Why Almond Flour
While your standard old school all-purpose flour weighs in at a whopping 100 grams of carbs per cup almond flour has only six making it one the best grain free alternatives available for those of us on the ketogenic diet.
But wait it gets better.
Almond flour is also high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats making it a super food for the keto diet that keeps us feeling full while keeping our bodies in ketosis. High in magnesium and rich in vitamins and nutrients like vitamin E, Almond Flour offers a vast number of health benefits from improved blood pressure to improved blood glucose numbers.
Almond flour is very versatile, and most keto almond flour recipes are freezer friendly. Storing almond flour is easy-just put it in an airtight container after you’ve opened it. (You can refrigerate to help it keep, but this is not mandatory.)
Oh, and here’s a tip for those of you who (like me) don’t always read the instructions before you begin: most of the time your eggs, cream cheese, almond milk, etc. need to be room temperature when cooking with almond flour-otherwise your batter will be clumpy.
Ok, ready to try some fantastic keto almond flour recipes for the foods you thought were forbidden for life? I figured you might!
