Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook Give-Away!

This contest is now closed. Thank you to all who entered! Winners have been contacted, and the books are on their way! --steph

The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook came out this summer and it's superb. Written by Elana Amsterdam, this cookbook walks readers through the steps of baking with Almond Flour---a naturally gluten free flour which creates a moist, savory, buttery texture when used for baking.

And it rises! and it doesn't crumble! and you don't need binders such as xanthum gum! or different bags of potato starch! or rice flour!

This cookbook also explains how cooking with almond flour and with a sugar substitute (Elana recommends agave nectar) creates food low on the glycemic index----fantastic for those watching their sugar intake, or for those who really should but don't because they think the food is going to turnout tasteless.

This is some good food. REALLY good food.

The kids and I are going to make gingerbread men this weekend, and are using Elana's recipe. We're excited!

Elana has generously offered to give away 2! of her beautiful cookbooks to my readers.

To enter for a chance to win, please leave a comment with a valid email address (DOT COM code is fine, of course, and I'm not going to share your email with anyone, and I will delete all comments when the contest has run it's course.) and share what you would like to make from Elana's book.

perfect pie crust?
cinnamon coffee cake?
gingerbread men?
