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 must say the reviews here helped. I was prepared for the large amount of eggs needed for each recipe.
We made the bacon muffins (which the name pretty much says it all) and I loved them. They are perfect for breakfast.
Just heat them for 10 seconds in the microwave to warm them and go. I plan to make several of the muffin recipes for
fast to-go breakfast ideas. You definitely can taste the eggs in these if that bothers you. But I loved it.
We also made the chocolate cookies which were not a hit. It's possible that we got something wrong in the ingredients. Or maybe its that my flour wasn't sifted. But either way these cookies made us so thirsty we'd be running for water with every bite.
I am hopeful that the bread recipes which are expected to be more dense would be good.
I would still recommend this book to anyone wanting to test out coconut flour.
