What the heck do I do with almond flour???

I purchased a bag of almond flour and I have no idea what to do with it. I thought maybe it would be better than white flour for breading and frying, but then I read almond flour isn't a good choice for that purpose.

So now I'm stuck with a whole bag of the stuff and I have no clue to how to use it.

Any suggestions?

It's a PITA. Keto friendly flour substitute. when breading it either clumps or doesn't stick. there are some tricks to frying with it.

I've heard the same thing from a few people, that they don't like working with it. If I can't find something to do with it, I'll probably just pitch it out.

Thanks, GG. The World's Easiest Cookies looks delicious. I think I'm going to give that recipe a shot.

Will do. I've got a full plate of indoor activities/chores for this weekend, so maybe next weekend I'll give them a try.

Thanks again

add it to rolled oats, rolled barley, wheat germ, dried fruit, honey, brown sugar, butter, and vanilla, or maple to make granola bars. You can also add almond flour to hot cereals to add protien.

Any recipe that calls for almonds or other nuts.

I like to replace some of the AP flour with almond flour in Cranberry, Tangerine (or orange) & Nut Bread or Banana Nut Bread recipes.

That's a good idea as well.

I originally bought the almond flour to see if I could replace white flour with a healthier alternative when making gravies and rouxs, etc. But after doing some reading, I discovered that was a bad idea.

I was going to ask them same thing

Maybe she misread and thought it said almond butter? I'm interested to know the answer to that one!
