Turning 40 and a Bob’s Red Mill Giveaway

Coconut+Flour+Pancakes+4You know when you are a little kid and excited for your birthday or Christmas, and all the adults tells you that giving is better than receiving?  You look at them in disbelief and think “yeah, right, bring on my presents please!”.  Then you get a little older and you see a little glimmer of what they mean when you find the perfect gift for a loved one and can hardly wait to give it to them.  Then you get a little older still, making your own money, and you find that it really is quite pleasurable to spend it on someone other than yourself.  And then suddenly you are a grown up, with little children of your own, and you hardly think about your own wants or needs at Christmas and birthdays, but find yourself wild with excitement at the thought of watching your kids open up their gifts.  That’s when you finally feel that it might be true:  it is better to give than to receive.

Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cake

Well, dear reader, here I am, two days after my 40th birthday, and I am giving gifts to you.  Or rather, I am giving you the opportunity to win a gift here on All Day I Dream About Food. As you probably know, many of my recipes are made with products by Bob’s Red Mill, and I usually have at least 3 or 4 open Bob’s packages in my baking cupboard. They also happen to be very nice people and I’ve had nothing but good vibes when I’ve worked with them in the past. So I asked them to help me celebrate my birthday, the big 4-0, and they agreed to let me host a little giveaway of my top 5 favourite low carb, gluten free products.

pumpkin bran muffins 4 @dreamaboutfood

I love their hazelnut meal, it was the inspiration behind my Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake, so that had to go into the prize pack. And I use their golden flax seed meal all the time for pancakes and muffins, like my Pumpkin “Bran” Muffins. Their coconut flour is perfect for making my Light and Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes. And I use their xanthan gum all the time in baking, my single bag has lasted me a good 2.5 years, and I bake a LOT! It was a toss up for the last product, as I find so many useful. But I settled on their shredded coconut, which is perfect in treats like my Cranberry Almond Macaroons. It’s a great prize pack and perfect for any low carb, gluten-free baker!

Low Carb Coconut Almond Macaroons

Please note that Bob’s Red Mill simply agreed to provide the products for the winner of this giveaway. I did not receive any product or compensation from them for this post.

  1. Those cranberry almond macaroons look fabulous. I think I’d start there if I won this great giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity.

  2. Jennifer Nguyen says:

    Bob’s Red Mill products are definitely a staple for my clean eating! I love the golden flax seed meal for my smoothies and a great egg substitute for my vegan eaters. Cheers to your 40th!

  3. Happy Birthday and wow – thanks for thinking of us! My own bday is right before Christmas so it doesn’t seem that special sometimes.

    • I clicked on the raffle thingie and just saw what I needed to do so —

      I would make pancakes with the coconut flour! Biscuits next:-)

    • You need to have a 6-month birthday. This is how it came into being for me. When I was about 16 I lamented to my older sister that it was too long to wait 12 months for my birthday and I suggested that I should have a 6-month birthday, on, you guessed it, the day 6 months after my birthday. As with so many of my genius ideas I completely forgot about it until my sister presented me with a surprise chocolate layer cake on my 6-month birthday. Ever since then I have celebrated my 6-month birthday, and my husband knows better than to forget about it!

  4. Well I already make your bran muffin recipe on a weekly basis, so that would be a good start, but I’d like to branch out and try something new, especially with the hazelnut meal, which I’ve never used. Hazelnut-chocolate loaf, perhaps, for a nutella-like breakfast bread.

  5. I’ve been thinking about some sort of yummy cheesecake. These products would be a great addition to any recipe! Thanks and Happy Birthday!

  6. I’m a big fan of BRM products! I think their coconut flour is my favorite – I use it in a lot of my cooking/baking.

    Cranberry Almond Macaroons

  86. I am looking thru this site frequently and have made pancakes with almond flour. I am just getting started on this journey and trying to overhaul my diet completely for health reasons and blood sugar issues. It seems overwhelming at first. But I am taking my time learning as much as I can and stocking a pantry with such goodies as you have mentioned. Have already used almost a whole bag of both golden flaxseed meal and almond flour/meal and coconut flour from Bob’s Red Mill. I have used shredded coconut in smoothies and coconut butter in bread. I have never used hazelnut meal but your recipe sounds delish!! I just ordered guar gum and psyllium husk powder and nutritional yeast flakes from the internet for several other recipes I am wanting to try. Hope I win. Thanks for the opportunity and I am very pleased with Bob’s Red Mill myself. All this stuff is all new to me. I’m a novice. smile

  87. Oooh! I want to make macaroons now! Happy Birthday!

  88. Local stores have stopped carrying coconut flour and I’ve been out for awhile, so I’d probably make pancakes or cheese biscuits if I won.

