I enjoy promoting great products I believe in and companies I can stand behind. More than that, I like helping fellow bloggers. Erica’s site Comfy Belly provides useful resources for those following a grain-free, Paleo, gluten-free or Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). Her straight-forward and easy-to-follow recipes provide helpful guidance and ideas. Some of my favorites on her site include cinnamon bun muffins, thai chicken salad, and popovers.
I was delighted to learn Erica has a new cookbook, Cooking for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. It contains over 100 refined sugar-free, gluten-free and grain-free recipes (many are also dairy-free). She has plenty of baked goods, sweet treats, vegetables and mock starches, soups, stews, and condiments. If you’ve been looking for great, familiar grain-free recipes, I recommend this book for your kitchen.
One recipe that stood out to me was the “Oatmeal” cookies with marshmallow filling. We were packing last week for a road trip, so I whipped up a batch of these for the kids. The coconut flakes and cinnamon give the flavor and texture of an oatmeal cookie without the grain. You can eat them alone or add a quick and easy marshmallow filling. I plan to make these quick cookies without the filling and store them in the freezer for a school lunch treat.
Erica kindly offered to share the recipe with us and give away Cooking for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to one lucky reader! Please see the widget below for details.
