Almond Flour Recipes

Almond Flour is one of the best low-carb flours to replace all-purpose flour in keto and gluten-free recipes.

It’s easy to find, tastes delicious and there’s an endless list of recipes you can make with it.

I’ve listed below my favorite Almond Flour Recipes to enjoy anything from a sweet breakfast treat to a yummy side dish, a classic bread loaf, or an almond flour cake.

Almond Flour

What Is Almond Flour?

Almond Flour is a low-carb flour made with ground almonds. It has just about 10 grams of net carbs per 100 grams (compared to more than 75 grams for all-purpose flour.

It is similar in use to coconut flour, but not interchangeable.

There are various types of ground almonds, that may have different names when purchased in grocery stores.

  • Almond Meal: almond meal is typically a coarser version of ground almond. While it works fine in some recipes, many almond flour recipes actually require a finer version.
  • Almond Flour: when called almond flour, ground almonds are most of the time much finer than in the almond meal alternative. It is the preferred option for almond flour recipes.

The other choice you might find is between blanched and unblanched almonds.

  • Blanched Almond Flour refers to a flour made from almonds that had their skin peeled generally by boiling.
  • Unblanched Almond Flour, on the other hand, is made with whole almonds with their brownish skin still on. As a result, unblanched almond flour is slighlty darker in taste.

There is almost no nutritional difference between the two, and any nutrients that are lost in the blanching process are likely to be lost in baking anyways.

When cooking, unblanched almond flour tends to give a slightly darker color as well as a mildly grittier texture to the food.

Is Almond Flour Healthy?

Almond flour is full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants (values are per 1/4 cup serving):

  • Minerals: Manganese (31% RDI), Magnesium (19% RDI), Copper (16% RDI), Phosphorous (13% RDI), Calcium, Iron
  • Vitamins: Vitamin E (35% RDI)
  • Macronutrients: Fat (14 grams), Net Carbs (2 grams), Fiber (3 grams), Protein (6 grams)

These properties may contribute to:

  • Lowering Blood Sugar: compared to many other flour, its low carbohydrates content makes almond flour one of the lowest carb flours. Magnesium found in almond flour is also known to help with lowering blood sugar levels.
  • Gluten-Free: Almond Flour has no gluten at all, so it’s suitable for celiac and gluten-intolerant people.
  • Lowers Bad Cholesterol: regular consumption of almonds (not just almond flour) has been linked to a reduction in LDL cholesterol that can cause heart disease.
  • Antioxidant: Vitamin E present in Almond Flour contributes to lowering the free radicals in the bloodstream which in turns reduces oxidative stress.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Almond Flour Gluten-Free?

Yes, almond flour doesn’t contain any gluten and is fine to consume for anyone with gluten intolerance or gluten allergies.

Can I Make My Own Almond Flour?

Yes, it’s possible to make your own almond flour by grounding almond in a strong food processor, but you might find it hard to get it as fine as a store-bought version.

Is Almond Meal The Same As Almond Flour?

No, almond meal is typically coarser than almond flour.

Can You Substitute Almond Flour For Regular Flour?

In many cases, almond flour can be substituted for regular flour at a 1:1 ratio but almond flour requires more binding agents than regular flour (typically eggs, flaxseed eggs, or even applesauce). So it’s not as simple as just swapping one flour for the other.

Yes, Almond Flour is one of the most keto-friendly flours with only 10 grams of net carbs per 100 grams (7.5 times less than all-purpose flour).

Does Almond Flour Go Bad?

Yes, almond flour can be spoilt by water, pantry bugs, or just oxidation. It has a shelf life of about a year, but it’s important to keep it in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight to keep it good for as long as possible.

Can Dogs Have Almond Flour?

Almonds Flour is safe for dogs, as any other almond product. However, keep in mind that chocolate and xylitol (a sugar-free sweetener occasionally used by keto dieters) are both potentially dangerous for dogs.

Is Almond Flour Good For Diabetics?

Yes, almond flour is a flour with one of the lowest Glycemic Indexes. As a result, it’s safe for diabetics in low amounts.
