10 Mouthwatering Almond Flour Recipes

Apr 7, 2016

The blanched almond flour is one of the healthiest alternatives to wheat flour. More and more people start using almond flour in their desserts because it is low in carbs and high in protein and omega 3 fatty acids. Even though it is not the best ingredient for yeasted recipes, almond flour works perfectly in most dessert recipes, including muffins, pancakes, cookies, and cakes. Here are some awesome almond flour recipes for you to try today:
