2. Love, Bake, Nourish - Healthier Cakes and Desserts Full of Fruit and Flavor
This book will help change the way you bake. Great cookbook for those who want to combine their love of baking and nutrition. The recipes use no white flour or white sugar. Instead seasonal fruits and ancient flours (spelt, rye, buckwheat and nut flours) are used, to bring more depth of flavor and texture, and to create healthier baked goods. Though the ingredients are costly, but for a nourishing, love filled treat it's worth the occasional indulgence to make pure and wholesome cakes and desserts. The book is therefore more lifestyle inspiration than everyday cooking. It is an aspirational, yet very achievable, collection of recipes to guide you through baking in a more nourishing way.
