I just got the new book Everyday Grain-Free Baking in the mail a few weeks ago, and ever since it’s been the cookbook I hand to my kids to choose a recipe on our Saturday baking day tradition. Most recipes are GAPS-legal, and if they’re not, there are simple substitutes or omissions that can be made. I especially love that they call for ingredients I almost always have on hand – coconut and almond flour are used, but those are in most grain-free kitchens anyway.
The recipes are simple to follow and delicious. So far we’ve tried these biscuits and the cinnamon-swirl coffee cake with great success! Kelly offered to let me share the biscuit recipe with my readers, so here it is. Thanks Kelly!
