IF you don't have a problem with eggs, this is a great recipe book. I've made several of the muffin recipes and and a few of the loaves as well. I reall like the taste and texture and have recommended the book to several people. Whether the results are high or low carb depends on which recipe you choose, and you do have a choice for many of them of using the stevia-only versions. You don't have to use a recipe with cornmeal or cornstarch; they're in those particular recipes for a reason, but not in all of them. You can choose coconut milk, or any other non-dairy milk. I don't get why some reviewers make things so difficult for themselves. Can they use every recipe in every other cook book they buy? I'm not interested in every recipe in the book, but there are many more I have yet to try, and will. Of those I have made, the ingredients, except for the coconut flour itself, are all readily available.

I bought this book for two reasons: firstly, to learn more about cooking with coconut flour, as my own attempts had been somewhat less than appetizing (!) and secondly, because I wanted to find reduced-carb 'treats' that I could enjoy, while still following a low-carb diet! To every dieter or carb-counter out there: this book could be the answer to your prayers!

While this book certainly is helpful to people with gluten sensitivities, there are, as has been mentioned, large quantities of eggs in most of the recipes. There's a very simple technical reason for that. Gluten is the protein found in wheat, which gives baked goods their structure and the ability to rise. Coconut flour contains no gluten, so the eggs are required to provide the protein structure.

My husband, who is gluten sensitive, is able to plough through yummy muffins, etc, with no ill effects. For me the main benefit has been in being able to indulge the odd carb craving by eating delicious baked goods that have a dramatically reduced carb content! Coconut flour contains 3 times more fiber than digestible carbs, virtually making it a negative net carb food!!!

Once I understood the principles involved with baking with coconut flour, I was able to 'freestyle' with recipes of my own, such as breakfast muffins with bacon, mushrooms and cheese! Great start to my mornings!

In fact, the muffin recipes the author gives in this book are so quick and easy, you can literally leave them to bake while showering in the morning! By the time I'm done, so are they!

Guilt-free fresh baked muffins every morning? You bet! Pounds still melting off my hips and tummy? Oh yes! Does it get any better than this?!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bruce Fife has done a great job in helping people to understand that coconut oil and other coconut foods are good for us. I have been aggressively integrating coconut into my diet with happy results. I believe that coconut oil, milk, flour & cream are really healthy food choices.

I bought this book hoping to find some really interesting main dishes that I could use to expand my use of coconut in daily food preparation. I was somewhat disappointed to find that the bulk of this cookbook is devoted to bread, muffins and desert items. This 160 page book has 50 pages of general information, about 90 pages of bread and dessert items, and 17 pages of main dish recipes with a predominant use of ground meat in those recipes. I seldom eat or cook with ground meat so these recipes were of little interest to me.

I suspect that anyone buying this book is interested in improving his nutrition, so if you are looking for a healthy bread/dessert recipe book, this cookbook may be perfect for you.

When I got my copy in the mail, I was surpried at how wonderful the recipes looked when I flipped through the book. So far I have made the pancakes and meatloaf and both were very good. This book is a keeper and I just know I will use it daily. I have been looking for a way to replace wheat for a long time now (not allergic to wheat, just want to cut back on the amount I eat day in and day out). I have tried almond flour and protein powders, but not thrilled with the out come. I went ahead and ordered the coconut cookbook by Bruce Fife also. Can't wait for that one to arrive. You must try this book if you are serious about adding coconut to your lifestyle. I cut back on dairy also, so the use of coconut milk is another plus. This Boy can cook, that about sums it up for me.

Format: Paperback
Being allergic to so many foods that I know of and some that I do not know; I was eager to read this book.

As I read the information I was truly surprised at the problems that wheat and gluten cause in people that they are not aware of, myself included, and wheat is in just about everything that we consume. That is not good for those of us who are not informed of the problems wheat intolerance can cause.

However, take heart! The author gives us a wonderful alternative in the use of coconut flour. This versatile flour can be used to make just about any recipe that you want, with a few adjustments. Coconut flour is also good for you. It improves digestion, helps regulate blood sugar, protects against diabetes, helps prevent heart disease and cancer and can even be in aid in weight loss. Sounds almost like a miracle flour doesn't it?

Perhaps it is.

This work is absolutely chock full of easy to understand information on the use of Coconut flour and its benefits. The author has also given page after page of delicious recipes that use this flour and can be substituted for those you now use. You can still have the foods you love but without the bad effects of wheat.

This is a well thought out, well researched book and one that as you read it, you can tell the author knows his subject matter. That is comforting.

If you are concerned about your health, looking for some answers to improve it this work is for you. I'm going to keep it close by as a reference and share the valuable information I have acquired from it. Great job! Great book! I recommend this one.
