Finding foods today that are not over-processed can certainly be a challenge. Foods that are highly refined can be bad enough, but when you are sensitive to grains and gluten, it can feel as though you are missing out on so much. Pizza, pasta, breads—you name it! Trying to work with alternative ingredients can be a challenge and they don’t always come how you want them to.
That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about Gluten Free & Grain Free Breads, Batters, and Doughs by Halle Cottis of Whole Lifestyle Nutrition. First, I have to say that Halle really knows what she’s talking about. She’s not just another chef who decided to whip out a cookbook. I’m cannot wait to try some of these original recipes!
Gluten sensitivity is a problem that both she and one of her daughters live with on a daily basis. So, she knows how challenging it can be and how important it is to find a workable solution.
A number of supermarkets today are now offering gluten free and grain free products, but they are still few and far between and most of them either taste like cardboard, contain tons of processed sugar, or are filled with harmful chemicals, fillers and GMOs. This book teaches you how to make delicious alternatives to the real thing without using gluten or grains. Even better, Halle focuses on the use of all-natural, whole ingredients in this book.
Gluten Free & Grain Free Breads, Batters, and Doughs is More Than a Cookbook!
While you will find a ton of recipes in this book, it’s actually far more than a cookbook. Just a few of the benefits offered:
- Save money by avoiding wasting quality ingredients in recipes that just do not work
- Become educated about how to successfully bake without gluten or grains
- Enjoy delicious pastas, breads, donuts and other baked items without compromising your health
- Feel good about giving your family wholesome real foods
Halle also shows you how to avoid the most common problems related to working with gluten-free and grain-free recipes. As she points out, it truly is an art form. Fortunately, she holds nothing back in this book. You will learn all of the tricks and tips for working with:
- Almond flour
- Nut butters
- Coconut flour
- Arrowroot flour
- Tapioca flour
- Toasted quinoa flour
Better Than the Originals
With a husband and three daughters, Halle is no stranger to the need to satisfy everyone while still keeping her meals healthy. Each of the recipes in this book is family tested.
I have, of course, read a number of similar books, but after reading Halle’s book, I must say I was quite surprised at the multitude of ‘regular’ recipes that she could create without using grains or glutens. I’ve even learned some awesome tips to make my own grain-free recipes even better!
Just a few of some of my favorite recipes:
- Chocolate Dipped Donuts
- Homemade Pasta
- Easy Tortillas
- Brazilian Cheese Bread
- Crispy Tortilla Chips
- Coconut Flour Pizza
- The Best Brownies Ever
- Texas Sheet Cake
The way that Halle has designed this book also makes it very easy to use.
- Every recipe includes important nutritional information, such as proteins, calories, fats, and carbs
- A baking guide walks you through baking with alternative flours
- Beautiful pictures of every recipe
- Compatible with your smartphone, tablet, or iPad for on-the-go convenience
This book even includes bonus cooking classes. I highly recommend this book for anyone who still wants to enjoy delicious baked goods without compromising health!
