Almond Flour

Almond flour is fast becoming a go-to alternative to regular flour for many dishes that require some element of the ingredient, most notably breadcrumbs or flour.

A much better alternative, almond flour or almond meal is so simple to make and provides far more nutrition to your dish than your every day white or brown flour.
It is also suitable as a part of a gluten free or low carbohydrate diet as it is literally just almonds.
Depending on what kitchen appliances are available to you, the simple method requires you to mill your almonds until you reach a flour-like consistency.
I use the Nutribullet with the milling blade to make mine but a pestle and mortar or coffee grinder are also suitable.

Check out my recipe for Chicken Dippers using a spiced and seasoned almond flour to coat the chicken strips. They are absolutely delish and taste a lot naughtier than they actually are.

Any of my recipes that have breadcrumbs or flour as an ingredient can use almond flour as an alternative but it is totally up to you which one you want to use.

I personally try to always use the almond flour just because Bread and I are not friends since I entered my mid-twenties.
