A Guide to Keto Flours
Obviously, you can’t bake with regular all-purpose wheat flour for you want to stay in ketosis but there are many low-carb flours suitable for Keto baking.
Almond Flour – Almond flour could be called the low-carb all-purpose flour. It can be found in almost any grocery store or it can be purchased online. It adds a great moist texture to Keto baked goods but its high fat content means that one to one substitution for all-purpose wheat flour is nearly impossible. It is generally necessary to add extra eggs or baking powder for structure because almond flour contains a lot of fat and no gluten. Another plus of almond flour is that the flavor is subtle and largely neutral, comparable to wheat flour.
Coconut Flour – Coconut flour is made from the by-product of coconut oil or coconut milk production. After most of the liquid or oil has been removed, the coconut meat that remains is ground and dehydrated to make coconut flour. Because it is dehydrated, it absorbs a lot of liquid and it generally best mixed with almond flour as in this recipe. By combining the two flours, it is possible to more closely mimic the effects of all-purpose wheat flour in baked goods. Coconut flour does impart a coconut taste, but this can be easily masked with bold seasonings.
Flax Meal – Flax meal is not generally suitable to be the primary flour in low-carb baking recipes, but it has two properties that make it invaluable for Keto baking. First, it has an earthy flavor that adds a lovely complexity to Keto breads and other baked goods. Second, it has egg-like properties and can be used to add structure in a baked good that includes other low carb flours such as almond flour.

- For garlic “cheese” bread, add two cloves of minced garlic to the dough and sprinkle with nutritional yeast before baking.
- For a fantastic spiced bread that would make great French toast, add 1 tablespoon cinnamon and ¼ each teaspoon ginger and nutmeg.
