Review: Sweet Debbie's Organic Treats PLUS Homemade Hemp Seed Butter
And then I laughed again when she described the euphoria of tasting her fake caramel sauce for the first time because, as a celiac with dietary restrictions, I could totally relate. The fact is, baking is intimidating. Baking with allergy alternative ingredients? Intimidating times five. By stamping a bit of humor on every page and sharing the personal stories behind her recipes (lack of supplies + cookie craving = Quinoa Cranberry Cookies!), Debbie makes every baking adventure that much more fun!

After letting them cool (by tossing them in the freezer - impatient as always), I ground them in my coffee grinder. As I stared down at my bowl of fine brown granules, I'll admit to being cynical that slowly adding the oil would create anything but wet dust. Wrong! A lot of stirring and a smooth, slightly grainy bowl of nut-less nut butter was born. To make a slightly sweeter butter, I did add a bit of honey and cacao powder to Debbie's recipe. As I devour the spread on my smoothies and overnight quinoa flakes, though, my taste buds are sending thanks Debbie's way!
*** Debbie was kind enough to contact me and offer a free copy of her book in return for an honest review. I was not paid for this review, and all ideas and opinions within it are my own.
