For those who want all the benefits of chocolate without the downside—calories, fat, and sugar—Raw Chocolate Treats opens a new world of healthy enjoyment. In addition to the recipes, the book includes a wealth of resource material such as a section on health benefits, a guide to ingredients, and a discussion of equipment.

The recipes contain only trace amounts of caffeine and are suitable for vegetarians, vegans, raw foodists, people with diabetes or hyperglycemia, and those on a low-calorie, gluten- and sugar-free diet.
