CHEESECAKE AND PIE RAW OF OIL FRUIT AND OIL SEEDS

Sweet or savory, these cake bases are simple, nutritious, delicious and without any sense of guilt …

WHAT OIL SEEDS AND FRUITS CAN WE USE FOR OUR DOUGHS?

NUTS: ◇ cashews ◇ peanuts (they actually belong to the legume family) ◇ almonds ◇ bitter almonds ◇ walnuts ◇ Brazil nuts ◇ macadamia nuts ◇ pecans ◇ hazelnuts ◇ pine nuts ◇ pistachios ◇
OIL SEEDS:  ◇ hemp ◇ sunflower ◇ poppy ◇ sesame ◇ pumpkin ◇

WHY REPLACE PIES OR BISCUIT BASES WITH THESE NEW DOUGHS?

    • To combine pleasure with awareness by choosing real, healthy ingredients, without refined sugars, without trans fats, and for those who need them without gluten, eggs and dairy products.
    • Because there are not only puff pastries, shortbread, brisée and biscuit and butter bases to make excellent pies and cheesecake.
    • To choose the quality of the ingredients that should always be fresh and possibly from organic farming.
    • In order to obtain the maximum benefits from the nutritional properties of seeds and oily fruits, choosing them: not toasted, not salted and free of added sugars.
    • To control the amount of sugar and fat present, always excessive in the products that are on the market even at artisan pastry shops. Not all sugars or sugary foods we add to our recipes are the same. In raw-sweet cakes, dried fruit is generally used as a sweetener. The sugary values of dried fruit also change significantly from fruit to fruit, apples, pears, plums, berries and apricots have a low glycemic load, while pineapples, raisin dates have much higher glycemic load values.
