    I recently bought a book The Joy of Gluten-free, Sugar-free Baking.
    Solutions for celiac disease, diabetes and weight loss.

    I am waiting for ingredients to arrive so not tested them yet.

    The writers are American and there is no nutritional values for the recipes. I put a couple of recipes into my fitness Pal and they are very low carb.

    I got my copy from eBay.

    Interesting because gluten free products bought in the UK are often heavier in carbs than the wheat based equivalent.
    I would be really interested in further information if you wouldn't mind posting once the products arrive?
    Could I ask what the books title is and authors names?

    Thank you very much

    Tony

    I tend to find that a low carb recipe is likely to be gluten free, but if it isn't, then it is easier to replace the gluteny products, rather than going for a gluten free recipe and then tweaking it to make it low carb.

    Did that actually make sense?
    I know what I mean, but do you?

    I do know what you mean!

    The recipes contain various nut flours and seeds.

    I am not a natural baker, I need ingredients and instructions.
