Do whole grain flours intimidate you? Does amaranth flour sound intriguing but perhaps a little froufrou too? Do you love the vegan flax and millet muffins at your local coffee shop, but feel way too scared to attempt them on your own? Fears begone! You are now in the safe (albeit floury) hands of Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes, two vegan ladies who know their way around the oven-and barley flour too. Expect to see not an ounce of white flour, refined white sugar, or powdered egg replacer in this book. Instead, indulge in wholesome yeast breads, muffins, teacakes, pies, waffles, pancakes, and more, all featuring the delicious flavors naturally found in whole grain flours and natural sweeteners. All you need is a bowl, a spoon, and a little "can-do!" attitude to whip up treats like Tahini Lemon Scones, Spicy Cranberry Cornbread, and Whole Wheat Chocolate Raspberry Tart. With more than 100 recipes to choose from, the hardest thing you'll have to do is decide what to bake first! Your taste buds will love you, your friends will adore you, your waist will thank you, and the planet will be singing your praises with Whole Grain Vegan Baking. You're just a whisk away!
