Nutritious Low Carb Flour – Almond Flour
Almond flour can be used as a low carb flour substitute for wheat in most recipes, and it’s a great way to add flavour and nutrients to your favourite dishes.
Almond flour is a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour, making it an excellent choice for people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Almond flour is also high in fibre and protein, making it a nutritious addition to your diet. Use almond flour as a one-for-one substitution for regular flour in baking recipes, or try using it to thicken sauces or gravy.
If you are looking for almond flour, this product is right for you.
Allergens: This almond flour is packed in a facility handling gluten, soya, milk, sesame seeds, tree nuts and sulphites.

Keto Peanut Butter Biscuits (makes 8 large biscuits)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/3 cup erythritol
1 cup almond flour
3/4 t baking soda
1/2 t vanilla essence
1/8 t salt (only use if your peanut butter is unsalted)
1/2 t xanthan gum (optional – helps the biscuits to keep their shape)
- Preheat oven to fan-bake 180°C.
- Line a tray with baking paper. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients: peanut butter, melted coconut oil, erythritol, almond meal, baking soda, salt, xanthan gum, and vanilla essence.
- Combine until it forms a thick dough.
- Divide dough into eight large balls (or 12 smaller balls).
- Place each ball on the prepared tray. Flatten slightly with your palm, then use a fork to flatten more and create a lovely fork print on top of your peanut butter biscuits. The biscuits won’t expand while baking, so there is no need to leave more than half a thumb space between each biscuit.
- Bake for 10 minutes or until sides are golden. The biscuits will look uncooked; they will be VERY soft after baking.
- Remove the tray from the oven and let them cool down for at least 10 minutes on the tray at room temperature to harden.
- Carefully slide a spatula under each biscuit and transfer them one by one onto a rack to cool down for ten more minutes.
- Store in a biscuit jar – glass or metal – for up to 2 weeks.
- These peanut butter biscuits are mainly made of healthy fats, don’t contain eggs, and need the two steps of cooling down to go hard and crunchy.
- Coconut sugar would be a good Paleo alternative (but not sugar-free, so it is not suitable for a keto diet). Use the same amount as erythritol.
