Review and Giveaway: Against All Grain by Danielle Walker

UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. The winner is Donna F. Congrats, Donna! If you didn’t win, but wish to get a copy of this book, here are some ways you can purchase your copy!

Last fall, Danielle of Against All Grain contacted me, asking if I’d help her out while she was writing her new book. I’d followed her blog for some time (okay, it was more like ogling all of her gorgeous photos and tasty-looking recipes), so I was more than happy to help. Along with a ton of other bloggers, I wrote a guest post for her. It was small potatoes compared to what she was putting together. This book was bound to be epic.

And now, almost a year later, Danielle has realized her dream. Her book was released on July 30th in the United States, and she’s been touring all around the country, busy with book signings and all sorts of appearances. While I can’t possibly imagine how insane that must be (although seeing her frequent Instagram posts gives you an idea), I can imagine how tasty the recipes she has created just by browsing through this book.

Of course, after making some of them, I no longer even have to imagine. For instance – her Real Deal Chocolate Chip Cookies (page 258). They’re grain-free, but still that lovely, slightly soft texture with a perfect level of sweetness. Excellent for tucking into a lunchbox for a treat.

And then there are her Fruit Juice Gelatin Shapes (page 214). These were possibly one of my favorites. They’re easy, and they’re a great way to get a bit of gelatin into your daily life (or into your kids). In fact, I’ve been making them on a weekly basis – sometimes with all juice, and sometimes with a mix of herbal tea and juice. I love them as a quick pre-workout snack when it’s too early for me to manage much more to eat.

Danielle has shared many more amazing-looking recipes in this book: Marinated Artichoke Hearts, Seafood, Chorizo, and Chicken Paella, and N’Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, just to name a few. And of course, all of the photos are simply gorgeous.

Want to win a copy of Against All Grain by Danielle Walker? This week, I’ll be giving away one copy to a lucky winner!

How to enter:

This giveaway is open to anyone 18 years of age and over, and a resident of US or Canada.

This giveaway will end on Saturday, September 21, at 11:59pm CT.

Best of luck to you all!

  1. Since I’ve gone grain free, almost anything made with almond flour wins my vote but I have also grown fond of a muffin I make with flax seed, apple and egg (no flour at all.) I’m getting ready to remove all starches from my diet so this particular muffin fits right in. Love your blog.

  2. Hail Merry Granola

  3. My favorite grain-free treats are macaroons like Hail Merry macaroons, or homemade versions :)
