Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 4.40.36 PMAlmond flour is an excellent gluten free and grain free baking option. Its protein and fat content makes it an ideal option for quick breads, muffins, cookies and bars. The protein, fat and fiber in almond flour will also contribute to satiety, the feeling of fullness between meals, which can assist with weight management. In many recipes, almond flour can replace wheat flour in a one-to-one ratio for seamless substitution.photo

You should store almond flour in the refrigerator to preserve freshness and extend its shelf life. It will keep for up to 12 months if stored properly.

Nut flours burn easily, so most of recipes will call for a lower baking temperature and longer time than you would use with a normal wheat flour recipe. Keep a close eye on your baked goods though, because all ovens heat differently and I’ve definitely burnt cookies a few times, including the first batch of cookies I made yesterday!

Morning Pep Almond flour comes in two sizes: 2 lb. and 5 lb. bags. Both are available on Amazon. Five pounds might seem like a lot but if you use it often enough it is well worth spending $40 on this size. In the end that is only $8 per pound, a price you will not find at any grocery store.

Now for the giveaway! One lucky reader will win a 2 lb. bag of Morning Pep Almond Flour!

I've been on a gluten free diet since January 2009. It's been an adventure, and a challenge at times. I love to go to new restaurants and try new foods, and being gluten free can make eating out difficult at times. But I will not let my dietary restrictions get in my way of finding new restaurants and products. These are my stories of being a young women in a big city, eating out and trying new foods, all while NOT eating gluten. Like I said, it's an adventure and you are welcome to come along... Please note that as I try to eat gluten free 100% of the time, my intolerance is not as severe as others so please use caution when dining at restaurants that are not certified gluten free.
