Almond Flour is made from almonds that have been blanched to remove the skins, then ground to a fine texture that is great for baking. It is a go-to ingredient for gluten free and low carb baked goods, and a must-have for paleo and other grain free baking recipes.
Bob's Red Mill Almond Flour is ground from whole, blanched sweet almonds. Almonds are notoriously healthy nuts providing a good amount of manganese and vitamin E , as well as a healthy serving of monounsaturated fats in each 1/4 cup serving. Not only do almonds have a healthy boost of protein, they are also very low in carbohydrates and inherently gluten free.*
Eating whole almonds is terrific, but did you know that adding almond flour to your baking and cooking can bring the health benefits of almonds to your diet, as well as cutting back on carbohydrate consumption? Replacing 25% of the flour in your baking with almond flour will add wonderful texture and flavor while reducing the total carbohydrates. This makes it perfect for those following a low carbohydrate or paleo diet.
Almond flour is produced in Bob's Red Mill's gluten free facility, making it an ideal addition to a gluten free diet. In addition to low carbohydrate baking, almond flour is wonderful for use in French macarons and financiers, pie crusts, cakes, cookies, pancakes and quick breads. Almond flour can be used in savory applications, as well. Use almond flour in place of bread crumbs in meatballs, or as a coating for chicken and fish.
