I’m doing something a little different today with a review of an e-cookbook by a fellow whole foods blogger and holistic nutritionist Jesse Lane from jesselanewellness.com.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jesse at an event last year and she was so friendly with a radiant smile and all of the beautiful effects of a healthy lifestyle.
I took at the opportunity to check out her e-cookbook, Healthy Dairy Free Desserts, and try out a few of the recipes. Of course, I jumped at the chance to make cookies and Jesse was gracious enough to let me share one of the cookie recipes with you guys! I told you she was nice. 😉
This recipe is for Almond Coconut Chip Cookies. Gluten Free, Dairy Free and totally delicious. It was nice to just follow along with a recipe for a change considering I’m usually developing and adapting my own.
I’m wholeheartedly recommending Jesse’s Healthy Dairy Free Desserts e-cookbook. We all like to indulge and Jesse’s book shows us how to do so in a healthful and allergen friendly way. It’s also nice to support small businesses and real individuals like Jesse, right? Right.
Try out the recipe below and click this link to purchase the e-book.
