I was dismayed to find that not only was that not the case, nutrition information on the recipes was not included--- not even a 'net carb' count.
In addition, many recipes included sugar. Some had 'reduced sugar', but sugar is still sugar. It's not a health food. There were no tested sugar-free versions of any of the recipes. A couple recipes also included bananas, which are a source of natural sugars that most low-carb dieters cannot eat.
I feel the book could be improved greatly by the simple act of providing the nutritional information--- carbs, fat, protein and calories--- for each recipe. Removing the 'low-carb' from the subtitle would help keep people from mistakenly believing this was a book of low-carb recipes suitable for a low-carb or ketogenic diet.
If your health does not require you to be on an actual low-carb diet and you are only concerned with gluten-free issues, or reducing your daily carb intake a little, there may be a lot of recipes in this book that you can use. The general information on using coconut flour may come in handy even for low-carbers (though I'm not sure I'd advise buying the book just for that.)
It's also possible that if you are willing to look up the nutritional information on the ingredients and make adaptations, you could turn some of these recipes into low-carb and sugar-free versions. If you have that ability, this book may be a great addition to your recipe book collection.
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.
The first batch of coconut milk pancakes I made, I used just coconut oil - no butter. They turned out pretty flat and almost like crepes - maybe more like egg flavored cardboard. I made another batch tonight where I added a little fresh ground chia flour for moisture, some mashed banana, and used half butter half coconut oil for the oil portion. I added blue berries and cooked on a griddle at about 335 degrees on butter. It was very moist.. came apart very easily - but not to the point where it was crumbling. Much better this time around. My boys gobbled them right up.
The book tries to solve moisture problems by adding oil. If you add just a little chia, it seems to help retain moisture while reducing some of the crumbliness ( or overly stiff egginess)
I do have a couple of questions though, why do the recipes for muffins only make 6 and not 12? Will they freeze well? And can I use honey instead of sugar in the recipes?
I have a lot of cookbooks, and this is one that will quickly become a favorite, not just for the recipes, but for teaching me a healthier way to snack. I'm very glad I bought it. Two thumbs up!
