Practically Raw Desserts Giveaway

ch5_gerchoccake_asf3_CROPPractically Raw Desserts by Amber Shea Crawley is filled with easy recipes for scrumptious cakes, pies, cookies, brownies, puddings, candies, pastries, frozen treats, and more. Chef Amber Shea’s raw treats are totally free of dairy, eggs, gluten, wheat, soy, corn, refined grains, refined sugars, yeast, starch, and other nutrient-poor ingredients. Many recipes are also free of oils, nuts, and added sugars.

The title “Practically Raw” is a play on words, as Amber’s recipes are practical because they’re easy to make and don’t require fancy equipment or weird ingredients, and they’re practically raw because directions for using an oven are included where applicable for those who don’t have dehydrators. Most recipes also list ingredient substations, recipe various and chef’s tips. The recipes are easy to follow and don’t require to much time to make, so they’re great for raw food newbies and people who say they’re not good at baking, but they’re interesting and creative enough for kitchen veterans to enjoy.

ch8_turtlebites_asf2_CROPIf you think raw “baking” is just for hot summer months, think again! There are plenty of drool worthy fall treats in Practically Raw Desserts, such as Deep-Dish Caramel Apple Pie, Pecan Chai Spice Bars, Austrian Sacher Torte, Dark Chocolate Truffle Tart with Macaroon Crust, German Chocolate Cake, Maple Streusel Coffee Cake Squares and Pecan Shortbread Cookies. There are even recipes for cookies, candies and bars that could fill holiday treat boxes for gift giving such as Marzipan Buckeye Bars, Salted Tahini Caramels, Sugar Cookie Cutouts, Russian Tea Cakes, Turtle Bites and Classic Cacao Truffles.

    My favorite dessert is usually anything with chocolate. I would love to try more raw desserts. The best dessert I ever had was during a raw foods class where we made fruit pie. Delicious!
