Natureland Almond Protein Flour 200g
Almond flour has been a popular alternative choice to carbohydrate-containing wheat flour in the health and fitness community as it is low in carbohydrates and higher in healthy fatty acids. Almond flour is also often used by those who don’t tolerate gluten-containing flours that cause digestive distress.
Almond protein flour has the same benefits, with even more to offer from its high protein content.
Made from finely ground almonds that are defatted using a simple process that doesn’t involve using any chemicals, almond protein flour is far higher in protein than regular almond flour, leaving a superior product without any change in the taste and texture you have come to enjoy when using regular almond flour. Almond flour is also low in phytic acid as the skins, which contain the antinutrient that may alter the absorption of nutrients in certain plants, are removed during the blanching process, which is the step required before defatting and grinding.
Almond protein flour can be used in any of your trusted recipes ranging from baked goods, to sauces, salad dressing and even to add to smoothies and more. Because it offers such a great protein source, it is a more versatile form of almond flour. With 5g of fat and 20g of protein per serving, it tailors to a wider range of people for example, those looking to boost their protein intake, lose weight without going onto a strict keto diet, and even as an additional protein source for those who are already following a keto eating plan.
Almond protein flour may be finer than your regular flour and other almond flour options so it is important to measure the almond protein flour exactly, especially when using it in recipes. The best way to do so is to scoop the desired amount of almond protein flour into a bowl, fluff it up with a fork to ensure it is not compressed, and then remeasure the desired amount being sure not to pack it down.
Use almond protein flour to make these simple protein pancakes:
- 1 cup protein almond flour - note that this should be loosely packed
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- ⅓ cup almond milk
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil
- Mix all of the ingredients into a bowl
- Pour 30 ml of batter into circles in a heated non-stick pan
- Cover and allow to cook for 1.5-2 minutes until bubbles form in the batter
- Flip the pancakes and cook for another minute until browned
- Repeat until all batter is used
- Serve with fresh fruit and yogurt if desired
