Finding the right type of flour to bake with while trying to eat on the THM plan has not been easy. The family still loves baked goods, but wheat flour is full of carbs. After playing around a bit with mixing flours, I think that I have found one that works for us. I might still toy with it, but for the most part, this blend works. It has just 31 grams of carbs per cup as opposed to 88 grams per cup of all-purpose flour and 117 grams/cup of whole wheat flour. Lots of ladies over on the THM Face Book page have created their own flour blends, and there are quite a few on Pinterest. If you are wanting to cut back on your carb intake this holiday season, but still want to have yummy baked goods, give this a try…or create your own! It isn’t that hard at all!
2 c. oat flour*
1 c. coconut flour
1 c. almond flour
1/2 c. ground flax
Mix together and keep in a labeled container. That’s all there is to it! Enjoy some low-carb baking!
*I buy old fashioned oats and grind them in my Ninja to make oat flour.
