Laura Fuentes has created a cookbook filled with sweets and treats that are a bit more healthy than regular sugar and fat laden treats. Clean Treats for Everyone: Healthy Desserts and Snacks Made with Simple, Real Food Ingredients is full of tempting treats that will appeal to almost everyone, especially those on special diets such as gluten free, dairy free, etc. There are beautiful photographs of most of the treats, which is helpful, especially when these are not your regular treats. Because they don’t contain regular wheat flour, the finished products are a bit different looking. However, they are tasty when they aren’t being compared to their wheat flour counterparts. Many of the recipes are just remade versions of classics, such as chocolate chip cookies, lemon bars, and Snickerdoodles sans the wheat flour and unhealthy ingredients.

The recipes are written in standard form and are easy to follow. Most of the ingredients can be obtained at regular grocery stores, and are for the most part healthier. These treats are not sugar-laden and rely on honey and other sweet ingredients.

While this is a perfect cookbook for those on the gluten-free bandwagon, and for those who actually need to cut gluten from their diets for viable health reasons, it should be remembered that the treats don’t compare to what most of us are used to, and while some are tasty, don’t measure up to what most of us want to eat.
