Enter to Win: Gluten-Free Cupcakes: 50 Irresistible Recipes Made with Almond and Coconut Flour



I reached out to my Facebook community, and so many of you wanted my next giveaway to be a healthy cookbook! I think most people can figure out how to create healthy meals at home, but what about healthy desserts? You shouldn’t have to sacrifice flavor for your health. You should be able to have both – and you can!

Why Gluten-Free? You do NOT have to be Gluten-Free to love this cookbook by Elana Amsterdam. For my daughter’s first birthday, I ended up making Elana’s Paleo Chocolate Cupcakes with Paleo Chocolate Frosting because I wanted to give my daughter a healthy cupcake to devour for her first birthday! As you can see from the picture below…she enjoyed her birthday cupcake! ;)

First Birthday

The chocolate cupcakes were absolutely delicious. The texture was spot on and the taste was amazing. Again – you don’t have to be gluten free to love the recipes created by Elana Amsterdam. That’s why I think you will all love her Gluten-Free Cupcake cookbook.


Gluten-Free Cupcakes: 50 Irresistible Recipes Made with Almond and Coconut Flour

Cupcakes are the world’s most adorable pastry—but until now, people with gluten sensitivities struggling to find sweetness on a gluten-free diet haven’t had a cupcake cookbook to call their own. Enter gluten-free guru Elana Amsterdam, who has re-engineered the favored treat for today’s dietary needs. Her colorful collection showcases classics like Red Velvet Cupcakes and Vanilla Cupcakes and features creative concoctions like Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes and Cream-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes. These simple-to-make—and simply delicious—cupcakes rely on coconut and almond flours rather than the sometimes difficult-to-source gluten alternatives. Some of the recipes are even vegan and dairy-free, and none use refined sugar. With fifty cupcake recipes plus a variety of frostings to mix and match, Gluten-Free Cupcakes offers delightful cupcake alternatives—as tasty as their traditional counterparts—to anyone in need of a little cupcake fix.
