Ancient Heritage Cookies: Gluten-Free, Whole-Grain, and Nut-Flour Treats
(Pelican Publishing Company, Inc.)
Deeply rooted in ancient civilizations, and part of mankind’s history for thousands of years, ancient and whole-grain flours have been rediscovered as healthier alternatives to all-purpose flour. CHNY member Luanne Kohnke has written a book that book features 50 recipes focusing exclusively on whole-grain, ancient-grain, and nut flours. Each chapter includes a brief history of the featured grain and a beautifully illustrated map. Kohnke uses whole grains from around the world—including oats, barley, and cornmeal—and creates recipes to satisfy the most discerning sweet tooth. Thirteen of the recipes are gluten-free and two are vegan. Easy recipes for gluten-free Peanut Butter Sandwiches, moist Double-Chocolate Fruit and Nut Brownies, and chewy vegan Maple Almond-Butter Cookies are featured. Lush photos from acclaimed photographer John Uher accompany each recipe.
