It's a Pleasure
Sweet treats without gluten, dairy, and refined sugar.
It's a Pleasure will transform the way you think about sweets. For starters, "baked goods" don't need to be baked-and you can make an amazing range of delicious cakes, pies, candies, ice creams, and cookies without a teaspoon of wheat flour or a sprinkle of white sugar. Finnish author Virpi Mikkonen's secret is less what she leaves out of her desserts and more about the innovative array of wholesome and flavorful ingredients the includes, from coconut milk to almond flour to pureed dates and figs.
Born out of desire to offer herself treats that left her feeling light, healthy, and satisfied, Virpi has experimented, tinkered, and taste-tested her way to a glorious array of yummy desserts minus the gluten, refined sugar, and dairy (if you like). Most are entirely plant based, many are prepared in the freezer rather than the oven, and all are surprisingly simple and fun to make. Once you try her (raw!) Blueberry Dream Cake, Peanut Toffee Chocolates, or Cardamom Vanilla Doughnuts, you may never look back.
