The reason I came up with bake mixes is I really didn't have time to struggle with each recipe, and besides using a straight exchange of almond flour plus coconut flour for each recipe would not work for my husband as his system does not tolerate much fiber at all, so coming up with something to replace the all-purpose flour each and every time would be a struggle, if it were not for my bake mixes through the years.  I am sure most bloggers figure out a system over time, but varying the "flour" component each time in a recipe can lead to recipe fails and a waste of expensive ingredients.  Give me a simple way to make recipes work typically first time around and I'm happy. With the gluten-free and low-carb bake mixes and even keto bake mixes, we have been blazing a new trail and with the newer bake mixes an even newer trail in the homemade bake mix department.  If you have quit baking for a while or you are going on holiday, no need to throw your bake mix away.  You can freeze or refrigerate the bake mixes for longer storage.  If you only have a little, freeze it anyway and use it at a later date. 

Here are my most recent favorite bake mixes, although I use the Low-Carb, Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 primarily these days, as my husband's digestive system does not tolerate the extra fiber in the Keto Bake Mix well.  Gluten-Free Low-Carb Bake Mix 2  and  Keto Bake Mix  They are completely interchangeable, except for the fact that you will need about 2 tbsp to 1/4 cup extra of the Keto Bake Mix in the recipes to substitute for the Bake Mix 2.  This is all explained in the blog post about the Keto Bake Mix.  It is slightly less robust than the Bake Mix 2 and that is the reason for more being required; however, Keto goodies will be 1 g net carb less per serving as a rule, most of the time.

Here are some ideas for your leftover bake mixes:

1)  Breading eggplant, chicken, fish, seafood and even for making Swiss Steak.
2)  Filler for hamburgers, tuna or salmon patties, vegetable patties/fritters, meat loaves.
3)  Keep in the freezer and you can lump different bake mixes together
4)  If you have some leftover and you plan on doing more baking, simply make up a new batch and use up the leftover bake mix first.
5)  To lower the carbs in the bake mix "breading", I usually add Parmesan cheese (the jarred kind) and seasonings.
6)  It can be used to make my special "breadcrumb" topping for casseroles - mixed with grated cheese and melted butter and baked in pie dish at 375 or 350 deg. F. until golden in color.  Break up and sprinkle over casserole.
7)  You can make an English muffin in the microwave oven
8)  Make jiffy muffins, cakes, cookies in the microwave oven with small amounts of bake mix - use either a ramekin or mug.

This is a collaborative effort between low-carbing friends and thus the name, "Low-Carbing Among Friends".  Those were giddy days as we were a big fish in a small pond and now it is just the other way around. Nowadays we are competing against thousands of low-carb cookbooks and many Kindle cookbooks are being given away for free.  However, I believe in our cookbooks and I love using them myself, and I hope others, too, will still get to enjoy them for many years to come!

This is a very large cookbook with 296 pages.  If you even buy 1 cookbook, I would recommend one like this because you have a huge variety to choose from and from different authors as well.  The book has been through 3 Editions (revisions).  The recipes are sorted by category with each author contributing recipes.  The recipes range from very low-carb (below 5 grams of carbs) to below 10 grams of carbs per serving. and it is safe to say most recipes are below 5 grams of carbs per serving.  The recipes are also all gluten-free.

Several glossy color pages of photos are in the center of the cookbook to inspire you to cook or bake something delicious for your family.  For photos you can look at right now, go to amongfriends.us and look under Recipes for the photos inside each cookbook.  The Addendum category with the Indices is out-of-date.  The Index of the 3rd edition is much easier to navigate than what we originally had in the first edition of this cookbook which came out November 11th, 2011.  The 3rd edition (revised) came out in November, 2015.

The Introduction is by George Stella and there is a comprehensive Helpful Hints section with useful measurements' guide for liquid sweeteners such as sucralose and stevia.  Even I refer back to this guide from time to time.  Super useful to have in the kitchen in your LCAF's low-carb cookbook!  Several doctors wrote articles for this cookbook: The Diet Doctor (Andres Eenfeldt), Dr. Parker, Dr. Robert Su and Dr. John Briffa.

The Index is very comprehensive; by category and by alphabet.  It is fairly easy to navigate as if you are looking for a baked item, for instance, you would peruse the Breads, Muffins and More category.  The sub-categories will further help you to quickly find the recipe you desire.

Also, in this cookbook are featured several great recipes from our low-carb friends.
