Ebook Description

Satisfy your sweet tooth with complex carbohydrates--no white flour here!We need to eat more whole grains. A diet centered on white flour and refined carbohydrates isn't good for our bodies or our waistlines. Beyond whole wheat are the healthiest "ancient" grains, including teff, buckwheat, and quinoa. These grains are free of gluten and additives, but can they--and flours such as 100 percent whole wheat, barley, and spelt--be used to make delicious desserts?The answer is a resounding YES, thanks to The Sweet Side of Ancient Grains. With recipes made from both ancient grains and more familiar 100 percent whole grains, Erin Dooner has created a must-have cookbook for anyone who wants to eat healthy but is "blessed" with a sweet tooth. There are 30 recipes with ancient grains, 31 with whole wheat, 4 with oats or oat flour, and 10 recipes for extras like ice cream, jam, and nut butters that don't contain any grains. Don't have access to certain ancient grains? All but a handful of the recipes can be made with traditional or white whole wheat flours! Unlike previous efforts at whole-grain dessert baking, this book relies on 100 percent whole and ancient grains and incorporates natural sugars wherever possible--all without compromising on results.75 color photographs
