One of my dear friends, Diana Bauman from My Humble Kitchen, just released a wonderful holiday cookbook – *Nourishing Cookies for a Healthy Holiday – featuring her family’s favorite whole-grain, naturally-sweetened cookie recipes.
And although I’m living a grain-free life, as I know many of you are as well, I just had to share this gorgeous book for two simple reasons …
First, for those of you here who aren’t grain-free and are either just starting out on your real food journey, or are tried-n-true veterans who are looking for some amazing delicious whole-grain holiday cookie recipes that taste great without compromising good nutrition, this book is for you! Second, many of you who are grain-free may have friends and family who are not. Guess what? Diana’s book is a beautiful way to share how holiday baking can be delicious, fun and nourishing.
In typical fashion, I’ve also talked Diana into allowing me to share a fabulous recipe with you – a traditional honey-sweetened Spanish candy called Turrón – as a small taste of the delicious surprises that await you and your family in this beautiful whole-grain holiday baking book. Of course, I must admit that I hand-picked this particular recipe not only because it’s one of the two grain-free recipes in the book, but moreso because it represents a special family tradition for Diana and her family. And I believe building and celebrating family traditions is one of the cornerstones of creating special holiday memories that last a lifetime!
P.S. Join Diana for an amazing 25 Day Grace Filled Journey to Real Food! It all starts in January!! And I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the incredible journey she has in store for us!
