Corn flour

Many people do not know that white flour has a large number of substitutes nowadays. Of course, these flours are different from each other, so the recipes may be different for them, but they work to make the same pastries, that we are used to.

White flour substitutes are an excellent choice for both people with gluten intolerance and people who want to diversify their diet.

Corn flour

Corn flour is probably the closest gluten-free flour to wheat flour. It is already quite common among bakers and is also often used for breading. It is prepared from dried corn grains and contains a large amount of vitamin A. It is rich in antioxidants that are good for eye health.

Chickpea flour

Chickpea flour is a good white flour substitute

This flour is perhaps one of the least known in the popular European cuisine. On the other hand, it is widespread in Western Asia and is ideal for falafels. It may have a special bean flavor in some dishes, but the fact that it is from legumes makes it very rich in protein. It is also low in carbohydrates and dietary.

Spelt flour

Spelt flour is not gluten-free, since spelt is a type of wheat and that's why it is not suitable for people with gluten intolerance. However, it contains more fiber and protein, which makes it more healthy than ordinary wheat flour. It is therefore better for the digestive system. Its taste is sweeter than the taste of wheat, which makes it interesting for use in cakes.

Coconut flour

Similar to corn flour, coconut flour is made from dried and ground coconut. Like all other coconut products, the flour also has a very good composition. It is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and fiber. The use of this flour in the preparation of pastries or other coconut cakes would be very successful, tasty and healthy.

Oatmeal flour

Types of flour

Oatmeal is one of the most healthy foods for the gastrointestinal flora. The same goes for oatmeal flour - it is one of the most healthy flours, which contains soluble fiber and a large amount of protein. Another advantage of this oatmeal flour is that it can be made at home, just by grinding oatmeal. It is widely used for both sweet and savory pastries.

Almond flour

Almond flour is also an alternative to wheat flour. It is already widely used in the French cuisine and is used to make sweet macaroni. It is quite a pleasant and flexible flour, which is extremely suitable for baking sweet pastries and making bread.

And all you have to do now is to take a look at these recipes for keto bread, which are prepared with these healthy flours.
