Smile Almond flour

Hi everyone. Still quite new at this and just another little question for you guys. Tomorrow is day 13 of induction. Going very well. I've lost 6 pounds so delighted. I've just been looking up recepies here and found a lot of really yummy looking ones that use almond flour. Have any of you used it. Is it nice. Is it ok on low carb and lastly is it easy to find. I'm guessing I'd find it in my local health shop. Any almond flour advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

You can also buy ground almonds (ie almond flour) in any supermarket in the UK in the baking section. It's usually in 100g bags.

Thanks I checked my local supermarket but couldn't find it. I'll have to check the bigger supermarkets. Is it the same as ground almonds.

Yes it is the same as ground almonds.

There is another product you can choose to use wich is the by-product of almond milk, and is almonds without the fat.

But ground almonds work great :-)

Some health food stores will carry it in the US and it is beginning to hit grocery stores in Alberta after several requests. Yummy but the carbs add up.

It's from a blog called "all day I dream about food" and they're called maple pecan scones. There are loads of really nice things on her blog.

Since you are new here, I'll mention you should look at the date of posts. This one's over 2 years old. I've made the same mistake - even recently!

My response is relevant today and I've found old posts on here useful for me though I'm new. I'm simply paying it forward.

I am with you Delectable - old posts have been helpful to me too. I find the flour at most Canadian grocery stores now. I guess people have been asking for it. At one time it was only at health food stores.
