The Benefits Of Almond Meal For The Base
Have you ever baked with almond flour? because sometimes I think my daughters live of it… Almond meal is definitely one of my go-to’s when it comes to baking. Not only is it easy to work with, it’s low carb, gluten free and full of healthy fats!
Almonds are a wonderful source of calcium, fiber and magnesium so replacing processed wheat with them is a no-brainer for me. Plus, I love the nutty flavor and the “lightness” they give when you bake with them (or make tasty almond pancakes)! I can eat oodles of cookies and not have the stuffed, sluggish feeling I get from regular flour.
The other reason I love using almond meal is for my kiddos. Growing babes need nutrient dense foods but also calorie dense ones in order to grow. Almond meal provides both so it’s an easy win for me as a mama.
