“Outstanding gluten-free goodies... this lovely cookbook, full of enticing photos, has my mouth watering.”
—DeliciousLiving Magazine: Blog
“The need is huge for cookbooks for celiacs on limited diets. They will welcome The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook when it arrives.”
“Flour Girl: Gluten-Free Almond Joy”
“Amsterdam’s recipes will carry you through the day, with pancakes for breakfast, pizza for lunch, and quiche for dinner. She takes classic recipes...and adapts them to almond flour, creating plenty of meal options.”
"We all need to pay attention to the food we eat, all of the time. For people with celiac disease, this is normally an even greater challenge--but not for Elana! Her healthful and flavorful recipes taste as good as they are good for you. Made with almond flour and high in protein and fiber, these dishes are sure to even please the gluten eaters in your family!"
—Alice Bast, President and Founder of the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA)
“For many people, normal food becomes off-limits when they find they have an allergy or condition, such as celiac disease. To wrestle new limitations into foods that are every bit as delicious and appealing (if not more so) is a coup to be celebrated. Having tried the chocolate chip cookies, I speak from experience when I say there is nothing lacking in these recipes. They are truly wholesome and delicious!”
—DEBORAH MADISON, Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone
“Elana has a tremendous gift for creating classic recipes using healthy ingredients. Her high-protein, gluten-free treats are incredibly tasty! I highly recommend this book if you are looking for good food that is also good for you.”
—DR. ROBERT ROUNTREE, Smart Medicine for a Healthier Child
“Local hero Elana Amsterdam (straight out of Boulder) offers dozens of wheatless recipes from chicken parmesan to chocolate cake, all of which call for gluten-free almond flour. Enough of the recipes will appeal to gluten-eaters to make this collection a great go-to resource for blended families and/or hosts cooking for gluten-intolerant guests. Readers with a sweet tooth are especially well-served here, but savory recipes like salmon burgers round out the roster.”
—The Denver Post, “Causing a STIR: Best Cookbooks of 2009”
“In her Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, the ingenious celiac Elana Amsterdam offers another possible approach, a sandwich bread made from finely milled almond flour (do not use Bob's Red Mill brand) and almond butter that is nutty and versatile. Amsterdam's recipes are refreshingly simple, as the almond flour reduces the need for the expensive and obscure mix of flours other gluten-free recipes require.... But the ground nut has other virtues, including high amounts of protein and vitamins and low glycemic impact. Amsterdam employs it in a range of dishes, from shortbread cookies and carrot cake to a savory tart with kale. Her snappy herbed crackers, which are a welcome change from commercial nut-thins and dry rice crisps, are equally easy to make and delicious.”
—The Philadelphia Inquirer, “Gluten-Free But Still Tasty”

Elana to the rescue! Her book is packed with awesome recipes, with all our allergens removed. Yay!
So far, I've made the Classic Drop Biscuits, (which were awesome, and made the best little grain-free sandwiches!) the Choc. Chip scones, (so yummy!), the Chicken Parmesan without the cheese (kids begged for more!), the Chocolate Cake - with "marshmallow" frosting (pictured on the cover), Very Vanilla Cupcakes (not too sweet, really tasty), and my very favourite of all, Elana's Chocolate Chip cookies.
Everything I've made has been gobbled up.
I highly recommend this! Even for the (egg-free, dairy-free!) chocolate chip cookie recipe alone, it's worth it.
Elana says you can not use Bob's Mill almond flour in her recipes and in many areas this is all that you can find, but I've learned a trick. When using either Bob's Mill or even almond meal (purchased from my local Bulk Food Store), I pulse it four or five times in my Secura nut grinder (purchased here at Amazon) to make it a little finer. A coffee grinder or even a food processor may work just as well.Read more ›
