GIVEAWAY: Elana Amsterdam's Almond Flour Cookbooks


I've been a fan of Elana Amsterdam of Elana's Pantry pretty much since her blog first started. She's genuine, kind, down-to-earth, and a darn good cook. 

As soon as Elana's first cookbook went on sale, I pre-ordered! I couldn't wait to get a copy of Elana's book in my hands. 

You see almond flour is good to me. It's nice to my body. When gluten, sugars, carbohydrates ("good" & bad), soy protein, artificial flavorings & colorings, caffeine, pork... when all those things (and others) affect my body negatively it's nice to know there is a safe & delicious alternative such as almond flour.

Elana gets this. She not only believes in eating mostly healthy, whole, real foods...  but she gets that carbohydrates can play a major role in overall health... especially for people on a gluten free diet. 

Elana's first book, "The Almond Flour Cookbook" is one of the most well used cookbooks in my kitchen. I can't tell you how many pages are dog-eared, splatter-stained, and written all over with my favorite blue pen, sharing my own notes along the way. 

Some of my favorite recipes from Elana's "The Almond Flour Cookbook
  • Savory Vegetable Quiche, pg. 61
  • Herbed Turkey Loaf (seriously the BEST "meatloaf" ever!!) pg. 47
  • Chocolate Chip Scones, pg. 18
  • Chicken Fingers, pg. 41
  • Salmon Dill Burgers, pg. 51
  • Pear Crisp - pg. 75
  • Chocolate Cake, pg. 84
  • Pizza Crust - pg. 82
And this is only a handful of the recipes I've tried! Seriously... Elana I cannot tell you how much I love you!

I could write paragraphs singing the praises of almond flour and why I think it's such a wonderful gluten free choice for baking... but if you just try a few of Elana's recipes you'll completely understand this too!

And here's how you can! I have two BRAND NEW copies of BOTH of Elana's cookbooks to give away! Her first cookbook, and her BRAND NEW 2nd cookbook, "Gluten Free Cupcakes."  Today (April 26th) is actually the release date for Elana's new book! (Congrats Elana!!) When her publisher contacted me to send me a review copy, I instead asked for a copy of each book so I could give them away. Because, as with Elana's first book -- I already pre-ordered my copy of Gluten Free Cupcakes

PLUS, as an added bonus, I'm including 4 cups of Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour in this giveaway so that you can ALSO try some of Elana's recipes with the almond flour she prefers! 





THE GIVEAWAY: THIS giveaway is now CLOSED. 
This giveaway includes a brand new copy of Elana Amsterdam's, "The Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook" AND a copy of her newly released cookbook, "Gluten Free Cupcakes" AND 4 cups of Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour.

  154. I am craving something summerish...It's pouring rain here and we could get more snow. So, I'm thinking the lime cupcakes would hit the spot! :)

  155. I haven't tried almond flour, but it sounds great. The books would be a big help. Thanks!

  160. I checked out the cookbook at Amazon.com and loved reading the intro. I loved the basic white cupcake recipe, which I would try first, just to try it out - as you can do lots with it, and my granddaughters would have fun decorating them. But next, I would go to the Spice cupcake section - my very favorite type of cakes - spice cakes and banana cakes - yum!

  180. Hi Carrie,
    What a fantastic contest!! I have been following Elana's blog since the Fall of 2009 when my digestive problems got real bad. I 'like' both of you on FB, am subscribed to both of your blogs, and shared this contest on my FB page. I went to Amazon to look at Elana's cupcake book, and pursued the index for all the recipes. I would make the creme filled chocolate cupcakes first. I saw a picture of them (on her blog) and they look divine. They are Hostess-esque, which were my childhood favorite. :) Adrienne adriennearo@gmail.com
