Decadent whole grain brownies, cakes, cookies, pies and more.

Indeed. The subtitle of this cookbook says it all and the book more than delivers what it promises.

This exceptional cookbook, The Sweet Side of Ancient Grains, by Erin Dooner (the author and food blogger of Texanerin Baking), celebrates baking with ancient grains and more familiar 100% whole grains as well as all-natural, unprocessed ingredients. And, what a celebration it is!

The inspiring full color photographs and outstanding recipes will have you rushing to the kitchen to whip up a sweet treat with flavorful, nutty whole grain flours rich in fiber and complex carbohydrates as well as plant-based protein, vitamins and minerals. In fact, the recipes were meticulously developed so that the flavors and textures of the flours complement the ingredients in each recipe. However, nearly all of the recipes can be made with traditional or white whole wheat flour as well.

As an experienced baker and recipe developer, I can assure you that no one will ever guess gluten-free ancient grain flours such as buckwheat, quinoa and teff, or ancient whole grain flours such as barley and farro (einkorn, emmer and spelt), or even 100% whole wheat flours, were incorporated into their dessert treats!

Unlike so many, this cookbook does not skimp. Each well-written recipe is accompanied by at least one full-page color photograph, as is the first page of each chapter. In addition, the front matter of the book concentrates on the essentials--that is, understanding whole grains, measurements, ingredients and equipment. It is all done quite brilliantly.

Excellent! The beginning of the book teaches those of us new to the GF (and other kinds os) diet all about how it works, with great hints. Understanding how it works makes it less daunting. She gives ideas on how to change recipes to meet different needs. The pictures make me want to try all of them at once. I have a new GF son in law, and I got this hoping to find something to bake that he'll enjoy. I hit the jackpot.

Every chapter of this cookbook is filled with delicious photographs and recipes that are going to make your sweet tooth very happy. My family went nuts for the Praline Blondies and we've already flagged several more desserts to try soon. Even if you don't use a lot of specialty flours, you'll find plenty here to bake and enjoy!

I have been following Erin for a long time. She fills my emails with amazing recipes and is one of my favorite go-to websites. This book is a wonderful edition to my cookbooks. I recently discovered my gluten intolerance and she makes gluten free absolutely delicious!

I just want people to know what a great cookbook I just bought. What a colorful, well written book. I have to say, the phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words”, is best fit for this book. Her step by step instructions are wonderful! So many great tips and helpful footnotes. I would recommend this book to anyone out there looking for a whole grain cooking experience using ancient grains and not feeling guilty about making these delicious dessert recipes. Who doesn’t want a healthier desserts? I have made a few of Erin’s desserts from this cookbook, and I have to say wow!!!!! So give it a try and you will see what I mean. Delicious, healthy, whole grain desserts!

Really enjoyed trying out the recipes and using different types of flour and other ingredients. It was good trying something that's out of 'your comfort zone'
On all recipes that I've made had nothing but positive feed back from people that have tried them and they was shocked to find that they was 'healthy options'
Thank you for highlighting all the different types of grains out there that I would have normally ignored.
