Super-Fine Almond Flour is my favorite flour for vegan, gluten-free, and grain-free baking! Also perfect for anyone paleo, keto, and oil-free.
If you’ve been here a while you know that almond flour is a staple on my baking ingredients list.
When I started baking vegan and gluten-free baking, I was on the hunt for a flour replacement that wasn’t *always* oats.
That’s when I decided to try almond flour.
I was skeptical at first, because how can finely processed almonds *really* be a great substitute for regular flour?
Well, all I can say is that it’s magical.
Almond flour adds rich flavor, healthy fats, protein, and moisture to your healthified recipes.
My most favorite almond flour is Bob’s Red Mill Super-Fine Almond Flour.
It’s light, fluffy, nutty, and extremely versatile in its uses.
For the most part, I use almond flour as an even substitute for regular flour when creating my recipes.
If you’re looking for a less moist batter, try doing a mix of almond and oat flour— my signature move!
Bob’s Red Mill has a Super-Fine Almond Flour made from blanched whole almonds that has a golden hue and a Super-Fine Almond Flour made from un-blanched whole almonds that has a slightly speckled textures look.
I usually gravitate towards the former in my recipes because it mimics the appearance of regular flour so looks more attractive in baked goods!
If you’re making a deeper toned chocolate recipe, though, you won’t be able to tell the difference.
If you’ve browsed the blog some you also know that I love my baked goods to be oil-free when possible!
Almond flour definitely lends itself to oil-free baking because the natural fats and oils from the blended almonds are released during recipe creation. It’s also great for anyone grain-free, paleo, and keto.
I always grab a couple bags when I’m at Whole Foods to keep on hand for recipe testing!
I even have a special place in my cupboard to house my Almond Flour stash and when it starts to get low I know it’s time for another trip to Whole Foods to replenish.
Luckily, Whole Foods is only 10 minutes away from my house and I can make a beeline for the baking aisle. 🙂
And hey, almond flour isn’t just for baking!
Try it in no-bake recipes, and savory entrees, too.
