Almond Flour Baking & Cooking Extravaganza

As the holidays approach, you’ll find us in the kitchen, baking and cooking up a delicious storm.  Almond flour is one ingredient that we always keep on hand.  This gluten-free flour is one of our most popular and most versatile flours.

Recently, Chef Joe of PBS’s Taste This TV used our almond flour in three tasty dishes: almond flour encrusted chicken, almond flour breaded pork, and almond flour muffins.

After cooking with our almond flour, Chef Joe had this to say:

“Nuts.com Almond Flour is filled with flavor, including a delicious nutty taste.  This flavor packed flour can’t becompared to other products of its kind.  Its nutty taste blends well with so many other foods regardless whether you are cooking or baking with it.  When using Almond Flour the food comes out so moist, light, and tasty.  Even if you do not eat gluten free you will fall in love Nuts.com Almond Flour.  Not only is it delicious, but also filled with great vitamins and proteins.  Whether you put it in pancakes or use it to fry up chicken, you will not be disappointed!” 

Thanks, Chef Joe!

Here are a few ideas for using almond flour in your holiday (and everyday) cooking and baking:

  • Substitute almond flour for regular flour or bread crumbs when breading fish and meats.  Not only does almond flour add a bit of texture, it contains healthy fats, vitamin E, and plant-based proteins.  That’s why the flour is one of our Health Nut’s Top Picks!
  • As a substitute for wheat flour, almond flour adds depth to gluten-free pancakes, gluten-free muffins, gluten-free chocolate scones, and gluten-free shrimp cakes.
  • If you’re baking an apple crisp, substitute almond flour for regular flour to make the “crisp” part of the recipe even nuttier and more nutritious.  This is one dessert that’s melt-in-your-mouth-good without being sinful to your waistline.

If you’re just getting started with gluten-free baking and gluten-free cooking, you will love our gluten-free flour bundle, which includes The Essential Gluten-Free Baking Guide Part 1, as well as one pound each of our almond flour, coconut flour, and millet flour.

    Just make sure your nut-allergic friends are aware of this hidden source of nuts!

    Thanks again, my ‘nutty’ friends for the great almond flour suggestions. I have hesitated using it in the past as I was
    unsure of the measurement ( if it had to be a certain proportion to regular flour) but you have cleared that detail and
    I am now more confident and will ‘ go to town ‘ in my baking, etc. You are a godsend in so many ways!

      Hi Raquel, it depends on the pie recipe you’re using! The recipe should let you know how long to bake the pie, and at what temperature.

    FYI……our daughter is deathly allergic to tree nuts but can eat almonds with no problem since they are a fruit (part of the peach family) and not a tree nut. I suppose one could be allergic to almonds just as there are those with peanut allergies, but a treee nut allergic person normally is not allergic to almonds. If the almond flour is made in the same factory as there are tree nuts….that is a different story.

      Hi Karen, excellent points — both that those with a peanut allergy can eat almond flour unless it’s packaged in a facility with peanut products, as ours is. If you have a hard time finding completely peanut-free packaged almond flour, we recommend grinding almonds finely in a food processor to make your own almond flour!