  89. I would love to make something with the Hazelnut Meal! I haven’t worked with hazelnut meal yet so that would be exciting!

  90. G.Parker says:

    I eat flaxseed in my oatmeal every day, and I think coconut would be a yummy addition to oatmeal as well!

  91. I use the flaxseed to make 1-minute cinnamon microwave muffins….and we always have a stash of frozen coconut flour waffles in the freezer.

  92. I would start by making muffins!

  93. Ooh, how rude of me–Happy Birthday to You. smile. You’re still a mere pup. :-)

  94. Melanie E. says:

    I would try the bundt cake, absolutely!!!

  95. First of all…. Happy Happy Birthday Carolyn!! Woo Hoo! Have a wonderful Day! :)

    What would I make with Bob’s Red Mill Products? Well, what wouldn’t I make with them is the question. Lol! I’ve used so many of your recipes to bake the most wonderful low carb items. Pancakes, waffles, cookies, Donuts, muffins, breads, and the list goes on! I am so grateful for the wonderful recipes that you have provided and these products from Bob’s Red Mill have saved my Type I diabetic hubby from a very boring existence. Now I can vary his diet and not worry about high blood sugar episodes. I think his most favorite item is the Pumpkin coconut bread recipe made with Bob’s Red Mill Golden Flax seed meal, Coconut Flour and Xanthan Gum. I use this recipe to make muffins. I make a big batch if I know that we will be traveling and put them in the cooler so that he can have them for breakfast. There isn’t a day that I don’t use Bob’s Red Mill products.
    Thank You again Carolyn for the recipes, and Thank You Bob’s Red Mill for making these products available!

  96. Beth Miranda says:

    I would make that hazelnut cake, yum! My 40th is in August, would be a great birthday cake!

  97. My hubby would go nuts over those coconut bites!

  98. I have never used hazelnut flour so I would love to try the Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

  99. First of all, Happy Birthday!
    Now, what I would make would take a while to decide as every recipe I see on your site sounds even better than the one before. I use almond meal/flour, flax seed meal, coconut flour, xanthan gum and coconut almost every day but I’ve never used the hazelnut meal so I would definitely find one of your recipes to use that first and, actually, that Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake sounds fantastic!
    Thanks for the giveaway; it makes life more interesting!

  100. I am making low carb lemon bars with the coconut flour right now! Yum!

  101. Happy Birthday! Those macaroons look like a good place to start :)

  102. I’ve been making my own almond milk (it’s 100 times tastier than anything you can buy in the store) and then using the almond pulp to make grain-free “granola” with it. With the almond pulp, I put all sorts of seeds and nuts and I think these different sorts of meal and the coconut would be a perfect addition!

  103. Mary Hall says:

    I’d make a (gluten free) bread!

  104. Happy Birthday, Carolyn! Hope you had a grand day. I use Bob’s products all the time, but think your Hazelnut chocolate cake looks particularly good. That would be my starter recipe.

  105. I love Bob’s Red Mill. I have to have a gluten free diet, so there range of alternatives is super awesome! :D

  106. Happy, Happy Birthday Carolyn!!! As I have a good amount of experience in the 4th decade of life, I can assure you that it’s the best yet. Cheers!

  107. I’d make a special birthday cake for our gluten free friends. Thanks for offering the chance to win. We love Bob’s Red Mill products.

  108. Happy Birthday! I would used the golden flax seeds for my buttermilk low carb bread and the hazelnut flour in an italien chocolate torte.

  109. I can’t wait to make your Light and Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes!

  110. I’d make pancakes!!

  111. Skylar S says:

    I’m still relatively new to low-carbing, but I’d love to try the coconut flour pancakes. They sound so delish!

