Baking With Almond Flour – A Great Alternative

Have You Been Wondering How to Bake With Almond Flour? Try This Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe!

Almond flour has increased in popularity lately as it is a good alternative to baking without grains. Additionally, it’s also gluten-free and low carb. It’s made from almonds that are finely ground into a flour like consistency. Enjoy guilt free baked goods using this versatile and nutritionally rich flour.

I must say I have found it a huge benefit because of having to eat a gluten free diet. I think I would eat this even if I wasn’t on the gluten free diet, it just tastes so yummy.

Top 5 Reasons to Choose Organic Almond Flour for Baking

  1. It is a whole food, nothing added and processed, only almonds
  2. It is nutritionally rich and a complex carbohydrate unlike most wheat flours
  3. Great for diabetes management, heart health, and several kinds of cancer
  4. Excellent energy boosters due to a golden combination of macro and micro nutrients, healthy fats, and riboflavin (vitamin B2)
  5. Superior choice for those on paleo, low-carb, and gluten-free diets

Tips on Baking

  • Can be used to make cookies, breads, muffins, most anything you’d bake with wheat flour
  • Your baked products will be more dense with almond flour than with wheat
  • Keep it in well-sealed containers in the fridge after opening
  • It is normal that the batter prepared with almond flour is not the same as wheat flour, it’s thicker
  • Substituting almond for wheat flour in a recipe may require eggs, flax, or some binding agent
