Here are 9 of the best ever Keto almond flour recipes of all kinds. I have recipes for pancakes, crackers, breadsticks, bagels & more. These recipes are the best of the best, all from some of the best Keto recipe bloggers in the world.
Almond flour is carb free because it is made from a nut instead of a grain. It is really easy to cook with. It’s probably the most used Keto flour available. You can buy it but it is possible to make your own by blending regular almonds in a high powered blender (see below).
Is Almond Flour Keto?
Since it is just ground almonds, it has the nutrition of almonds. So 6 grams of carbs and 3 grams of fiber, which is 3 net carbs per serving. You may be surprised at how many carbs they actually have. It’s really not a TON but you do need to be careful to not eat too much. But other than that, it is an excellent choice on the Keto diet and is one of the most popular low carb flours.
Almond flour is blanched (skin removed), ground almonds. That’s it. Almond meal is ground almonds with the skins left on and is a bit coarser.
The flour is best for baking, since it’s lighter in texture and color and will make your food smoother and fluffier. Almond meal is usually a little cheaper, so use it for things like breading. The finer the almonds are ground, the better your baked goods will turn out.
You can make almond meal at home by carefully blending almonds – just don’t blend too much or you’ll get almond butter. I use the Vitamix dry container for that. I haven’t been able to figure out how to easily make my own because of the whole blanching thing, but I would love to know if anyone has any ideas on how to do that.
It’s a popular Paleo flour because it can more or less be subbed 1:1 for wheat flour, although you usually have to make several adjustments to the recipe, like a little more egg.
It makes things have a nutty flavor, which usually is a good thing.
Almonds contain healthy fats and are high in protein and low in carbs.
It blends well with other Paleo flours
It can make your baked goods dense (especially if you use almond meal) and crunchy, so if you don’t like crunchy cookies, this may not be the flour for you.
Like all Paleo flours, no gluten means no elasticity.
Well, it’s obviously not good if you have a nut allergy.
You can easily eat way too many almonds all at once. For example, a cup of almond flour contains 90 nuts. You have to be careful because it’s easy to not realize how many you are eating.
Almonds can cause inflammation.
Almonds can be hard for many people to digest, especially in the quantities you tend to eat with when it is made into a flour.
It burns easily, so lower the oven temperature by about 25°F to 50°F and bake for slightly longer. And keep an eye on your baked goods because they can go from not done to overdone really fast.
I’ve wasted a lot of it because it went bad. Once opened, it will keep for a month in the refrigerator and 6 to 8 months in the freezer. If you store it in the freezer, just remove the portion you need for your recipe and let it come to room temperature for 20 minutes.
Flour vs. Meal
If you’re wondering there is a difference between almond meal and almond flour , almond meal is not blended or ground as much so it has a rougher texture. The other difference is almond meal is made with the outside peeling left one so you’ll see little pieces of brown in it. It has a much finer texture and it what you want to use in making any of these recipes unless otherwise specified.
