I used this book for an assisted living facility I worked at. Th diabetic residents loved the desserts I made from here. Also great for people on low carb diets or who just want to watch sugar intake.
This book uses no sugar, honey or artifical sweeteners. The sweetness comes entirely from the fruit themselves. A few of the recipes are:
orange blueberry cake
banana cloud tart
sesame fruit crackers
With this book, you really can have your cake and eat it too.
Some of the chapter titles are: Cakes & Coffee Cakes/ Cookies/ Dessert Bars/ Pastries, Crepes & Turnovers/ Pies & Tarts/ & more!
Sometimes cookbooks like this can be kind of "out there" as far as recipes are concerned. This book has down to home recipes like muffins, crepes, pastries, fruit fillings and syrups etc. Was very impressed with the book. I would highly recommend not just for diabetics but for anyone trying to cut down on the sugar intake in their diet.
A good resource, though a bit out of date now that Splenda is around.
This is an older copy (copyright 1982) with a slight stain on the cover and binding, but still in very good condition and highly usable in the kitchen. The recipes are fairly simple without a lot of hard-to-find ingredients. The main sweeteners suggested are fruit sauces and fruit pieces. A very good dessert cookbook for vegetarians and vegans.
