Low Glycemic, Gluten-Free Recipes Featuring Almond Flour

Almond flour or meal is low-glycemic, nutrient-dense, easy to use, and readily available. And you can even grind your own almond flour from blanched whole almonds if you have a countertop grain mill at home. Almond flour is also naturally gluten-free – provided that it hasn't been cross-contaminated – and a popular choice among home cooks and bakers who are looking for gluten-free alternatives to wheat flour or other gluten-containing flours. In her debut cookbook The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, wellness expert and gluten-free guru Elana Amsterdam issues a tempting invitation to gluten-free cooks and bakers who have longed for a cookbook dedicated to almond flour recipes.

A Must-Have: The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook by Elana Amsterdam

For the millions of people suffering from some form of gluten intolerance, gluten-free cookbooks can be a real help and source of inspiration in the kitchen. Unfortunately, however, many of these cookbooks feature expensive and obscure gluten-free flour mixes. In her debut cookbook, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, recipe developer Elena Amsterdam delivers 99 mouthwatering gluten-free recipes that use simple almond flour instead of pre-packaged gluten-free flour mixes. Her focus is on family-friendly classics – such as pancakes, muffins, cakes, pies and burgers – which she then adapts to gluten-free almond flour. Although there are also entrees in this cookbook, much of the book is dedicated to gluten-free baking and sweet treats.

Who Should Get This Cookbook?

The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook is a great option if you are looking for easy, low-glycemic gluten-free recipes that use simple ingredients such as almond flour.

With simple recipes and gorgeous full-color photographs peppered throughout, this book also makes an attractive gift, not only for gluten-intolerant home cooks and baking enthusiasts but for anyone interested in creating filling, low glycemic desserts, breakfast dishes and meals that are high in protein and fiber and low in carbs, dairy and saturated fats.

What Else You Should Know

In her gluten-free almond flour recipes, Amsterdam uses flour made of blanched almonds (almonds that have had their skin removed) and does recommend using unblanched almond flour for her recipes. What's more, she recommends selecting brands like Honeyville (available through Amazon here) or Lucy's Kitchen Shop rather than the popular Bob's Red Mill almond flour which has a rather coarse texture and is not well suited for her recipes.
