4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise, August 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Joy of Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Baking: 80 Low-Carb Recipes that Offer Solutions for Celiac Disease, Diabetes, and Weight Loss (Hardcover)
I bought this book because I respect Peter Reinhart but even so I did not have high expectations, based on the taste of other sugar free baking I've done. This bread is far better than other recipes I've tried. I'm made the toasting bread, which is VERY dense and not at all sweet. Stick with this bread--it grows on you as the flavor develops after it cools. Also, eating two 1/4 inch slices of this bread for breakfast rather than an English muffin has lowered my fasting glucose reading about 10 points this week. (Even when I put Trader Joe's Cookie Butter 1/2 tsp. on it). I have a pecan loaf that has more Stevia in it in the oven right now and it smells wonderful. Like a prior reviewer, I would like to know exactly how many carbs each recipe produces per serving. I'm suspecting that the bread I just made will not do for everyday consumption because of the difference in sweetener. Also, I had no idea---maybe I didn't read the description carefully enough, which I've been known to do--that this involved nuts. I don't personally have nut allergies, but I've got grandkids with gluten and nut allergies, so this bread can't be baked for them. Nut flour is expensive and, where I live, it is not readily available. I invested in one of the spice/nut grinders recommended by the authors (the Cuisinart) and it works well. You can order the flour from several places, but the shipping costs will probably make it even more expensive as this stuff is not light. Finally, I would advise looking for liquid egg whites. When I first got the book I was in such a hurry to try the recipes that I settled for powdered egg whites that had to be mixed up---what a mess!!! The liquid ones are widely available. I should have waited.

Just thought i would share that Honeyville Grain sells almond flour at a very good price with shipping on all orders only 4.99. Been buying from them for the last eight years I have been gluten free. Hope this helps!

You can order many of the nut flours directly from Amazon. Just put it into the Amazon search box and you'll get all kinds of options. If you're an Amazon prime member, many of them come with the "free" two day shipping option.

Honeyville Grain is a great vendor, has wonderful products. I buy 5# bags of almond flour; they have both blanched without skin and with-skin, both are very good. Honeyville has a very good website, and is an excellent company.

Honeyville Grain almond flour is sold in 5# and 25# amounts at amazon, where there is free shipping for orders of $25.

After opening, I keep my almond flour in the refrigerator, tightly sealed.
