"Looking for a way to eat more baked goods without the guilt? Steen and Noyes’s (Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day!) latest title featuring whole grain flours, less-refined sugars (agave, Sucanat), and minimally processed fats like coconut and olive oils may be the answer. This may sound like a recipe for slightly sweetened cardboard, but the tempting photos for recipes such as sweet potato waffles, braided almond oat bread, Kicked-Up Chocolate Cookies, and caramel nut barley squares tell a different story. Savory items such as breads, bagels, and crackers complement the sweet. Most recipes use a mix of flours, and a guide to flours and other ingredients is included. VERDICT Vegans who were drawn to Kim Boyce’s Good to the Grain but didn’t feel up to adapting her whole-grain baking recipes will be pleased with this title. This standout work should also appeal to bakers looking for healthier recipes than those found in popular vegan baking books by authors such as Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Terry Hope Romero, Doron Petersan, and Erin McKenna." — Library Journal
