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.

  4. 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. I tend to stay away from flour baking now but these books could change all that!

  7. 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.

  8. I wanted to try to bake more gluten free stuff, so these books will be really helpful.

  9. 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!

  10. I “liked” Averie Cooks on facebook! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  11. Everything I make is gluten free, but I like to make real sustemances cinnamon rolls for my hubby to take to work for breakfast, instead of him eating cold cereal.

  12. That peanut butter banana bread looks amazing! That is going to be a must do! I feel like gluten free baking has gotten so much easier now that companies are more aware of it. Way more products then there use to be!

  13. I tweeted! @accidentlydlish
