I’m so excited to try Clean Sweets by Sasha! It’s about time we had some healthy desert options in the area. It would be great to see her sell to local restaurants so after a meal there could be a gluten free/dairy free/sugar free option to choose from on the menu. Can’t wait to try!

Doesn't one need a commercial kitchen to be able to sell food legally? In any case, I'm glad to know about this, and look forward to trying some of the offerings.

The jury is still very much out on whether coconut oil, with over 80% saturated fats, is healthier than butter. Some in the medical community consider it toxic, and health organizations in multiple countries advise against consuming it.

I am happy to learn about this. I am pleased she is using maple syrup (hopefully from the U.S.)
Just a note to readers in their home lives and restaurant visits to distinguish between pure maple syrup and “pancake” syrup (artificial, uggh).
Best of luck to Sasha. I will try her baked goods.

I'm so excited to see this recognition for Clean Sweets By Sasha. I've tried Sasha's thumbprint cookies, banana bread, and choco chip cookies and they're all amazing. Finally you can indulge in dessert while eating real food. And from everything I've read on Yelp, her cakes are over the top. You will not be disappointed!!
