Blogger Conners ( takes a flexible approach to gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free cooking; some recipes are vegan, some are paleo, and some even include clarified butter (ghee) when alternatives will not create the right flavor or texture. The useful introduction explains the author’s approach, followed by a brief section on pantry staples and helpful kitchen equipment. Home chefs will need an impressive array of nuts, nonwheat flours, and coconut products to create items in this collection. Sections are organized into breakfast; cakes, cupcakes, and cheesecakes; pies, tarts, and crumbles; cookies; brownies and bars; candies and confections; and sauces and nut butters. Recipes are clearly written with plenty of tips for variations, with subheadings for each recipe providing information for dairy-free, grain-free, paleo, vegan, or gluten-free options.
VERDICT A great choice for health-conscious bakers interested in exploring flavors beyond the nut-and-chocolate staples prevalent in gluten-free and vegan baking.
