I have been cooking all day with Elana Amsterdam’s The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook for a good four months now. This has enabled me to perfect my skills in supplementing almond flour for the all-too-common GF flour mixtures and to try the delicious assortment of recipes she offers. Cooking with almond flour is quick and actually very easy, and it’s more nutritious, contains “good fats,” and has more minerals.
Elana’s book offers 95 recipes for delicious breakfasts, entrees, and baked goods with a host of full-page full-color pictures. The pictures speak for themselves.
Besides offering wholesome recipes, Elana’s healthy holistic lifestyle, which she already maintained before being diagnosed celiac, brings forth low-sugar recipes. I personally found the majority of dishes I’ve tried to have a healthy taste and smooth texture and were reminiscent of dishes I was eating before I was diagnosed with celiac disease. The sesame crackers are out-of-this-world and the marshmallow frosting made with agave and egg whites is an unusual fluffy cloud of yum to top any cake.
Enter the Gluten-Free Giveaway: Elana Amsterdam is generously donating 3 of her the GLUTEN-FREE ALMOND FLOUR cookbooks! Deadline: April 1 – 17th.
Elana found the majority of gluten-free dishes to be overly sweetened and very high-glycemic, which could wreak havoc on one’s blood sugar. With a love for cooking, a determination not to make separate dishes at her family meals, Elena searched for healthy, delicious alternatives. She was introduced to almond flour through well-informed gluten-free people on the internet, which was to be the answer to her quest.
Three years later after testing many recipes to success she had so many requests and inquiries she launched her blog to be able to share health tips and recipes.
This cookbook is given a thumbs up and is VERY HIGHLY recommended by me.
