The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook by Elana Amsterdam! I met Elana at a blogger conference a few months ago and she has donated signed copies of her book to my readers.

The recipes in this cookbook are diverse — muffins, scones, crackers, chicken fingers, entrees, pie, cake and more. All use almond flour, are gluten-free and grain-free. Almond flour has a low glycemic index and is high in protein and fiber, making it ideal for people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, diabetes, and anyone looking to vary their diet.

Here’s how you can win:
Just make a comment on this post telling what your favorite holiday treat is (or was!). I will choose three winners at random. You have until Friday, December 4 at 5pm PST to comment (only one comment per person please).

Thank you Elana for this wonderful cookbook!

Spread the love


  1. I enjoy eating marzipan during the Holiday season.

  2. Tie between Raspberry Linzer Tarts and Cherry Cheesecake
    Those were the days. Yum!!!

  3. I just found your site through Elana’s Pantry’s tweet! What a great site! I love these pecan fudge truffles I have been addicted to lately.

    Here is the link:

    They are dates and pecans rolled in cocoa powder and toasted coconut. What can get simpler or more delicious? And the best part? No sugar, soy, grain, or dairy! Yay!

  4. Hands down my favorite holiday treat are my “famous” Christmas cookies. Everyone begs for the buttery, sugary, almond-flavored treat. But they just aren’t the same when made gluten-free. Sigh.

  5. Shortbread cookies or other type of simple butter cookie. Sigh…. Before I went GF, I had begun substituting almond flour for wheat flour in my recipes but now I don’t bake much at all.

  6. My favorite treat are those peppermint flavored candy canes to munch on and dipped in chocolate they are even better. Sandy

  7. My mom makes the worlds best fudge! I really miss eating that…

  8. I miss my great grandmas thumbprint cookies with homemade apricot jam and her portuguese sweet bread. That bread with honey butter was amazing!

  9. sicilian cannoli!!

  10. I love millionaire’s shortbread – shortcake fingers topped with sticky caramel fudge, topped with a think layer of chocolate. Mmmmm… decadent!


    always reminds me of my home of new mexico.

  12. my favorites are the sufganiyot for hanuka. this is our first year of making them gf and i hope to find the way to make them just as yummy! the book sounds great!!

  13. Cherry-Cheese Cake; but now I can’t eat dairy, soy or gluten, so haven’t eaten it in years!

  14. My absolute favorite holiday treat has always been pumpkin cheesecake, although I’ve had to improvise through the years to create one that is both vegan and gluten free!

  15. I miss my gingerbread cookies. But I did convert one Italian cookie and it is very good.

  16. I love eggnog this time of year! I also really love sugar cookies because they are so fun to decorate! 🙂

  17. My favorite cookies are these yummy molasses cookies my Grandma always made special for me every Christmas. She left me the recipe when she passed away but hers had that extra special ingredient of love in them. 🙂

  18. My favorite holiday treat is swiss apple pie. Not swiss cheese, it is an apple/custard pie my grandmother made, and can be made gluten free! Thanks for the chance to win the cook book.

  19. My fav is rum balls made with pound cake so I need to figure out how to adapt it. I have also made a chocolate version with those famous brand choclate wafer cookies! Yum!

  20. Oooo..treats….I really love soft, soft sugar cookies that are decorated by the kids! 🙂

  21. Pecan pie!

  22. Pumpkin ice cream from Mitchell’s in San Francisco! It tastes just like pumpkin pie and was a huge hit with everyone on Thanksgiving.

  23. My favorite has to be pumpkin cranberry upside down cake. The gf version is amazing!

  24. I LOVE warm cupcakes during the holidays. I’ve found a great gluten free recipe that is going to help me make it through the season, hooray. ^.^

  25. I’m entering for my 4 year old daughter… who is missing her traditional gingerbread ornament cookies right now! We’re taste testing a few gluten free options but none of them are “just right” according to her!

    As for me… I adore luscious home made egg nog, homemade cheese crackers, and cheesecake!

  26. i would love a copy of the book that finally got me, after 8 years of being gluten-free, to brave baking again.

    and i know my husband and son would like the occasional dessert that’s not dates stuffed with almonds.


  27. I enjoy the Mexican Wedding Cake cookies and gingerbread cookies…would love to find gfree recipes for those.
    Elana’s candied pecans are delicious too!
    I would love a copy of her cookbook!!

  28. oh dear, what with the time difference between colorado and paris maybe i’m too late!!! i hope not!! gf for 6 years in the land of the baguette and the croissant… thank god for people who know how to navigate a kitchen to come up with recipes for us! my favorite holiday treat was and is pumpkin pie! i now make versions with almond crusts, coconut crusts, complicated crusts with 8 different flours… i would loooove to have this book!

  29. Oh, I just missed it! My sister is a celiac+. The + is corn, yeast and milk, so it’s a real challenge to cook for her. This sounds like it could help!

  30. My favorite holiday treat is cherry cheesecake

  31. LOVE Peanut Butter Cream pie!

  32. Joan Msason = If you are still receiving updates from this site, I was wondering if you tried making the gluten free potica and if so, how did it turn out?

  33. My favorite holiday treat was banana dream cake from toojays!
