I'm trying to do low carb, so have just ordered some almond flour (which is outrageously expensive in the UK, Coconut is cheaper). If anyone has any recipes they think are real winners for the Almond then I'd appreciate it, especially simple ones. I've looked at some but they often incorporate all kinds of bits which you can't pick up in the supermarket, well you can't here anyway, it has to be specialist providers.
This is the issue I had with a lot of the vegan cookbooks I looked at. Nice healthy food and such, but the ingredient lists are made up of 30 things, 10 of which you've never heard of/never seen/would never use again after this recipe. I can't be arsed with that. If it doesn't have less than 10 ingredients and be cooked in less than 20 minutes (or prepped and shoved in an oven while I do other stuff), I lose interest immediately.
Cooking with alternate flours is a bear too. Be prepared for quite a few failures - not having the gluten of wheat to bind it together means that you have to use xanthan gum in everything, and it's all suck-it-and-see. I've found by trial and error that for every cup of flour, three teaspoons of xanthan is about what you need so it doesn't fall apart when you bake it. Apart from one recipe, I've decided to leave that stuff to the experts, spend the extra $$, and buy my gluten free bread and muffins. Let us know how it goes for you though - your mileage might vary.
