Why did you choose this product?
Has many recipes for sweets which are my favorite foods. Needing to cut sugar and refined grains, I bought this book hoping to still make some of my favorites but still having a good taste. It doesn't disappoint. Uses natural sweeteners, ie, honey, dates, coconut sugar, etc., having lower glycemic index. Also, gives replacements for dairy, eggs. Most of the ingredients one would have on hand, except for almond and coconut flours. I have used other GF flours for some of the recipes with good success....

Discover the Wonders of (Naturally Gluten-Free) Coconut Flour!
Coconut flour is quickly becoming one of the most popular flours on the market today, and deservedly so. It contains no gluten and no grain, and is low in digestive carbs and high in fiber, making it a favorite among Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, and low-glycemic dieters. In addition to what coconut flour doesn't contain, what it does contain is just as impressive. Not only is it packed with protein, but it also contains four times more fiber than oat bran; just a few tablespoons provides you with between 25 to 50 percent of your daily required intake! Unlike gluten-free flour mixes, however, coconut flour may be used on its own and contains only one, all-natural ingredient coconut. Yet its pure, slightly sweet taste is subtle enough that even coconut haters won't be able to detect it, and it lends itself perfectly to baked goods, creating results far superior to many other gluten-free treats. One bite of light and moist coconut flour bread is sure to have you addicted!
Inside, you'll learn how to bake wonderful muffins, cakes, cookies, savory bites and more with this amazing flour, which is now easy to find in most grocery stores and online. No fillers, additives, and gums here - just simple, all-natural treats such as:
* Cheddar Biscuits * Skillet Cornbread * Chocolate Chip Scones * Spiced Pumpkin Bread * Carrot Cake * Chocolate Layer Cake * Red Velvet Cupcakes * Pesto Flatbread Pizza * Garlic-Cauliflower Breadsticks * Spinach Mushroom Feta Crepes * Coconut Shrimp with Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce
Author and blogger Erica Kerwien (www.comfybelly.com) will walk you through everything you need to know for using the flour with great results. You'll also find a handy icon guide for those recipes that are (or can be made) Paleo, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and more, so in no time you'll be whipping up new favorites that will please everyone (and every diet) at your table.
