My almond flour obsession

Sometimes I feel like I’m always out of almond flour in my home. No matter how much I order, I still manage to use up all the almond meal. I think it’s my favorite ingredient for the cakes.

No need for Butter? Fats?

The best part is that almonds are already full of fat and you don’t even need to use any butter or other oil to make it moist. Almond will do all the work and you don’t even have to worry about the dry cake. Okay, the only way is that you leave the cake in the oven for too long and it will go dry because of that.

Back to childhood: Basic Cake Slice

This cake here is the most basic gluten and refined sugar-free paleo almond cake that you can enjoy on its own or serve it with fresh berries. The choice is yours. It reminds me of my childhood biscuit that we used to eat in the summertime with fresh strawberries and whipping cream. I must say that it’s hard to make a difference with this almond meal cake and plain flour cake.
