The Essential Gluten-Free Baking Guides Giveaway: Final Day To Enter!

Lemon Squares: From the Sweet White Rice Flour chapter of book 2

Today is the big day! My brand new cookbooks, The Essential Gluten-Free Baking Guides, are officially available and will begin shipping out today. My co-author, Brittany Angell, and I spent nine months learning everything we could about gluten-free baking so that we could save you time and money in the kitchen. With these books as your guide, you will no longer have to wonder which flours can be exchanged for each other, how to adapt recipes to be vegan, or how to work without xanthan gum. All these answers and more can be found in our guides, along with over 100 recipes between the two books.

To celebrate we are giving away our favorite products. We want you to have only the best of the best ingredients when you are making our recipes.  On Tuesday we gave away gift baskets from Navitas Naturals and Big Tree Farms. That giveaway is still open, so be sure to go enter there! Yesterday we gave away gift baskets from Triumph Dining, NuNaturals, and Simply Organic. That giveaway will also be open until midnight tonight so enter now if you haven't already! And today, you can enter here to win one of four possible prizes!

Chocolate Glazed Apricot Brownie Bites: From the Buckwheat Flour chapter of Book 2

What are we giving away today?

Our guides go into extensive detail about various types of unrefined sugars, and how we use them in our baking. Wholesome Sweeteners Agave Nectar and Sucanat were both products that we recommended to our readers, and we know you'll enjoy this gift basket they will be sending to one of you!





















Nuts.com Gift Pack:
Brittany learned about Nuts.com when she first began getting into grain-free baking. They are an amazing resource for gluten-free flours, and we were lucky enough to be able to test out their flours during our photo shoot. Today they are giving away two gift packs. Brittany will be giving away flours on her blog that correspond to the flours in book 1, and I will be giving away flours from book 2! So that means you can enter here to win a gift package filled with sorghum, buckwheat, teff, rice,  and potato flour, PLUS tapioca starch, potato starch, and organic chia energy squares! To win the gift basket for book 1, comment over at Brittany's blog!

Organic Chia Energy Squares

Dakota Prairie Gift Pack:
Dakota Prairie has a dedicated gluten-free facility that produces finely milled flours. We loved working with their flours in our recipes, and found that their rice flour produced baked goods with a wonderfully light texture. Like with Nuts.com, Dakota Prairie wants to help you get started with baking all of our recipes, so they are giving away two gift packs, one corresponding to each book. You can leave a comment here to win flours from book 2: sorghum, sweet white rice, buckwheat, teff, rice, and potato flour, PLUS potato starch, arrowroot starch, and tapioca starch. Leave a comment at Brittany's blog to win the flours from book 1.

Cassava flour was a new product for Brittany and I. Early on in our baking process, we spoke with Carter Foss from American Key Food Products, and he told us about his amazing new product. After trying a bite of his cassava flour cupcakes at The Gluten- and Allergen-Free Expo in Dallas last year, I knew we had to include this flour in our books. Because we know it will be new for most of you as well, AKFP is sending 5 winners each their own bag of cassava flour so you can try the recipes in the book right away! 



One copy of The Essential Gluten-Free Baking Guide Part 2!
I will be signing this copy from the first printing and sending it to one winner! Some of my favorite recipes from this book are:
Lemon Squares (Sweet White Rice Flour Chapter)
Chocolate Glazed Apricot Brownie Bites (Buckwheat Chapter)
Vegan, Yeast-Free Sandwich Bread (Sorghum Flour Chapter)
Pizza Roll-Ups and Whole-Grain Dinner Rolls (Teff Flour Chapter)
Mini Pizza Pockets (Potato Flour Chapter)

To win a copy of book 1 signed by Brittany Angell, stop by her blog and leave a comment.



How to enter: (This giveaway is now closed)
All of these giveaways are open to addresses in the continental U.S. only. There will be eight winners for this giveaway (winners posted on Friday), and five winners for the same giveaway on Brittany's site today as well! You have until midnight today so start getting those entries in! Here are all the ways you can enter. Please leave a separate comment for each entry, and you MUST leave an e-mail address or way for me to contact you.


  1. Leave a comment telling me which gift pack you would like to win.
  2. Visit one of the sponsoring companies and tell me something you like about them (they are truly awesome companies).
  3. Post about the giveaway on your Facebook page and/or like my FB page (2 possible entries).
  4. Tweet about this giveaway and/or follow me on twitter (2 possible entries).

I am most interested in your book, especially with that beautiful lemon bar picture to tempt me. But I am also interested in the cassava flour. I can't use potato starches or flours, so cassava may prove a useful alternative. Thanks!

As a newby in the "gluten free living world", I am a bit overwhelmed with all I have to learn about staying healthy. Nuts.com has made this transtion a bit easier for me, as it appears to be a go to source for all of my baking needs. I can't wait to dive in and make my first batch of gluten free chocolate chip cookies!!!

Alas, if I have to choose, it will definitely be the cassava flour. Cassava is very common in Filipino cooking, and I want there to be lots of gluten-free/vegan Filipino desserts in my future & the future of The Canary Files!

Congrats again on the launch of the books!!! So proud!
