Erythritol/Xylitol cookbooks

Can anyone recommend some cookbooks that don't use Splenda in their recipes and that also do not use white flour but almond flour or coconut flour? Thank you.

Look for paleo or primal cookbooks.
Don't worry about "sweetener specific" books, you can sub the sweetener of your choice for whatever they use.
The same goes for the extensive recipe resources here on the site, just use your sweetener of choice.

Dottie, I thought that sweeteners are not interchangeable, that some are sweeter than others. Is that not correct?

Some are but they have really "standardized" a lot of them.
Basically if something calls for "1 cup of splenda" you'll know it means however much of your sweetener equals 1 cup of sugar in sweetness.
It will be some experimenting but overall it shouldn't be too difficult to convert any recipes away from splenda to another sweetener

That's the part I don't understand. How will I know how much of my sweetener would equal that 1 cup of splenda.

Most packages will be very specific about the ratio needed to equal that amount of sugar.
Example: most packets of sweetener are "equal to the sweetness of 2tsp of sugar". Just check the sweetener you use. If it's not on the package, email the company and ask, they should be able to tell you

I am sure by now you have gotten some cookbooks. But I just got Elena's cooking with almond flour cookbook and her almond flour cupcake books. Both are very good!! And as Dottie said, you can sub out sweeteners to ones you use.

Elena's pantry is the website. Cannot link because it goes against TOS here.

The "wheat belly cookbook" has great recipes with both coconut and almond flour as well as 99% of his recipes use Stevia.
