Almond flour is currently being promoted as a marvellous substitute for ordinary flour. Anyone in South Africa who is on a diet, knows about Tim Noakes. He advocates cutting carbs and using protein products instead.
I believe almond flour is high in protein and contains little or no sugar or fats which makes it the healthy option.
Because of all of the publicity, I wanted to try it. So, yesterday, when walking past our local health shop, I saw almond flour advertised on the blackboard outside the store and went into the shop and bought a bag.
However, I misread the sign! I thought it said R25.00 for 500g! When the assistant handed me the packet of almond flour which I had asked for, the label said R125.00.
I nearly refused the flour but pride held me back. So now I’m the owner of a bag of almond flour and I’m not sure whether to store it in my baking cupboard or pack away in our household safe!
I’ve never heard of it. How did you like it?
Very nice to use in certain breads, quite heavy though
