Guilt-Free Desserts (by Kelley Herring) - REVIEW

Is it possible to have your cake and eat it too?
(i.e. eat pudding - or dessert as they say in North America)
Kelly Herring thinks so - and her book Guilt Free Desserts claims to be able to show you the (slim) way through tables groaning with browning, vanilla cupcakes (with chocolate buttercream), pumpkin pie, crème brulée etc. etc.
In fact she says she can show you how to turn any dream dessert into a healthy 'fat-burning version' that will make you leaner instead of fatter!
But aren't these yummy sweet treats filled with sugar, refined carbohydrates, fats and calories?
The devil, in fact?
Forget it, she says. 'Relax with a piece of New York cheesecake topped with raspberry sauce or 'Satisfy your cravings with a warm slice of cinnamon apple crisp.'
You get the picture.
And not only this - the desserts are apparently good for you too!
And this is not the world of low-fat-but-packed-with sugar desserts, or even nasty-tasting artificial sweeteners.
No longer to you have to 'choose between your health and the pleasure of decadent sweets!'
Wow.
So how does she do it?
It's all down to the latest in nutritional science, apparently.
And the potential indulgence extends to the 'toasty, fluffy and flaky goodness of breads crackers pizza crust biscuits bagels.'
Ms Herring took her favorite decadent-but-bad-for-you recipes and removed every ingredient that was unnatural or refined.
Was there anything left? I hear you say.
She then substituted the 'bad' ingredients with proteins, healthy fats and fiber.
'Metabolic power ingredients,' apparently - which help keep your blood sugar stable, and even, 'stoke your bodys fat-burning furnace!'
The recipes were given a, 'total health makeover, while keeping all the moisture, taste and decadent sweetness!'
So what are the magic ingredients? 
The website doesn't say, not surprisingly you have to buy the book to find that out.
They are, 'the latest natural sweeteners,'
'Sweet synergy,' in fact.
There is also an, 'amazing fiber' which adds 'cotton-candy' sweetness and creamy feel.
Secret canned ingredients, natural gums, sugar alcohols - there are lots of tantalizing hints.
Plus twelve ingredients to bind your books without eggs.
The only problem with all this is that I could not find one independent review of the book or the recipes.
No one is saying what the desserts taste like!
Which is frustrating after all that mouthwatering prose and pictures of luscious delicacies.
Even reviews of the book contained no customer comments or feedback.
'If there is no review yet from our users, it could be possible that this product is very new. If you have experience with the products by Kelley Herring, you could contribute to this community by leaving an honest comment,' said one (slightly desperate sounding) reviewer.
There were some fans amongst the diabetics and gluten-free communities - and the book has many recipes included in it which satisfy both of these dietary needs.
'In our opinion Guilt Free Desserts is a great book for those wanting to learn more about healthy desserts while still satisfying those sweet cravings,' said one website.
And I did find information elsewhere about the so-called magic ingredients. 
One of these is coconut flour (the highest amount of fiber of any flour) and coconut oil, which has great digestive benefits.
But whether this makes a good brownie... we just don't know.
The other product is Inulin, a sweet-tasting fiber derived from a wide variety of foods, including agave, garlic, and artichokes. 
Inulin has no effect on blood sugar levels and is a prebioltic.
Plus its, 'extraordinary chemical structure gives it not only a sweet taste, but a creamy, fat-like texture too.'
So this could be the 'amazing fiber' which can be used to replace both sugar and fat in foods.
Available at health food stores - check it out online.
And if you manage to make that guilt-free, healthy chocolate cake, let us know!
