I won this book in a GoodReads FirstReads giveaway.

This was definitely not what I was expecting when I had entered this giveaway. Some of the recipes look interesting, like the Chocolate & Banana Smoothie, the Chocolate-coated Brazils, but a lot of them feature ingredients that are just not my cup of tea. Organic food lovers will enjoy this book. ( )

Raw Chocolate Treats: Healthy Recipes for the Chocolate Lover is a beautiful cookbook by Jessica Fenton. One thing that you need to know at the beginning is that so many of the recipes require a dehydrator power blender. I have a powder blender but not a dehydrator. That information was not in the blurb about this book. I am also waiting for some tests to come back which may indicate that I have to cut down on magnesium and therefore limit raw chocolate!

The book is very well organized and there are lovely photos of the tempting but healthier chocolate recipes. The author gives a short history of the history of raw chocolate, then she goes into the health benefits. I have diabetes, type II so I was very interested in that. There is an informative list of ingredient in the recipes and when to avoid eating raw chocolate. She also has a section devoted to the equipment you need and a way to substitute your oven for a dehydrator however there are drawbacks to that. She also has a skill level post for each recipe. The recipes ranges from drinks and shakes, to truffles, caramels, tortes, cookies and ice cream sandwiches. The instructions are clear and easy to follow.

It is a great cookbook for people who love chocolate and want to eat healthier.

I received this book from the publishers as a win from FirstReads but that in no way influenced my thoughts or feelings in this review. ( )
