Keto Flour

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.

Mixing Trick

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!

Keto Flour Ingredients

Ingredients for the PERFECT Homemade Keto Flour

Almond 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

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

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.

Xanthan Gum

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.

Keto Flour

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.

Keto Flour

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.

  1. You are a genius! Thank you making sit so much easirerto bake with less ingredients to get out and put away! Now perhaps I will bake!

    1. If my Cookies recipe calls for 1 cup of flour (non keto), should I use same amount of this mix? Does this apply to all recipes? Thanks!!

  2. I saw your recipe for the keto flour and bought the oat fiber. I have all the ingredients for the cookies and will make them tomorrow. I’m looking forward to more recipes using the keto flour.

  3. Could vital gluten be substituted for the xanthan gum? I don’t need Gluten Free, and vital gluten is low carb and may actually work better for things like breads.

    1. I’ve actually never used it since I need things to be gluten free for my son, but I just read about it and it would seem like you probably could. I am not sure of the amount, however. But if you are familiar with the usage, I imagine you could estimate that part. Let me know if you try it!

    1. This can be used in many things such as this! Occasionally the wet content needs to be adjusted, but you can normally see that in the dough if required.

  4. Love this keto flour. Anything that calls for almond flour gets your mix as I don’t like the texture of just almond flour. Thanks for your efforts!

    I am researching keto flour mixes and came across yours. I noticed the last comments were from 2020. Then, you said that you were developing recipes using this mix. Have you done that? And, if so, can you steer me to those recipes please? If not, can you give a general idea if this mix is good for cakes, cookies, breads, or roux’s? Thank you! Chris

    1. I actually have done a TON! I just haven’t written them up as recipes yet. It is a reasonably good (meaning, not 100% of the time) replacement for regular flour. I can usually tell by the dough if I need a little more or less of the flour mixture, but most times, it is good to do as is!
