Can you really have your cake and eat it AND get your nutrients too? Illustrated with gorgeous color photographs of delectables like Cinnamon-Crunch Stuffed Cake, Mocha Scones and Peach Pie with Streusel, "Sweet & Easy Vegan" shows that a sweet and rewarding treat can contain more than empty calories.

This book will appeal to a wide range of audiences, particularly those wanting to avoid refined sugars, those with food sensitivities, and those avoiding inflammatory carbohydrates. Robin Asbell covers not just desserts but also sweet breakfast dishes like Pumpkin-Spice Granola, Pomegranate and Dried Blueberry Muesli, and Raspberry Muffins. But do not be fooled: the recipes may use natural sweeteners but that doesn't make them low-sugar. Indeed, several of them call for 1/2-1 cup of maple syrup or brown rice syrup, very sweet and very expensive ingredients.

With an introduction that explains the sources and uses of various alternative sweeteners like palm sugar, agave, and honey, this cookbook will prove a useful manual for anybody interested in increasing their nutrient intake while still satisfying a sweet tooth.
