Free-from foods are finally reaching the mainstream, and whether you eat gluten or not, having a few gluten-free recipes on hand are great for enjoying treats that are a little more nutrient-dense and awesome if you have someone over who doesn’t eat gluten. Plus, in my opinion, all of these recipes taste even better with Almond Flour than they do normal flour! How great is that? We don’t compromise the flavor around here!
I LOVE a good, crispy piece of pizza. If you want to achieve a crispier slice at home, consider using almond flour for your bake! Using almond flour instead of normal flour helps keep the crust more crumbly and stiff. It’s always awful when homemade pizza just flops and can never hold its shape, so this is an amazing solution! Also, we love the versatility of a pizza night anyway, so if you’re hosting lots of pals over for pizza, having almond flour dough as an option is a great way to make your next pizza night even more delicious for everyone.
Edible Cookie Dough
Cookie dough is something that I can eat and eat and eat… and if you feel the same way, you might want to make this almond flour edible cookie dough. To make normal raw cookie dough edible, you’d normally have to put the flour into the oven first, to kill any bacteria that could cause sickness. But, with this recipe it is WAY easier! All you have to do is throw the ingredients together, chill (or not) and enjoy! If I had everything on hand, I’d have a hard time not making this recipe, it’s so, so good!
This recipe is naturally vegan and gluten free, and I’d never know because they taste just as good (maybe even better) than normal shortbread. The almond flour helps achieve the crumble and crisp that is characteristic of shortbread. On its own, the flavor of this shortbread is awesome! However, these cookies can be dressed up in lots of ways. Add chocolate, jam, or other toppings to spice up this recipe even more.
Chicken Pot Pie
To me, chicken pot pie is the ultimate comfort food. It’s savory, warm and delicious. And, who knew that it’d be even better with almond flour? Whoever came up with this recipe did! The crust of this chicken pot pie is flaky, crumbly, and delicious! Structurally, it works amazingly to create this delicious meal.
If there’s one thing I am, it is a waffle girl. I love waffles so much that I even named my guinea pig “waffles.” So, if you’re a waffle lover like me, there’s a big chance you’ll be a fan of these almond flour waffles. If you’ve ever wanted your waffles a bit crispier and golden without getting them slightly burnt, almond flour is the answer to all of your prayers, and with the syrup, you’d never know an alternative flour was used! This is the best recipe to start your day out.
