This book is not for those of us who live and function in the real world. Most of the ingredients or at least key ingredients-such as agave nectar, fat free fruit juice sweetened yogurt, finely shredded unsweettened reduced fat coconut are not readily available to the average person/market. May not break the calorie budget with these dessert recipes but will certainly break the food budget with all the specialty ingredients. Never mind that the author believes that we have enough time to process our own non-processed wheat flour and so forth. Hugely disappointed in this book.

I really enjoy sweets and hoped this book would suggest some lower calorie or healthier treat recipes to appease my sweet tooth. Basically this is just a series of regular recipes made with rather high cost and hard to find substitutes like coconut sugar. And if you are allergic to agave nectar - forget it! This book uses gallons of it.
Save your money and experiment with substitutes on your own.
The recipes aren't even that low calorie.
The only reason this didn't get a two-star from me was that I enjoyed reading bits from people on the show but these are not the main focus of the book. It was a disappointment.

Looking back now at the five-star reviews, I strongly suspect a couple to be schills. Sorry I was taken in.

I have three of Devin's cookbooks and I've become a huge fan of Devin Alexander. I've been able to follow all her recipes and pretty much found all the ingredients needed for the recipes. I'm so happy the recipes focus on great taste and natural ingredients. I've even learned of products that I didn't know existed! Such as stevia diet soda. I now love 'em.

I'm currently drinking a skinny temple as we speak. For thanksgiving I took a batch of the coconut macaroons and they were all eaten in 2 minutes! Then I let everyone know they were a light version!

I'm excited to try all the other recipes in the book. The book also has Devin's famous brownies! They are the best. A word of caution, they are so good that you must exercise self control. I only make them when I'm going to share. Otherwise I'd have 12 of them all by myself. Delicious!!

I'll be making the pumpkin bites this weekend. I'm sure they'll be great too!!

All in all another great book by Devin Alexander!

I kind of wish Biggest Loser would get on the band wagon or Organic / Non Processed / Etc. It seem a lot of these and recipes in their other books have the "semi home made" kind of take, which requires using packaged/processed foods. I don't eat that garbage, so I have to modify recipes. I want cook books from scratch with real ingredients.

Short version: Don't waste your money on this pathetic excuse for a cookbook.

Long version: As someone with a sweet tooth who could stand to lose some weight, I bought this book with the hopes of learning some tested recipes that were easy on the calories that were still satisfying. Honestly, I think sprinkling some sugar on the pages and eating the book itself would be more appetizing than most of the nonsense listed on the inside. Whoever said this book isn't made for people in the real world with actual lives that don't revolve around dieting was right on the money. The folks on the ranch had all day to come up with this stuff and had loads of ingredients at their disposal with no cost to them, so yeah, it's easy to make these long-winded low-calorie recipes when it's your televised duty. But the average person with a job and a life will quickly tire of these lousy recipes. Allow me to elaborate on why this book is a steaming pile of low-fat crap:

1. Expensive ingredients. Most of the recipes call for at least one overpriced diet food like Kashi, agave nectar, fruit-sweetened yogurt, reduced-fat organic coconut flakes, or Biggest Loser brand protein powder. Not everyone can afford a can of their powdered crap for a smoothie or a $6 bag of coconut.

2. A lot of "non-recipes." Mixing grapes with sour cream or peeling a mango are not recipes. Yeah, I kid you not, one or the recipes is a mango cut in the shape of a flower and the only ingredient is the mango. Eating a handful of berries on a stick is good for you, but it's not a recipe. There are a lot of "recipes" in this book that are simply bowls of mixed fruit.

3. Screw agave nectar.

I'm a huge fan of ALL of Devin Alexander's cookbooks and was so excited about trying out the recipes in this book! I didn't even look through it at the store before purchasing because I trust anything with Devin's name on it. However, when I got home and saw all the lists of natural ingredients and then had trouble finding them in the supermarket I felt a little deflated! Still, I decided maybe seeking out these natural ingredients would be a great way to introduce myself to some healthy alternatives to the sweeteners and flours I've used in the past! I also discovered a local natural food store that I hadn't even stepped into before. I am SO glad to have found these more natural ways to enjoy food and I have Devin and BL Desserts Cookbook to thank for that!

The first recipe I tried was the Pecan Praline Cookie Thins - OH MY GOODNESS! Every bit as delicious as pecan pie and so easy to make.

If you don't mind going through a little extra effort initially to educated yourself about these natural ingredients and where to find them this book is a MUST HAVE! Obviously, to those who gave this book poor reviews it wasn't worth the extra effort - they must not have tried those Pecan Pralines. ;)
