Hello friends! I have a nice little giveaway for ya today. Huge thanks for reading my little blog and subscribing!
I’ve been a huge fan of cooking with almond flour for many years. It took some trial and error, but I’ve figured out how to “healthy-fy” a recipe by swapping a few ingredients: almond flour for wheat flour, honey for sugar, coconut oil for vegetable oil.
If you have gluten intolerance or sensitivity, almond flour is truly God-sent. You can still enjoy the desserts without sacrificing the flavor.
Although in our family we don’t have gluten allergies, I still choose to avoid gluten whenever possible. I took some time to educating myself with several polar views on gluten, I do not feel it is such a villain as it’s made to be. I just feel better and less bloated when I avoid it. So there you go. Almond flour to the rescue!
Some of my favorite desserts like these Blueberry Muffins are clean and guilt-free recipes. My family goes crazy for them! Luckily these desserts are really so fulfilling that I don’t feel the need to stuff my face like I do with some of the more rich creamy sugar loaded options. Win!
Until now, my almond flour adventures in the kitchen were limited to baked goods and desserts. Different variations of cookies and muffins would magically appear out of the stove and just as magically disappear within a day or two.
Lately, I started to feel like it was time to up my game and ordered The Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook by none other than the gluten free queen Elana Amsterdam. I placed my order on Amazon and dutifully stocked the UPS guy for the next two days.
Well let me tell ya. It was worth the wait (all 2 days). This book is AMAZING! There are simple and easy recipes for breakfast, entrees, breads, muffins, cookies, cupcakes, pies, lots of pictures, nutrition tips and meal ideas. I loved that most recipes had very few ingredients.
I immediately picked out a recipe and got to work. The first on the list was this Herbed Turkey Loaf which exceeded all my expectations. My son just requested Chocolate Chip Cookies, so I think I’m going to try that next:
How amazing do these look?
