I was very happy to be one of the testers for Ricki's soon to be published cookbook Sweet Freedom. I've been drooling over her posts for quite some time now and was thrilled to get the chance to be a small part of the excitement. Her cookbook is all baked goods (yum how can you say no to that!) and the thing I'm loving the most about the recipes is the fact that they taste like unhealthy delicious baked goods but are actually much better for you made with wholegrain flours and natural sweeteners alternatives. The recipes don't use wheat, eggs or dairy either. Seriously, how can you not be intrigued by now??
There's a long list of yummy things that will be in this cookbook so go check out the Facebook group and/or the blog showcasing many of the delicious goodies you can look forward to making! Below you can see some of the things I had the pleasure of trying out.
The orange raisin tea biscuits are completely addictive. I didn't even think I'd like them but the flavours just complement each other so well. How can something so yummy not be bad for me?? Definitely will be making these repeatedly.
When I made the old fashioned spice cake, I couldn't believe how it tasted (in a really good way). And it was so moist.
Peanut butter COOKIES that I don't have to feel too bad about eating?? Nothing more needs to be said.
This sunshine breakfast loaf was so good and it's another addictive baked good. I was constantly thinking about eating it and when I could snack on it next. So good.
These crispy fruit chews were great for when I needed some energy for studying!
