There are so many better-for-you flours out there – we’re talking flours made from nuts, whole grains, coconuts, etc. – that you can easily find in your grocery store and have fun experimenting with. Get your cookie, gluten-free, and healthy-cooking fix by stocking up on these six gluten-free baking flours instead of all-purpose.
#1 Almond Flour.
Almond flour is considered the king of gluten-free flours. Besides giving your product a nutty, balanced flavor, the finely ground nut offers added moisture and tenderness to the recipes that use it. It’s a good choice for use in baked goods with a light crumb texture: pancakes, muffins, cakes, etc. You can also use almond flour as a replacement for bread crumbs or to thicken sauces and soups.
