One of the cooking goals that I’ve been working on is working with flour alternatives. There are so many varieties of flours (almond flour, quinoa flour, coconut flour, oat flour, plus so many more!) on the shelves in the grocery store and I’ve been intrigued. Mainly, because I am a food science nerd and I want to learn and understand their baking properties, but also I think many of us are trying to trim back on the amount of refined grains we are consuming (ie. white flour), so it’s been a fun challenge baking with these flour alternatives.

I’ve quickly learned that these alternative flours do not have that perfect 1:1 ratio. FYI, coconut flour sucks up so much moisture. I tried baking cookies with coconut flour and when I picked one up it crumbled right in my hand. Note to self: Add more liquid and maybe pair coconut flour with other flours too. (I’m still working on that recipe!)

I had received a bag of almond flour when I was on the trip with California Almond Board and I feel like it’s been calling my name to bake with it every time I open my pantry and see it.
