This nutrient-packed, gluten-free flour allows us to have our (paleo) cake and eat it too. But let’s be honest, the stuff isn’t cheap (compared to regular old flour that you can find in the baking aisle) and there’s a learning curve to be able to bake with it.
Thankfully, there are a lot of people on the internet who want you to be able to whip up delicious foods with almond flour – while taking the difficulty out of it. Seriously – if you google “almond flour recipes” you won’t believe the amount of content you’ll find out there.
