Giveaway and Review: Spunky Coconut Sugar-Free, Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts

THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED!

Now that I’ve been following the ACD for almost two years (I know! How crazy is that??), I’ve become accustomed to making more or less everything I eat from scratch (including nut butters, jams, condiments, some flours, and even raisin substitutes).  As a result, I’ve come to expect that, if I want a dessert, I will not only have to make it myself, but usually create the recipe myself, too.

So imagine my absolute delight when I received a copy of Kelly (of The Spunky Coconut)’s latest cookbook, Spunky Coconut Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts ! Not only are many of Kelly’s recipes perfectly compatible with the ACD, they also are all grain-free!

This beautiful volume, Kelly’s follow up to her wildly successful The Spunky Coconut Cookbook contains over 80 recipes, all gluten free and casein free, with many egg free as well.  Each is accompanied by a full-color photograph. Chapters include Pie, Cake & Brownies, Ice Cream, Cookies & Treats, Bread & Rolls and Breakfast.  In addition, Kelly provides information on ingredients, how to make nut milk, equipment and a full index.

Above is a photo of the Banana Coconut Cream Pie I made (topped with Kelly’s Whipped Topping from her first book).  I substituted pear for the banana in the original (I’m not allowed bananas on the ACD), and it worked perfectly–I loved this pie!  And, as Kelly tells us in the blurb to this recipe, she and her daughter Ashley “eat this pie for breakfast all the time”–so that is exactly what I did.  Since the pie is tasty without being too sweet and it’s full of nutrition, it’s a perfect morning treat!

Next up were these Buckwheat Biscuits.  They were terrific slathered with some coconut butter.

Finally, I simply had to try the Divine Vegan Chocolate Cake (Like chocolate much?  Who, me?).  I opted for the mini-cupcake versions, which were perfect topped with my Sugar Free, Soy Free, Nut Free Chocolate Buttercream Frosting (recipe coming up later this week). Aren’t they gorgeous?  Fudgy, moist and chocolately, these cupcakes were, indeed divine.

And Kelly has generously offered to give away a copy of the book to one of  you! 

Now that you’re drooling, I bet you’d love to win a copy of The Spunky Coconut: Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts for your very own! All you need do to enter the giveaway is leave a comment on this postSimply tell me what is your favorite dessert, or which dessert you’d love to try in a grain-free version.  Please be sure that your email address is connected to the comment (if you’re commenting for the first time, it won’t be visible on this page; if you’ve commented before, you won’t need to add it if it’s already linked to your name or blog).