  112. Pat Garay says:

    I would most definitely make that hazelnut chocolate bundt cake! Thanks for the chance to win!

  113. First thing I would make is the hazelnut chocolate cake…it’s calling my name. :)

  114. I would love to make the cranberry almond macaroons! Those look delicious!!

  115. Hi Carolyn, I hope you have had a wonderful birthday! I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you. I have recently moved to a low carb diet because I felt I had completely let myself go. When I would try and “low fat diet” I was starving all the time and I knew I needed to take a different path. Since cutting the carbs my life has changed dramatically. I am in great form, I have energy and I have lost 20lbs and I don’t feel deprived. However, I am somewhat of a cake junky and it was the only thing that I was really missing from the way I used to eat. And because of this I thank you. Your blog has been an inspiration. I love reading about each of your recipes and how they came about and making them (or at least trying to :)) has been something I have really enjoyed doing. Looking forward to future culinary adventures :)

  116. Connie Narr says:

    I would love to try your “Light and Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes ” They look so good

  117. I like Bob’s Red Mill products….would love to win these. Happy 40th, my daughter turns 40 this week too. Of course I am not any older LOL. I really enjoy your recipes..have tried several Thanks for all of them

  118. All of us in my family are GF and my husband and I are also LC. I have really been craving some pancakes, so I would first make pancakes!
    Thanks for all the great recipes:)

  119. Cherry Hazelnut Macaroons for sure! Happy Birthday Carolyn!

  120. David Marshall says:

    Congrats on 40! Love the blog and mornings wouldn’t be the same around here without your recipes. I’ve yet to try hazelnut flour and that bunt cake looks like a great place to start.

  121. I would make coconut pancakes…LOVE them! :)

  122. I would love to try the hazelnut flour, too. The bundt cake looks awesome! Thanks for these amazing recipes. :)

  123. Meghan Finley says:

    I’m thinking cupcakes

  124. I’m dying to make your vanilla ice cream recipe with the xanthan gum! (Will provide my own vodka…)

  125. Happy Birthday Carolyn! I hope you had a wonderful day with your family. I’ve always enjoyed using Bob’s Red Mill gluten free products, their coconut flour is in my cupboard right now and I just made some muffins with it the other day!

  126. Must try the pumpkin “bran” muffins! Love pumpkin and love Bob’s Red Mill golden flax seed, which I use in smoothies and grainless granola.

    Sending birthday blessings!

  127. Happy Happy 40th Birthday
    Love your recipes and love Bob’s Red Mill.

  128. I really like their products and your blog – a perfect match. Happy Birthday – I loved turning 40 – thought wow this is cool!! I would be so excited to win those cookies sure look good – think I’d give them a try.

  129. Happy 40th….Is it just me or are the people turning 40 these days looking more like “late-20’s/early 30’s-ish???…Forty is so YOUNG…now!!

    Moving on…I would make every single recipe here…especially the hazelnut chocolate chip bundt…and I have a favorite family dessert “Filbert Torte”….from an old 1984 “Best of Food and Wine” cookbook… which uses a full pound of ground hazelnuts!..The page is stained/”loved” beyond recognition as I make this at least once a year…twenty-five years running!…Love that Bob’s …and filberts are so Oregonian!!!…My sister lives five minutes from the Bob’s Red Mill HQ!!…Very friendly …”family feel” environment…they have great tours and a superlative café as well!

  130. Happy birthday and thanks for thinking of us with Bob’s Red Mill Products! Love them!

  131. You had me at macaroons… or was it bundt cake…?

  132. Happy belated birthday!!

    I just saw the hazelnut flour in the store last week and almost bought it but didn’t, so I would love this mix to try your Chocolate Hazelnut Bundt Cake. This gluten free is all pretty new to me since I just diagnosed myself with gluten sensitivity because the Drs.. couldn’t find anything wrong with me by doing CT scans, MRI’s , etc, etc. I decided to try gf and guess what I ‘fixed’ myself!!

  133. I’ve never tried Hazelnut flour – so I would start with that. I find it a bit funny that you’re talking about Bob’s Red Mill and there is a King Arthur flour mug in the back of your muffin photo. LOL I like both companies!

    • LOL, that’s funny, I never even clicked to that. I think KAF is great but since I can’t use flour anymore, I just use some of their kitchen products!

