Fondue. Or whip up Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Poached Pears in Coconut Milk, Carrot Quinoa Cupcakes, Ginger Date Truffles, and Carob Fudge Squares. In addition to being delicious and nutritious, these recipes often yield smaller portions—so you can have your cake, eat it too, and never feel guilty about it!

Many people have been taking steps to clean up their diet in recent years, but one of the hardest parts is figuring out how to make favorite recipes work without refined sugar, white flour, or other common staples. Especially problematic can be sweets, but authors Michal Moses & Ivana Nitzan offer solutions in the form of Organic Sweets and Treats, a new cookbook featuring more than 70 recipes for all kinds of delectable goodies. Many of the recipes in here are either vegan, dairy-free, and/or gluten-free, making these treats very accessible to people with food allergies or intolerances. For a simple dessert, try Chocolate Avocado Mousse or Banana Date Ice Cream. Try recipes for different kinds of brownies, cookies, crumbles, and more, using fruit, peanut butter, chocolate, coconut, and other yummy ingredients.

In fact, lots of these recipes would be ideal for entertaining, whether for formal meals or get-togethers involving copious amounts of food. The recipes in Organic Sweets and Treats will not disappoint.
