Popular food blogger Elana Amsterdam will present her new book, The Gluten-free Almond Flour Cookbook. In the book, she offers ninety-nine family-friendly classics--from Pancake to Eggplant Parmesan to Chocolate Cake--that feature her gluten-free ingredient of choice, almond flour. Among them are choices for a quick breakfast treat, a comfort food entree, or a showstopping dessert. Because these recipes are low glycemic, low in cholesterol and dairy, and high in protein and fiber, they are also ideal for people with diabetes, obesity, and high cholesterol. About these recipes, cookbook expert Deborah Madison says, "they are truly wholesome and delicious."
So whether you’re looking for a quick breakfast treat, a comfort food entrée, or a showstopping dessert, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook proves that gluten-free cooking can mean healthy eating for everyone.
Elana Amsterdam developed these recipes when she and her son were both diagnosed with celiac disease. She lives with her family in Boulder, Colorado. Her parents, Ezra and Beulah Amsterdam, are residents of Davis.
