Elana Amsterdam is back on The Food Schmooze. Her book of recipes using high protein almond flour in place of white flour was a hit with us and our regular Food Schmooze listeners. So we invited Elana to join us again to talk about some of her recipe ideas.
We'll tell you all about why blanched almond flour is considered a superfood by some; how it differs from white wheat flour and how it registers on the glycemic index.
We're still excited about this because blanched almond flour makes a far better texture and flavor in baked goods. Anyone who can't have gluten or wheat knows how bad the texture can be using rice flour.
