Book Description

Gleefully Gluten-Free (Healthy Desserts & Snacks) is a #1 Best Seller!


Here's what people are saying about Gleefully Gluten-Free!

"THIS is a cookbook that could make "healthy" and "gluten-free" go mainstream." - Patricia S.

"After trying some of the recipes in this cookbook, I am convinced that you can make delicious, healthful treats!" - Steven S.

"I had never thought of using some of these ingredients before, and everything I have tried is fantastic!" - Laurie H. 

After years of struggling with food allergies, bloat, sluggishness and irritability, Ruth Naylor finally discovered that she, like many other people, was gluten intolerant. She didn't like the idea of having to be on a special diet and never again eating her favorite comfort foods, so she went to work researching the best possible substitutes, without all the unhealthy ingredients!

She began replacing her regular flour with new options, like amaranth, quinoa, rice, and others that were full of nutrition. Before she knew it, she was feeling better than she had in a long time, and even began losing weight!

Give this sample a try! (this is one of Ruth's favorites!)

Cherry Chocolate Cheesecake (raw)

½ cup almonds (soaked overnight in water)
½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/8 tsp sea salt
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp raw cacao powder
2 Tbsp agave or raw honey
2 Tbsp cacao nibs
2 cups cashews (soaked for at least 1 hour)
¼ cup agave or raw honey
¼ cup pure maple syrup
¼ cup water
¼ cup cacao butter, melted
¼ cup coconut butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp sea salt
1 cup raw cacao powder
1 cup frozen or fresh cherries (regular or tart, thawed)
2 cups frozen berries (cherries would be best but any berry will do!)
¼ cup agave or raw honey
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

In a food processor combine almonds, coconut, salt, vanilla extract and cacao powder; pulse until crumbly. Add agave and cacao nibs; pulse until mixture comes together. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Using the same food processor, combine all filling ingredients except for cherries; process until completely smooth. Add the cherries and pulse until just incorporated. Pour over the crust and chill or freeze until ready to serve. For the sauce, blend all ingredients together until smooth. Drizzle over each cheesecake slice.
Serves 8 - 10

As you can see, you can still eat CHEESECAKE! And not only is it incredibly delicious, but nutritious as well. Make this complimentary recipe for your friends and family and see if they can tell the difference, (betcha they CAN'T)! Then come on back and see what other Gleefully Gluten-Free recipes there are to enjoy!

Other recipes include:
  • (Raw) Coconut Mango Balls
  • Easy Salted Maple Caramel Corn
  • Chocolate Almond Power Bar
  • Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream
  • German Chocolate Cake
  • Spicy Kale Chips
  • Loaded Oatmeal Cookies
  • Healthy Fudgesicles
  • Chilled Double Chocolate Torte
  • Almond Date Orange Cake
And many more...

Let Ruth take you on her personal journey from feeling sick and discouraged, to finding a better way to eat, and loving every minute! Gleefully Gluten-Free! (Healthy Desserts & Snacks) will prove to you that there's life beyond gluten sensitivity, and that living a gluten free lifestyle can be enjoyable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grateful for Gluten Free! July 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Okay, I have a confession. I LOVE sweets and adore baking decadent desserts for my family, but I've always been concerned that, even though delicious, these things are not very healthy. Imagine my delight when I discovered Ruth's Gleefully Gluten-Free cookbook! Now I don't have to feel guilty when baking for my family. The recipes in this book are absolutely delicious! They taste every bit as good as the unhealthy versions! I love that Ruth gives the definitions of the products she uses and also the health benefits they provide. It helps me understand why eating this way is so important. Even if you're not gluten intolerant or diabetic, you'll want to give these recipes a try! I definitely want this cookbook for my collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars More than a cookbook July 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Gleefully Gluten Free is more than just another gluten-free cookbook. It contains information about specialty foods, how to obtain them and all kinds of tips for using the products. Aside from that it also has some of the best gluten free recipes I have ever tried. I personally am not gluten intolerant but I have tried many of the desserts in the cookbook and they are ALL really good. My favorite is the chocolate pie! It is rich and creamy and so easy to make. The recipes in this book are great for anyone because they are highly nutritious and very satisfying without being sugary. Excellent for anyone looking for alternatives for low sugar recipes as well as eating raw foods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantabulous! July 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I knew there had to be a book out there with some good gluten free recipes in it. And I have found it. No more feeling jipped when everyone else is enjoying a sweet treat. In fact you could make these healthy treats and no one would know that they are gluten free. If you know anyone with Celiac disease, make them a treat and brighten their day!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Book!!! July 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The recipes I tried in this book were delicious and liked even by members of the family who weren't gluten intolerant. This book is also educational in that it teaches the health benefits of the different grains and ingredients you will be using in the book. Overall, it's a healthier way to eat--and healthy isn't often associated with "dessert"--and the desserts are still yummy!!! It's the kindest way to "treat" your family and friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! July 23, 2012
By Gail
Format:Kindle Edition
I love these recipes! My family and friends love them! Even those who aren't Gluten-free(ers) :) They are tasty, guilt-free and amazing!Some of my favorites are the "Chilled Double Chocolate Torte" (finally a yummy way to use those avacados!), the Loaded Oatmeal Cookies, and all the "ice cream" :) recipes!I used many of the cake recipes at my husband's birthday party and I had to make more later so he could try them :) they were That popular! Besides how tasty and guilt free they are; I Especially appreciate the Dependability of the recipes - I haven't had all of the same products every time - but if i need to substitute I have been able to rely on the finished product being reliably fabulous! Ruth's recipes are quickly becoming favorite classics in my family!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great sounding recipes November 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has some yummy-sounding recipes and most folks would love and appreciate what the book as to offer. However, I only rated it 3-star because I am also a vegan, so there were few if any recipes here that I could use "as is." The book is absolutely what it claims to be...and makes no pretense of offering anything other than gluten-free recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gleefully Gluten Free Healthy snacks AWESOME . . . . February 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gladly and gleefully thank the author for creating such an awesome book. I recently discovered that I am gluten intolerant, but oh how I love the sweets, breads, cakes, snacks and miss them. Now with the help from this easy to read book I can have some awesome desserts again. There are even dairy free ice cream recipes in here. I am so enjoying this book and I highly recommend for anyone not those that need gluten free desserts but anyone who wants to eat healthier. Thank you.
