When Kelly Smith asked me to review her new cookbook, Everyday Grain-Free Baking: Over 100 Recipes for Deliciously Easy Grain-Free and Gluten-Free Baking, I jumped at the chance. I knew from her blog The Nourishing Home, that I would like the recipes.
What I love about Kelly’s book, is that she uses the same ingredients that I do. Because she doesn’t use any starch, and provides dairy-free options, I can enjoy almost all of the recipes. For those of you following Paleo, Primal, SCD and/or GAPS diets, you’ll find a lot to love in this cookbook.
With more than 100 easy-to-make recipes that are gluten-free, grain-free free, refined-sugar-free and dairy-free, or contain dairy-free options, there’s an entire chapter devoted to each of these traditional baked goods:
- Breads & Rolls
- Biscuits, Scones & Crackers
- Pancakes & Waffles
- Pies, Tarts & Crisps
- Cakes & Cupcakes
- Classic Cookies
- Brownies & Bars
- Sweet Additions
The first recipe I tried was for the Almost Oatmeal Cookies, and they did not disappoint. The cookies were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. They were great with raisins, and I think they would be good with chocolate chips too.
