The start of a new year often rekindles our desire to eat healthier! And for many of us that means saying goodbye to all of those empty-calorie carbs and refined sugars that always seem to creep in during the holidays.
But rather than take drastic measures and completely nix baked goods altogether, what if I told you there’s a way to enjoy traditional baked good favorites without all of the unwanted carbs, refined sugars and gluten?
It’s true! [Tweet “Grain-free baking isn’t just for those who are living a gluten-free, grain-free lifestyle.”] it’s truly a wonderful and tasty way for everyone to enjoy healthy and delicious baked goods without compromising good nutrition.
That’s why I’m so excited to announce my first published cookbook, Everyday Grain-Free Baking! And share a delicious, easy-to-make recipe from the book – Favorite Fruit Muffins.
This delightful recipe is just one of more than 100 irresistible gluten-free, dairy-free recipes in Everyday Grain-Free Baking. From breads, biscuits and muffins to savory snacks and decadent treats, you’ll find step-by-step instructions, beautiful color photographs and helpful tips & tidbits to make all of your low carb, gluten-free baking adventures a delicious success!
My heart in creating Everyday Grain-Free Baking was to transform the everyday comfort foods we hold dear into delightfully flavorful and satisfying GF versions that are so remarkably similar to traditional gluten-based foods that everyone will enjoy these recipes, whether or not they’re living a GF lifestyle.
In fact, I’ve made it my mission to develop recipes that really do taste like the real deal, because I know SO MANY of us struggle with the same challenge – trying to make tasty healthy foods that the whole family can enjoy without having to become a short-order cook!
Discovering recipes that will work for everyone – that actually taste AMAZING – is what Everyday Grain-Free Baking is all about!
See for yourself how delicious gluten-free, grain-free baking can be … this simply scrumptious recipe is one of my family’s favorites and I hope it will soon become one of yours too. Enjoy!