  134. The first thing I’d make? A paleo coconut bread recipe I’ve had my eye on for a week now! But cupcakes isn’t out of the question, either ;)

  135. Jennifer Reda says:

    i’d make a coconut pie!!

  136. Tonnia Williams says:

    I love BMPs. I just bought some Xanthum Gum yesterday. :)

  137. Linda Gangitano says:

    My family also loves hazelnut and would start with the bundt cake

  138. Pamela Moore says:

    I would use the coconut for a crust for key lime pie!

  139. Happy birthday! I’d make the pancakes first. :-)

  140. Beth Endres says:

    Shredded coconut is a staple for my Low Carb, High Protein Energy Bars. Can’t make it through the day without!

  141. I hope that you had a FABULOUS 40th!! I agree, giving the “perfect” gift is the best feeling!

  142. Happy birthday Carolyn!! Hope you’re enjoying it :) I’d try your coconut flour pancakes – I’m still trying to perfect a recipe and these look absolutely scrumptious.

  143. Jill Hartley says:

    I would love to make bread or muffins first!!!

  144. I would love to try the Hazelnut flour — I have fallen in love with the Bob’s almond flour/meal and would love to try others. Your blog is my favorite — I think we have the same tastes! :-)

  145. Happy Birthday!! the food looks amazing as always..

  146. I would make one of your brilliant recipes of course :)

  147. Ouida Lampert says:

    I didn’t know about the hazelnut meal, so the first thing I would make would be something using that. Maybe a flourless nut torte. Yum.

  148. Been trying to cut back on flour, this would help me expand!

  149. I love BRM. This is a great prize. I also love going to the Mill in Oregon, lots of fun.

  150. I would love to try your cake recipe with hazelnuts.

  151. Julie Richardson says:

    Happy Birthday! The Coconut Flour Pancakes look delicious! I will definitely have to try this recipe. Thanks!

  152. stephanie clark says:

    Your Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake sounds perfect for my in-laws. They love anything hazelnut and I love making bundts for company.

  153. Happy Birthday! What birthday cake did you bake yourself? I’m dying to make that chocolate hazelnut bundt cake!

  154. Oh, I think I would make that bundt cake first….but muffins, coconut bread and cookies afterward. I forgot how much I missed my wheat-based bundt cake – I would love a g-f alternative.

  155. I love to make granola energy bites and have used Bob’s Flax Seed Meal in them before! They have such great products. Thanks for sharing, Carolyn! Hope you had a very happy birthday.

  156. I’ve always wanted to try the hazelnut, so that would be first since most of the other products I use regularly.

  157. Many happpy returns! I’ll have to try the hazelnut Bundt cake. It looks awesome! I just sent my daughter a Bob’s Red Mill care package! Her birthday is next week, and she’s been doing so well on low Carb that I made her promise to make herself a birthday cake from your website!

  158. Dinah Sutton says:

    All of your recipes look awesome…I love the macaroons…

  159. I’m not sure, but I have their bread flour in my bread machine right this min.

  160. I haven’t tried any of the low-carb flours or mixes. I am craving cake so much these days, and I have an amazing looking strawberry cake pinned on Pinterest I really want to try!

  161. Marion Summers says:

    Definitely cranberry macaroons. Also need to try xanthene gum.

  162. Gina Jester says:

  169. Don’t know what I would bake, but sure it would be interesting! Lol……HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

  170. The Cranberry Almond Macaroons will be the 1st recipe I’ll try!!

  171. Laura Ann Glover says:

    I love Flax in my shakes! I can not weight to try Coconut Flour in a cake!

  172. Sunshine Schulenberg says:

    That Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake looks quite yummy. I might have to make some now! :) Happy Birthday!

  173. Mmmmm…I have my eye on that Hazelnut bundt. YUM!

  174. Joy Denise says:

    I would start with that Hazelnut bundt cake! There are a number of your recipes I would like to try! Happy Birthday!

  175. Happy Birthday! I have a soft spot for coconut macaroons, so that would probably be my first go-to recipe!

  176. Judy Snitchler says:

    I definitely make muffins! I use the flax seed all the time in my shakes. I just grind them in the blender before I add my liquid and other ingredients.

