With Thanksgiving literally right around the corner you may now be at the point of frantic searching for dessert inspiration! If you have guests attending your holiday gathering with food intolerance’s and allergies you may be even more panicked than the rest. Well, worry no more my Beard and Bonnet friends, Attune Foods has you covered with the launch of their Supergrain Dessert Recipes E-book this week. I was so honored when Attune Foods asked me to be a part of this project, because they are a brand that is constantly in our pantry. In the past I have shared recipes here with you using Attune’s Crispy Brown Rice Cereal like breakfast bars, energy bars, and lunch box bars. So when they asked me to create a holiday-worthy dessert using their Erewhon Quinoa and Chia Supergrain cereal I was excited to break out of my cereal bar rut and try something new. I have been dreaming up cashew based dessert recipes for a while now from cheesecakes to truffles, literally all inspired by my friend Beth bringing over a truly decadent cashew “cheesecake” for our July 4th celebration. I don’t think that we have gone an entire week without some new cashew creation popping up on the table. Savory, sweet, it really doesn’t matter to us. This particular cashew creation pairs my favorite carrot cake raw bar as a crust with a bold ginger filling and crispy caramel Florentine cookies. I don’t know that you could get many more of my favorite flavors into one dish. I used the cereal in both the crust and the cookies; it lends a pleasant crunch that I just love. The best thing about this cake besides the flavors is that it utilizes the freezer instead of the oven which we all know is pretty much spoken for during the preparation of the holiday dinner.
Since it is Thanksgiving and the season of giving all the wonderful folks at Attune are giving you this e-book for FREE!!! Along with my recipe there are 4 other tasty gluten free dishes from other bloggers featuring Erewhon Supergrain cereals to get you through this holiday season. That’s a new dessert every week between Thanksgiving and Christmas! Holiday party? You’re set. Dirty Santa at the office? Got ya covered. Holiday inspired snacks for little lunchboxes, you bet this book has those too.
