Monday Lovin’ Gluten-Free Cookbook Giveaway #3!

Welcome to week 3 of Monday Lovin’ Gluten-Free Cookbook Giveaway, an 8-week event designed to share the cookbook love. I’m hoping my excess of cookbooks will help those of you just starting out on your gluten-free journey or expand the libraries of those of you who have been doing this for a while.

I’m giving away one gluten-free cookbook every week to a lucky reader. Again, I’m not giving away these cookbooks because I don’t like them. I LOVE these books and these authors. These are amazing books by some of the most creative recipe developers I know. It’s just time to share the love!

This week I’m giving away two books! And both books are by the wildly talented Elana Amsterdam. The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook was crucial to me discovering my absolute favorite gluten-free flour and how to bake with it. It has recipes for breakfast, breads, crackers, desserts, entrees, and so much more.

Her second book, Gluten-Free Cupcakes, is filled with 50 recipes made with almond flour and coconut flour. Cupcakes, frostings, fillings, toppings, oh my!

Would you like to win a copy of one of these books? All you have to do is make a comment below to enter. You can leave up to 4 entries today by answering 2 dish questions and letting me know in separate comments that you shared the giveaway on Twitter (tagging @glutenfreecat) and “liked” Gluten-Free Cat’s Facebook page.

    I love cake of any kind! ;) I just liked the GFC FB page!

  2. Heather says:

    I also just re-tweeted your tweet with @glutenfreecat mentioned in it!

  3. Heather says:

    Here’s the answers to my dish questions!

    1 – I would like to win one of Elana’s books because I am avidly trying to grow a home cake baking business. I get requests every month for gluten-free cakes, and while I have developed a recipe that works, I would like to know if it can be improved to better serve my clients.

    2 – I would probably say the cupcake one!

    3 – I have baked bread with almond flour, but have not ventured out into baking cake or cupcakes with almond flour.

  4. Cindy W. says:

    I would love to win the Gluten Free Almond cookbook. I have the cupcake book and the recipes are wonderful.

  5. Cindy W. says:

    I do cook with almond flour. I like the texture so much better than rice blends and you get the protein boost. Thanks for the giveaway.

  6. Lily S. says:

    I follow @glutenfreecat on Twitter and shared this giveaway!

  7. Lily S. says:

    I “like” Gluten-Free Cat’s Facebook page.

  8. Lily S. says:

    I would love one of Elana’s books because while I do eat grains, I like to have alternatives that allow me to reduce my overall grain consumption. Almond flour and coconut flour are great for that purpose!

  9. Lily S. says:

    I do bake with almond flour, mostly desserts. I have yet to try a grain free bread, but there are many recipes I would like to make. I like both almond meal and blanched almond flour, as I’m not too picky about texture.

  10. julis says:

    I do Cook With Almond Flour And Would Love To Learn New Recipes!!

  11. Amber says:

    Hi Heather,

    You sure have some fabulous books to give away!! I also own the Gluten Free Almond Four Cookbook, but not the cupcake book. Count me in! I like you on FB,

  12. Amber says:

    I am going for the cupcake book. I don’t own this one, but would love to experiment a bit more with almond flour.

  13. Deanna says:

    I just tweeted the link and tagged you in it!

    I bake with almond flour and have for 2 years.

  17. Carolyn says:

    I would like to win one of the cookbooks to broaden my gluten free recipes!

  18. Deanna says:

    I would love to win the Gluten-Free Cupcakes book! I am always looking for new recipes and ideas to make for my 10 yr. old daughter. We both have celiac disease. I try to make parties and treats to be just like the other kids have. We don’t want boring. It’s hard on her sometimes and I want her to enjoy things too! :) Thanks for offering this,

  19. Deanna says:

    I have recently just started baking with almond flour. Still experimenting! Would love to learn more! :)

  21. Susan says:

    I have just started to use almond flour, so I would love to win The Guilt Free Almond Flour Cookbook, and expand my healthy recipes.

  22. Susan K. says:

    I would love either of her cookbooks, if I had to choose one over the other I would probably choose her Almond Flour cookbook. When I found her site on the internet it gave me hope that I could learn to bake with flours other than rice flour only. Thank you for giving away so many wonderful cookbooks.

  23. Barb K says:

    I would like to win the book because I believe these recipes are healthy and better for you. Also trying to cook a little more gluten free.
    I would like to win the Gluten Free Cupcake Cookbook. Thinking of my cousins.

  24. Barb K says:

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, friend, fitness fanatic, foodie, high raw vegan, child of the King, and Mama Cat. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. And now I have another challenge ahead...I'm moving to New York City! I look forward to Living Raw Vegan in the City and sharing my experience with you.
