A game-changing collection of spectacular baking recipes that harness the power of sourdough starters and adaptogenic herbs to promote gut health and wellness. In this revolutionary new baking book, Melissa Sharp, the owner of Oxford's hit bake shop Modern Baker, reveals the secrets behind their positively-good-for-you breads, buns, cakes, cookies, and more. These aren't your typical "healthy" treats, which are often disappointing and lacking in flavor. Instead, Melissa's recipes rely on high-quality, unprocessed ingredients and are focused on promoting gut health, now known to be a key factor in shaping our overall wellness. By baking with sourdough starters, reducing the amount of refined sugar in her recipes, and sprinkling superfoods throughout, Melissa has created treats you can actually feel good about eating--and they're as decadent as their traditional counterparts. Filled with gorgeous photography and more than 100 recipes for delectable breads and sweets, like Olive and Feta Sourdough Bread, Fig Upside-Down Cake with Lucuma, Golden Turmeric and Honey Cookies, and Maple Sugar and Blueberry Scones, Super Loaves and Simple Treats is the baking book health-conscious home bakers have been waiting for.
About the Author MELISSA SHARP is the owner of Modern Baker, an organic whole foods bakery focused on creating nourishing and delicious breads and desserts. After recovering from a serious illness through the combined efforts of traditional medicine, natural supplements, and probiotics, she discovered that eating healthily doesn't have to mean sacrificing great taste, and was inspired to launch a bakery that promotes these values. She founded Modern Baker in 2014, which has expanded to include a line of packaged breads and sourdough-only cakes sold at Selfridges.
