Almond Flour

Looking for a low carb and gluten-free alternative to all-purpose flour? Try this Paleo-friendly flour at home with just one ingredient: whole almonds.

Directions

  3. Remove the lid and scrape the sides of the container with a spatula. Repeat the same process until desired consistency is achieved.

Chef's Notes

  • A finely ground almond flour is a great baking substitute if you need a light, gluten-free and protein-filled flour.
  • Almond flour with a coarser grind may be used as a breading, binder, or wherever a coarsely ground flour is needed - just be careful when cooking it, as it will burn more easily than other flours.
