About the Author
Kelly V. Brozyna began to study nutrition in 2004 when she and her family were found to have reactions to gluten, dairy, and refined sugar. Inspired by raw food, Kelly incorporates nut milks and natural alternatives to sugar to create grain-free baked goods and desserts for everyone to enjoy. Together, through diet and biomedical treatments, their family is overcoming celiac disease, gluten-intolerance, ADD, and autism with great success. Kelly is the author of The Spunky Coconut Cookbook and the gluten-free food blog www.TheSpunkyCoconut.com. She lives in Boulder County, Colorado with her husband and three daughters.

Honestly, I wish I could give this 4.5 stars but since that is not an option, 4 it is. The only reason I do not give this book 5 stars is due to the price. When I purchased the first cookbook, it was explained to me that the high price is because Kelly and her husband have to pay to have their books published. While I understand that, I wish there was a way to bring down the price. With that said, I will continue to buy any future cookbooks written by Kelly at nearly any price (within reason!) - they are that good!
My husband is allergic to eggs, so this does limit the number or recipes I could try directly from the book without alterations. I would say that a little over half of the recipes call for eggs, but some don't ... and those my friends, are true gems. (The author notes "egg-free" right next to the title, so helpful!)
The first recipe I made from this cookbook was the Red Rock Rolls (onion/oregano version), and then I moved onto the Cinnamon Raisin Bagels. Both recipes were amazingly delicious (the dough alone is addictive), and have become repeats each week in our house since my husband thankfully loves them (so low in sugar and they take care of his mid-day sweets cravings!).
I can't wait to enjoy the rest of the recipes, as the results are spot on, and the author really knows how to add flavor. This cookbook is a true must for anyone wanting to dabble in grain-free baking.
Ultimately, I think both of Kelly's books are fantastic and are well worth it! I use them frequently and recommend them all the time.
and make often the pumpkin spice cake! The texture is wonderful and I often eat it for breakfast. The recipes are for baked goods but
they are loaded with nutritious ingredients-who doesn't like cake for breakfast?
