4 Best Flours for Homemade Paleo Bread
1. Almond Flour
As the name suggests, almond flour is made from blanched, finely ground almonds. The flour is relatively high in protein and also contains many other nutrients such as Vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and iron to name a few.
Substituting wheat flour with almond flour can however be tricky as the almond flour is gluten free. This means that if you are adapting a recipe, the consistency of the end product could be quite different. Without the gluten you will lose some elasticity.
The down side is that almond flour, by nature, is at least twice as expensive as traditional cake flour but by making it at home you can cut costs. The added advantage is that you can make ahead of time and your do-it-yourself flour will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months at a time. If you are using the flour from your freezer, simply remove the amount you need. Allow it to stand for 20 minutes and it’s ready to go.
2. Coconut Flour
Coconut flour is made from the dried out pulp of a coconut. It is a delicious gluten free, Paleo suitable flour. It is also a healthy source of fibre, protein and fat.
In terms of baking with coconut flour it is important to realize that adapting recipes can be tricky due to how absorbent coconut flour is. Coconut flour absorbs an incredible amount of liquid, so you can work on using a 1/3rd of the amount of coconut flour in comparison to ordinary flour.
Another fact to be aware of is that most recipes using coconut flour normally contain lot of eggs! This is necessary to bind the ingredients in the recipe together.
Tip: There are hundreds of tried and tested recipes out there, rather follow one of these Paleo coconut bread recipes here, and avoid expensive an disappointing results.
3. Cassava Flour
When it comes to consistency and texture, cassava flour is the one Paleo friendly flour, which behaves most like wheat flour. This makes it a favorite flour to make Paleo breads with.
With most recipes you will be able to use a 1: 1 replacement ratio, making our lives so much easier!
An added bonus to being gluten free is that this flour also supplies a welcome alternative to people who suffer from nut allergies. It really is a winning flour substitute.
There is a downside to utilizing this flour. It has a high carbohydrate content. If you are monitoring your sugar and carbohydrate intake very closely and are not particularly very active it would be wise to consume products made with this flour, in moderation.
4. Tigernut Flour
Surprisingly, despite the name, this flour is actually not made from a nut but rather a small root. It is therefore highly suitable for those who struggle with nut allergies.
Tigernuts were originally found in Northern Africa and the Mediterranean. If we had to go back a few million years, Tigernuts would have made up about 80% of our Paleo diet.
Tigernuts not only contain fibre, iron and potassium but also act as a functional food, a prebiotic (fuel for the good bacteria in your gut to thrive).
A second advantage is that this flour can be used in a 1:1 ratio when adapting your favorite bread recipe.
