The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook
By Elana Amsterdam
When I was first diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and told that I should stop eating gluten, I didn’t even know what gluten was! After a lot of research on the subject and countless hours scowering blogs and websites for new recipes, I ended up with about 100 bookmarked pages from Elana’s website Elana’s Pantry.
Much like me, everything Elana makes is gluten-free and grain-free. She uses mostly natural sugars and a lot of her recipes are also dairy free. She has gorgeous photos and mouthwatering explanations of her recipes that make you want to reach for a fork to dig right in. Her blog, along with Comfy Belly, is what inspired me to create my blog.
I received her first cookbook as a Christmas gift and have loved using some of the recipes as a starting point for some of my own new recipes. I have a handful of favorites that I don’t touch because they are so delicious! Try the Cinnamon Apple Muffins on page 15, Savory Vegetable Quiche on page 61, Chocolate Cake on page 84, or S’Mores on page 120.
For Thanksgiving this year, I plan to use her Pumpkin Pie recipe on page 70 and her delicious Gingerbread Men recipe on page 108 as my crust.
