Praise For Paleo Sweets and Treats: Seasonally Inspired Desserts that Let You Have Your Cake and Your Paleo Lifestyle, Too

"Readers who pick this volume up anticipating dry-looking baked goods and fruit smoothies are in for a pleasant surprise. Aimed at those on the Paleo diet or at those simply trying to eat healthier, this collection of treats is a win-win for anyone. Blogger Connell (multiplydelicious.com) has written one of the few Paleo dessert compilations on the market, though others are expected next year. The book starts off with an overview of the diet and some pantry staples and then highlights items that are available in stores by season. Connell features some obvious recipes, such as baked crumble-stuffed apples, as well as unexpected treats (fudgy chocolate coffee brownies, vanilla coconut ice cream, lemon bars, and dark chocolate pots de crème with roasted cherries).
Verdict A great addition for any library whose clientele can’t get enough of Paleo or gluten-free cookbooks or who are just trying to make healthier choices."— Library Journal
