Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour is one of our most popular gluten free, low carb flours, and we pride ourselves on the excellent performance and flavor of this high quality product. Whole blanched almonds are ground into a fine meal that lends a nutty flavor and moist texture to baked goods.
Baking with almond flour is simple: explore our recipe tab for dozens of delicious flour recipes, from almond flour pancakes to cookies, coffee cake, quick breads, muffins and more. As a general rule of thumb, you can also replace 25% of the all-purpose flour in your baking recipes with almond flour to add a wonderful texture and flavor while reducing the total carbohydrates.
Not only is almond flour a traditional choice for delicacies like French macarons and financiers, but this nutty meal can be used in savory applications, as well. Use it as a low carb flour alternative in place of bread crumbs in meatballs, or as a coating for chicken and fish.
To keep it at peak freshness, almond flour and meal is best stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
Almonds are known for being nutritious and satisfying, providing vitamin E, protein, fiber and monounsaturated fats. Not only do almonds offer protein, healthy fats and fiber, they are also very low in carbohydrates and inherently gluten free. This makes them a great choice for those following paleo or low-carb diets. Plus, there are so many delicious ways to eat them! You can snack on them by the handful, or throw them into your food processor and press a button: voila, you’ll have ground almonds—and then fresh almond butter, if you keep going!
Almond flour is also a popular selection for gluten free and paleo flour blends: it pairs especially well with other alternative baking flours like coconut and tapioca starch.
