Try Baking with Almond Flour!
Almond flour is made from ground sweet almonds and is an amazing gluten-free substitute for traditional baking flour in banana breads or any baked treat that benefits from extra moisture. It also adds a rich nutty flavour. We’ve even tried it in crepes – delicious!In addition to being gluten-free, almonds are high in monounsaturated fats which have been associated with reduced risk of heart disease, packed with vitamin E which is great for your skin, and are also shown to lower cholesterol levels. Lastly, almonds are high in magnesium and potassium with a quarter cup containing 62mg and 162mg respectively.We recommend Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour, available in-store.
