  • Alternative flour options

    If I wanted to quit white flour for a more healthy alternative what options are there that are relatively easy to find and affordable?

    Well, that's the problem Mike. There are definitely healthier flour alternatives. That said, 1 - don't expect them to taste like the flour you're used to. In other words, if you enjoy a lot of baking you might find that your favorite foods taste "off". BTW that's not me trying to tell you not to buy it, I just mean it's important to prepare yourself for a surprise in taste. 2 - flour alternatives are typically much more expensive than white flour, by a lot, and for a much smaller amount.

    That said, some good alternatives you can look into include Almond Flour, Coconut Flour, Millet-based flour, flax seed flour.

      Whole wheat and whole grain are good, too...but, yeah, they aren't always easy to find and they are very expensive....especially if you are someone who uses flour a lot.

        I'm just going to put this out eating unbleached white flour really so bad for you? I mean, how much flour are you baking/cooking with that it matters for you to go out of your way to get complicated stuff? I get that it could be an issues if you have an allergy or something, but otherwise...

        Okay, opinion aside, I would recommend that if you want to find alternatives, maybe check out a store that specializes in selling in bulk goods. Usually they can provide you with a bunch of options and you can control how much you buy. :)
