Naturally Sweetened Treats
Naturally Sweetened Treats is the second in the Community Cookbook series hosted by Pat Robinson of Heal Thyself and Aubrey Griffin of Homegrown Healthy. Pat and Aubrey partnered to host their favorite real food bloggers’ “best of” recipes to share with you. Long before blogging and social networks, trading recipes has been a way to connect and transfer culture, nourishment, and love from the heart of the home (the kitchen) to others. Similarly, each blogger shared his or her best recipes for our recipe collection!
Don’t forget to check out the first and third in the Community Cookbook series: Winter Soups and Gluten-Free Snacks. These Community Cookbooks are also available as a bundle: Three Community Cookbooks Bundle.
Trying new ingredients and sharing recipes is fun. We share stories and real food recipes to help you to eat better. The cookbook captures the voices of our favorite bloggers and the recipes share their love of cooking real food with your family for your good health!