  177. If I won your giveaway, I would make those delicious looking Macaroons. Thanks for sharing your birthday!

  178. I’ve only ever used their flaxseed, but I’m getting back into low carb and eager to try some other products!

  179. Being unfamiliar with these products, I don’t know what I would make. If I was lucky enough to win, I would consider it a chance to learn. I’d have to google up some ideas and try them.

  180. Pancakes would be on top of the list!

  181. First would be some kind of banana muffin with hazelnut meal and flax…and then some cookies of course. :)

  182. Cookies likely……:)

  184. just made a hazlenut cake last night and it was yummo. I love baking it’s nice that these product are easily found.

  186. I’ve wanted to try the hazelnut bundt cake for a while…so that one!

  187. Karlise G says:

    I think I’d have to go with pancakes or maybe some kind of bread so I could have toast with butter or something to dip in my egg yolks. Mmm. I miss eggs on top of buttered bread.

  188. I love Bob’s Red Mill Flaxseed Meal and Coconut Flour – I use them constantly for baking and for breakfast =) Would love the chance to try their Shredded Coconut and Hazelnut Meal!!

  189. Happy birthday!! Your hazelnut chocolate chip bundt cake looks like a good place to start!

    Since I went low carb, I’ve been missing pancakes. So I’d definitely first try the Light and Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes. Love Bob’s Red Mill Products as part of my low carb pantry! Actually just going to make your Almond-Crusted Butter Cake – again! Have made it at least a dozen times now – loooooooove it!

  241. Dita MacDonald says:

    Pumpkin “Bran” Muffins. Thanks for the opportunity to win the giveaway. I love all your recipes!!!!!

  242. Margaret Crook says:

    I’m new to the whole low-carb scene, and as of recent I’ve realized the overwhelming demand for flour and other products that Bob’s Red Mill has in stock. As they run a bit pricey, I have to hold myself back from buying as much as I’d like– I would definitely love to make more, and be able to try new recipes from your site (which I am in love with!) Thank you so much for all of the delicious recipes!

  243. Bake more low carb goodies!

  244. Brownie cheesecake for sure

  245. Happy Belated 40th Birthday! Just have to say thank you, thank you, thank you for all the wonderful recipes you give us :)

  246. Oh I would most likely make a Hazelnut Chocolate Chip bunt cake! Looks way to sinful :) Then some coconut flour brownies, and I love making “Muffin in a Minute” buns with flaxseed for my egg muffin sammies in the morning or for my bacon cheeseburgers!

  247. Happy 40th birthday, Delicious. If I won I would like to try Bobs red mills coconut flour.

  248. Aww happy birthday- life is just beginning ;) I’ll be 42 on Saturday :(

  249. Jennifer says:

    Happy Birthday…belated as it is.

  251. Dyanne Spease says:

    I am sooo missing some FLUFFY pancakes, lol.

  252. Thanks for the generous giveaway! I’d make some chive and cheddar biscuits, Red Lobster- style.

  253. Pancakes or muffins!

  254. Hazelnut meal? Yes, please! I haven’t seen it here but since I discovered hazelnuts by using them in the Chocolate Nut Energy Bar, I will be scouring HEB’s shelves for it! Let’s see, sitting on my counter, I have Bob’s Coconut Flour and Xanthum gum out to make pancakes. In my fridge, I have open packages of the regular flaxseed meal (I go through the nut bars like they are candy, wait, they kinda are!) and the golden flaxseed meal (make pumpkin “bran” muffins last week). I have new packages of gluten free oats (I keep thinking I will figure out oatmeal cookies one of these days) and almond meal (absolutely perfect in your gingerbread scones). As for your 40th, all I can say is – Welcome to the 40s! Halfway through mine and, I can honestly say, I have LOVED my 40s. Happy Birthday, indeed!

  255. I found your website in Dr William Davis’ book, Wheat Belly. I can hardly wait to try some of your recipes. I think the first will be pancakes. Thanks for the blog! You have done the hard work. I will reap the rewards of it.

  256. I would make the coconut pancakes!

  257. Linda Thompson says:

    Oh, I would love to try the shredded coconut to make the Cranberry Almond Macaroons…those look so good!
