Eat Dessert for Breakfast


OK, for those of you with a sneaky sweet tooth like me, you’re going to fall in love with Nicole Joy‘s recipe book Eat Dessert for Breakfast.  I have been madly cooking as much as I can from her book and I’ve had a tough time taste testing all her extraordinary and nourishing raw desserts (not!).

She’s really hit a chord with me … I’m one of those people torn between my love affair with sweet food and my passion for serving sugar free food as often as possible.  So her God-send cookbook showcases beautifully an array of tempting treats that are sugar free, dairy free and wheat free!!  Yes it is possible!

On Easter Day I served up a raw chocolate and salted-caramel pecan tart.  I figured we all had easy access to plenty of sugar-laden Easter eggs and so I appreciated a dessert I could feel good about.  The added bonus of her desserts is that they can be made days in advance and kept in the freezer.  Perfect for busy mums and people who love to impress.  I am also guilty of keeping a small stock of individually cut slices ready to defrost when the need for a little something post 8pm arises.  Is that just me or can you relate??

Anyway, enjoy browsing her site and check her out on instagram and pinterest (nicolejoyinspire) … last night she posted a gorgeously (is that a word?  it is now …) decadent Double Choc & Raspberry Swirl Tart – I think I’ll have to make that tonight.   And what a bonus that we can call her our own … she hails from Queensland.  Now, to get myself invited to her place for dinner … or just dessert!!

Enjoy your day with grace or gusto … or both!

  2. WOW this looks amazing. It’s 8:05pm right now and I could certainly have a slice of this with a cup of tea to wind down. I love the idea of sugar free, raw, wholesome recipes. YUM. Thank you
