The first thing I noticed upon receiving Debbie's cookbook was the generous amount of recipes included, which brought a huge smile to my face. Why? Because during our hunt for gluten-free cookbooks, one prominent thing I noticed is that they were most often filled with medical fluff instead of actual recipes. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm interested in the research and statistics related to food allergies just as much as the next person, but when I'm looking to purchase a cookbook, I want the RECIPES more than anything else. Another thing I've noticed about most allergy-free and specialty diet cookbooks is that they include a lot of ingredients that aren't readily available in small towns, like the one I live in, but I've made five recipes from Debbie's cookbook so far, and that hasn't been a problem. One visit to my local Kroger, and I'm able to stock up on every item needed. This is another big plus for me, because I don't have the time (or patience) when it comes to hours of searching for ingredients. I want them all at my fingertips in one convenient location.
The first recipe I made was the Cosmic Chocolate Chip Cookies (page 58). These cookies are DELICIOUS! The first time I made them was for testing purposes only, and I was pleasantly surprised at the flavor. Many vegan recipes I've tried in the past have always left a bad aftertaste in my mouth, but these didn't. I was so impressed with this recipe that I made two batches to take to one of my son's graduation parties this past May. It was a wonderful feeling knowing that our guests were not only eating a dessert that was good for them, but it was an even greater reassurance knowing that I didn't have to worry over it elevating my son's blood sugar. The other recipes I've prepared are: Blondies With Roots (page 46), Caramel Glazed Fakin' Bacon Brownies (page 50), Oatmeal Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookies (page 57), and Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes (page 104). All of them passed my tastebuds with flying colors. My husband and kids enjoyed them too, and that's a huge compliment because they are extremely picky eaters.
I'm looking forward to trying out more of Debbie's recipes during this upcoming holiday season, because we have some extended family members who are diabetics, like my son, and others who are trying to live a healthier lifestyle. It seems we're always exchanging healthy/gluten-free/sugar-free recipes anytime there's a family get-together, and I have no doubt Sweet Debbie's Organic Treats will be a huge hit. Thank you, Debbie!
Sweet Debbie’s Organic Treats includes recipes for many other baked goods, which are soon to be your go to allergen and gluten free treats:
Salted Caramel Apple Muffins
Cosmic Chocolate Chip Cookies
Blondies With Roots
Mocha Italian Espsresso Cupcakes
Sweet Cranberry Hemp Bars and many more!
It can be incredibly difficult to adjust to life with food allergies. I’m grateful that my children have only experienced major food intolerance which they seemingly outgrew, although I am allergic to almonds and mustard (queer combo, I know, but the almond issue makes many gluten free/paleo recipes impossible for me). I love to bake, and now I have new recipes to share with my friends and family that are full of flavor and have a more traditional baked good texture, which I deem a highly important quality in gluten free baking. No one enjoys a dense, crumbly baked good!
Would I recommend Sweet Debbie’s Treats?
Wholeheartedly. I think that Sweet Debbie’s Treats is a great primer for those who are new to allergen, vegan, and gluten free baking. It also has recipes with lots of complex flavors that are sure to please. While many of the ingredients may sound foreign (I hadn’t heard of coconut nectar before), they are often readily available at local supermarkets and health food stores or via the internet. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to pamper yourself and your loved ones with tasty baked goods, without the worry of cross-contamination (as you baked them yourself, or with the help of little helpers).
I've given copies to friends who have to follow a gluten free diet, as well as avoiding some major allergens, and have only heard positive reviews from them as well. They especially found the primer on ingredients helpful.
