Almond Flour and Coconut Flour

Recommended Posts

I am starting the Whole 30 diet on Monday and I started grocery shopping.   I understand that almond Flour and coconut flour are whole 30 approved but after reading the labels it appears that both have 1-2 grams of sugar.  However the only ingredients are the almonds and the coconut.  Is this ok? Or, is there a coconut Flour and almond Flour that's recommended?

With all items, it is important to read the ingredients. Items such as nuts, tomatoes etc have naturally occurring sugars which would appear on the nutritional panel. If the item does not have any non-compliant ingredients, including added sweeteners, it's fine.

Can you eat coconut, almond, any of the various allowed flours, with impunity or limited?  I really like the idea of either an almond or coconut flour pancake, one that has the consistency of an actual pancake... but is that a pipe dream or reality?

Disregard. I got my answer already!  Limited amounts. Gotcha!

Make sure you aren't re-creating pancakes though...that's specifically called out as no good for Whole 30. It's re-creating a pancake with compliant ingredients and that would make it SWYPO.
