Baking with Agave Nectar

Over 100 Recipes Using Nature’s Ultimate Sweetener


From the publisher

Even before its health benefits were being touted on Oprah’s daytime show, agave nectar was finding fans among dessert lovers seeking to reduce or eliminate processed sugar in their diets. In Baking with Agave Nectar, natural-foods chef Ania Catalano shows how to creatively integrate this up-and-coming natural sugar substitute into every sweet tooth’s repertoire through a variety of delectable recipes.

From breakfast goodies (Pumpkin Muffins, Stuffed French Toast) to cookies (Chewy Double Chocolate Meringue) to desserts (Bread Pudding Soufflés with Bourbon Sauce, Pear Frangipane Tart), Catalano makes agave nectar accessible and appealing to health-conscious bakers of all levels.

I have picked up this book and put it down more times than I can count. I want to cook from it, I have agave syrup, but each and every recipe seems to use obscure ingredients I don’t have--sprouted spelt flour, almond meal, agar flakes, barley flour.
