Almond flour is a great gluten free flour used for baking cakes, breads, muffins, desserts, or used as thickeners in savory dishes. Almond flour is one of my favorite gluten free flours to use due to it’s high nutrient content, flavor, and texture which is very moist in baked goods. Almond flour also has a naturally sweet and nutty flavor that helps contribute to baked goods overall taste.
How to use | I store almond flour in an airtight mason jar in the pantry, if I have larger amounts I’ll keep the rest in the freezer to extend the use of it. Use in baking cookies, breads, muffins, pancakes, breads, etc.
