Wouldn't it be nice to have a keto flour blend on hand that you could use for everything from cookies to cakes to cupcakes?
Well, I thought so! Introducing..... my personal keto flour blend!
I've been working on the ratios in this blend for a while and I'll get into why I chose the ingredients I did below.
I used this blend to make some AMAZING keto macadamia nut cookies with white chocolate chips. YUMMMMMY!
How to Make Keto Flour
Luckily this one is super easy! All you have to do is mix the almond flour, coconut flour, oat fiber and xanthan gum together and store it in an airtight container.
You can mix the flours up in a bowl with a spatula or whisk - works great.
BUT, are you ready for my super (not so secret) hack? I like to add the ingredients to a ziplock back or even a larger glass container and just shake it. I really think it works best for getting everything nice and mixed up!
Ingredients for the PERFECT Homemade Keto Flour
Almond flour is the main ingredient used in this keto flour blend. I prefer to use almond flour as base above anything else. The reason is that it is high in fat, does not soak up so much liquid that things end up dry, and it is readily available in stores.
Coconut flour is one of my favorite flours to supplement with. It doesn't change the flavor much when added in small amounts and it is great for adding volume via fluff (which almond flour is not the best at).
Coconut flour does absorb quite a bit of liquid which is why you only need a small amount.
Oat fiber is my second favorite flour to supplement with. When added in baking it greatly increases the fiber (which most of us on keto need) and it improves the texture of baked goods.
Lastly, we use xanthan gum for binding and thickening. These are things that we get "for free" with regular gluten type flours and we lose that when we remove gluten.
Is Oat Fiber Keto Friendly?
It sure is! Oat fiber is made from grinding the oat full. Fiber is SUPER important in general, but definitely on keto!
There are 0g net carbs in oat fiber so enjoy using it in your keto baking!
Do I Need to Use Xanthan Gum in my Keto Flour?
No, you do not. As I already talked about the reason we use xanthan gum is to make up for a few things that we lose in regular gluten flours.
I've made plenty of baked goods without xanthan gum, so it is optional.
Can I Change the Ratios of Keto Flours
You certainly can, but I would suggest a little trial and error first. The amount of liquid needed in a recipe, texture and bulk will all change as you change the ratio.
Can I Substitute This in Place of Wheat Flour?
In many cases, yes. It is designed to mock regular flour but is not a 1:1 substitute in all cases.
