How many of Louise Keats’ Thermomix desserts are suitable for dietary requirements and allergies? In her Sweet Nourish cookbook, Louise shares some great tips on adapting recipes for dietary needs and every recipe includes allergy/dietary symbols. You’ll find 41 nut-free and 39 egg-free options, 20 dairy-free and 38 gluten-free recipes, plus 77 vegetarian, 12 vegan and 9 raw treats too.
We love Louise, and we love her philosophy on eating nutritious food but not giving up your favourite treats – not when you can easily create your own delicious desserts and cakes from scratch in your Thermomix. There’s goodness and yumminess in generous serves here!
Simple chocolate hazelnut cake
This is Louise’s all-time favourite chocolate cake. So easy and delicious, it’s easy to see why. “It’s affectionately known as Chillax Cake in my house, because the first time my son tried it he closed his eyes, flopped onto the floor with an enormous smile and declared that it made him feel ‘just so relaxed, Mummy!’ I have to agree, there is something deeply comforting about taking a break over a proper piece of chocolate cake.” View the Simple chocolate hazelnut cake recipe on Cookidoo.
It can be tricky getting recipes for gluten-free scones just right, and Louise was determined to include a recipe in this book that did them proud. “The quinoa and millet flours add some grain variety and a lovely nutty flavor to the brown rice base. The wonderful thing about your Thermomix® is you can mill all your own flours from scratch.” View the Wholegrain scones recipe on Cookidoo.
Baked pumpkin doughnuts
These baked pumpkin doughnuts are an ideal indulgence. Dusted with cinnamon and perfectly tender, they’re just as good (if not better) than their deep-fried cousins. And they bake perfectly evenly in the Thermomix Rose Gold doughnut tin. View the Baked pumpkin doughnut recipe on Cookidoo.
