Gluten and Allergen-Free Baking Cookbooks Giveaway

I recently received copies of The Essential Gluten-Free Baking Guide Part 1 and The Essential Gluten-Free Baking Guide Part 2

The books are co-authored by Iris Higgins of The Daily Dietribe and Brittany Angell of Real Sustenance

The books are a one-stop-shop for gluten and allergen free baking.

Each of six chapters are dedicated to a specific flour. There are 50+ diverse recipes that are packed with information for successful gluten free baking.

From delicious Stove Top English Muffins, Cheesy Skillet biscuits, and Chocolate Babka Bread to Fig Newtons, Graham Crackers and Funnel Cake, these books are packed with great recipes.

Learn how to make these unique and hard to find allergen free recipes, how to best substitute each flour, and understand the basics of baking without eggs, corn, soy, dairy.

Learn the ins and outs of various unrefined sugars and how to exchange them.

Also included are baking tips from some of today’s leading gluten free experts including Elana Amsterdam and Ricki Hellar, among.

Here examples of the authors’ gluten free recipes:

Banana Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Deep Dish Cinnamon Roll Cookies

A few of my own favorite gluten free recipes include:

Marshmallow Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Pillowtop Bars (GF)

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies (GF with Vegan adaptation)

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars (Vegan, GF, SoyFree)

Peanut Butter Banana Bread (Vegan, GF, SoyFree)

Caramel and Chocolate Gooey Bars (GF with Vegan adaptation)

Gluten and allergen-free baking can be tricky and can pose challenges, but I think these books will help demystify it and will help get you on the right track.

One lucky reader will win a copy of this set of two books.

    I think my favorite thing is a tie between your chocolate chip cookie dough balls and these paleo pumpkin muffins I make. I swear they are more like pie filling in a muffin liner than an actual muffin! And I would love these cookbooks because I get really lost when it comes to all these alternative flours!

    The most challenging part of gluten free baking, for me at least, is getting a really great, chewy, springy bread texture! Seems so tough with both yeast & quick breads! One day I’ll find the perfect formula even if it kills me, haha! =)

    The biggest challenge I face with gluten-free or allergen-free baking is adapting recipes to a vegan diet also and still making them taste good. I see that these books have vegan adaptation, which I am excited to try! Everything looks delicious!

    The best thing I make that are gluten free, vegan AND raw are your various ball recipes. Bring them everywhere, they travel well, everyone loves them, they make a quick snack for my kid, they are relatively mess free, way to make…I just love them. But I could definitely use more ideas! Thanks for the giveaway :)

    The biggest challenge for me as I’m learning to be gluten free is my limited knowledge. I want to make sure that I’m doing this right. (that’s why a cookbook would be helpful to me!)

    When I am craving a dessert that will not upset my tummy and will keep from going out and buying an expensive pre-made GF item, I pull out 5 ingredients from my pantry and some eggs to whip up these coffee almond cookies: http://www.healthygreenkitchen.com/gluten-free-coffee-almond-cookies.html. Instead of freeze-dried organic coffee, I use ground organic espresso that lives in my freezer for such occasions (oh and caffeinating my early mornings). So easy and soooooo delicious!!

    I’ve lived Dairy Free for almost two years and also try to do Gluten free when I can. It’s very difficult baking for sure. My most popular dessert is dairy and gluten free, Vegan Creme Brulee. http://cannedtime.blogspot.com/2012/03/vegan-creme-brulee.html I tend to stay away from flour baking now but these books could change all that!

    The biggest challenge I face with gluten-free baking is that my son is off of all sweeteners right now due to a candida cleanse so I can’t bake anything with honey in it for now :( I have trouble finding recipes that are grain-free/gluten-free & sweetener-free (and fruit-free!). Hopefully, in a month we’ll be able to re-introduce them in his diet & gluten-free baking will be easier again.

    I love re-working all of our old family favorites into gluten-free versions: peanut butter blossom cookies, sugar cookie cutouts, cinnamon rolls, a Finnish oven pancake called krupsuua, and the ubiquitous banana bread and pumpkin muffins. I also made a lemon matcha marble poundcake that was gluten-free and a huge hit. I now have to re-work it to be dairy and egg-free, but it is worth the challenge! I make them for my family but I don’t really eat baked goods any more. Instead I really love some kabocha squash or sweet potato roasted with coconut oil. That’s a great daily treat for me!

    I have a dear sister who is allergic to SOY, thus everything I make has no soy in it (unless I make it just for myself…I LOVE my tofu…) so I dont think I have a best.
