Can I get a WOOOO-HOOOOO!?! I have been a healthy-ingredient-obsessed baker since childhood. I read a lot, and I mean a lot, of cookbooks and blogs about making healthy food. I also have some well researched opinions on what constitutes a healthy ingredient, how to develop a healthy palate, and how to avoid BS "information." With the wealth of options now available for finding recipes, I actually teach classes on how to come up with the recipes/meals you want, starting with high quality sources so you won't waste your whole day figuring out substitutions (or waste food on experiments that end up in the compost). I can happily say that Debbie's book uses high quality ingredients and puts them into practice in delightful ways.

In general: five stars! Add it to your list of worthwhile starting places, whether or not you have allergies to consider. We could all do with a break from wheat, a step away from sugar and a permanent vacation from animal products.

The specifics:
I'm still leaving the stevia out of these recipes due to personal preference, but rest assured they can be sweet enough without it, especially for those who are already developing a taste for things not overly sweetened! A couple tablespoons of coconut sugar, or one tablespoon of brown rice syrup, if needed, should substitute well for the usual 3/8 Tbsp stevia without affecting the texture much. I haven't yet tried Debbie's recommendation for the brand of stevia with the best flavor.
I buy millet, buckwheat, sorghum, teff, quinoa, and amaranth in whole grain form, blending them into flour with a Vitamix, and then, as Debbie suggests, make my own gluten free baking mix as described in the book.

Baking can be tricky — there’s a lot of science involved. Flour density, amount of leavening, even the strength of your egg whites can all shape the final outcome. So given the somewhat scientific and definitely precise nature of baking, when you need to change your pantry of ingredients to better suit allergies and intolerances, baking gets tricky. And when you have to take out eggs, dairy, soy, sugar, and nuts plus go gluten-free, that’s really tricky. (Gluten and eggs perform similar functions, so you can coast by on just using one or the other. Not using both? That requires careful thought and well-designed recipes.)

Since vegan recipes exclude animal products, vegan baked goods are a logical go-to for folks who are allergic to eggs and/or have a dairy intolerance. Of course, vegan recipes often rely on wheat flour since gluten can pinch-hit for the binding power of eggs. Debbie Alder goes a step further, though, by using only gluten-free flours in her recipes. And she features an impressive array of them: sorghum, millet, quinoa, teff, buckwheat, and amaranth all play starring roles. How refreshing to see gluten-free baked goods that aren’t dependent on white rice flour and potato starch! Even more refreshing, Debbie uses tantalizing ingredients like chia and hemp seeds in her recipes, too, not to mention coming up with innovative ways to use spices as natural dyes. (Turmeric for yellow; paprika for pink.) And seeing as sugar is on her list of no-go ingredients, she relies on natural sweeteners like coconut nectar and dates, even including a few raw recipes made with dried figs.

Do you know what I just had for breakfast? Two "Apple Fritter Donut Holes" with 60 calories each, 2 g total fat, 0.0 mg cholesterol, 12 g carbohydrates, 30 mg sodium, 1g fiber, 2 g protein, 4 g sugars. I not only got the fabulous recipe with its equally fabulous accompanying photo from SWEET DEBBIE'S ORGANIC TREATS: ALLERGY-FREE & VEGAN RECIPES but also all that helpful nutritional information. How cool is that?

Those of us with food restrictions no longer have to sacrifice our favorite treats (such as my favorite donut holes) thanks to all the gifted bakers and chefs like Debbie Addler, owner of Sweet Debbie's Organic Cupcakes in Los Angeles, who are bringing forth splendid recipe books that reinvent all those once forbidden treats minus the gluten, eggs, dairy products, soy, sugar and nuts.

SWEET DEBBIE'S is an elegant and relevant allergy-free cookbook featuring recipes free of refined white sugar and all the other foods responsible for the great majority of food-allergic reactions. These least-tolerated foods are predominantly milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat and gluten. It is a formidable task to eliminate these ingredients from our favorite baked goods but Debbie has pulled it off. How fortunate we all are that she has shared her brilliant recipes with us.

I purchased this stunning book as soon as it came out and now that I have tried so many of the extraordinary recipes and can proclaim without hesitation that every recipe was a vibrant success, I am thrilled to give this wonderful, wonderful allergy-friendly, gluten-free vegan dessert book my enthusiastic 5 star rating. If I could I would give it 10 stars!
