Guilt-Free Desserts had me at guilt free desserts. I mean, can you go wrong with having delicious treats to enjoy that are actually guilt-free? And I’m not talking about eating treats and not feeling bad about it because you deserve it and self-love, blah blah, blah. I’m talking about eating desserts and not feeling guilty because there are all natural, diabetic-safe and gluten-free. Yes, you read that right! Deliciousness doesn’t have to be bad for you. In fact, this mouth-watering guide and cookbook to eating desserts may even be good for you. Shocking, right? Keep reading. You won’t be disappointed.
What is Guilt-Free Desserts About?
Guilt-Free Desserts is an online cookbook that gives you everything you need to satisfy your sweet tooth, tummy, and healthy needs. Not only that but the scrumptious recipes you cook up (and devour within seconds) can actually be good for you. It might sound like an oxymoron but just bear with me for a moment. What you’re about to learn from this collection of recipes and knowledge is going to leave you pleasantly surprised.
This online program is broken down into four different ebooks which are:
- Your Guide to Better Baking
- The Recipes
- Awesome Appetizers
- Copycat Girl Scout Cookies
I will explain these further on but basically, with all of these eBooks combined, you receive 50 delicious dessert recipes that are all-natural, diabetic-safe and gluten-free. Add in the recipes from the Awesome Appetizers cookbook, and you have even more!
You’re probably still wondering how desserts could ever possibly be good for you. After all, the health and fitness industry has convinced us that treating our sweet tooth is what hinders our weight loss progress. However, Guilt-Free Desserts doesn’t just provide you with a ton of incredibly scrumptious – and healthy dessert recipes to cook up. Instead, it also gives you all the information you need to learn how to eat the treats and savor the flavors you love, without jeopardizing your health.
The ‘Your Guide to Better Baking’ actually has pages and pages worth of valuable information that teach you everything from the sour side of Splenda to sugar alcohols and what they do to your body, the importance of organics, fat replacers, healthy fats for baking – the list goes on. So, to say Guilt-Free Desserts is just a cookbook would be a wild understatement. It’s an instructional guide to eating what you want, whenever you want simply by choosing the right ingredients.
This is precisely what separates this dessert cookbook from all the rest. Not only do you have more recipes than you could ever dream of, but you’re also provided with the information needed to switch up your very own recipes. Perhaps you have your grandma’s collection of secret recipes and want to enjoy them. Now you can because you know what steps needed to be done to keep the flavor the same while also eliminating the ingredients that aren’t good for you.
The best thing? You don’t need to find a spot to cram these cookbooks into your kitchen either. They’re all online, so all you have to do is download them onto the tech device of your choice, such as a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. I highly recommend downloading it onto your tablet or smartphone so you can easily take the recipes (and valuable information) with you wherever you go and wherever you bake. After all, a cookbook on the computer in the basement won’t do much good for you when you’re in the kitchen.
Now, if you’re still skeptical of the idea that healthy desserts can taste good, you’ll be happy to know that Guilt-Free Desserts comes with a 60 Day Money Back Guarantee. So, that’s more than enough time to read through the comprehensive guide about baking ingredients and start cooking up some goodies in your very own home. If you decide that you’d rather have the same flavor with all the unhealthy elements, then you can choose to have a refund. However, you’ll likely decide to get the best of both worlds – flavor and health – because who wouldn’t?
