Morning Pep Blanched Almond Flour in Snickerdoodle Blondies

Morning Pep Blanched Almond Flour in Snickerdoodle Blondies


Disclosure: I received a free sample in exchange for my honest review.





We have had a thing for Snickerdoodle blondies around the house here lately. But of course, I am trying to watch my sugar intake.. so this makes for a bit of a problem. 

A lot of times if I can get enough protein in a carby food I don't have as much of a blood sugar spike. Many times I add nuts to help.. but the man of the house doesn't like nuts mixed in food. 

Along comes a review for  Morning Pep Blanched Almond Flour. Hooray for this! They sent us a 2 pound bag AND a 5 pound bag. I can tell you- we are putting those bags through the works!


What is almond flour all about?


  • Made from 100% all-natural Gluten-Free blanched almonds
  • Substitute for wheat flour in cakes, breads, cookies, muffins and more
  • Great source of dietary fiber, Vitamin E, protein, iron, magnesium & calcium
  • Very finely-ground it Gives baked goods and sweets a rich flavor and moist texture
  • Certified Kosher And Gluten Free with No additives or preservative
  • Considered pasteurized by the USDA and The Almond Board of California



So what was our experience with Morning Pep Blanched Almond Flour?


We love it. I have added it to ice cream, and I love the texture and flavor that it adds to such a simple snack. In the morning I have been eating the almond flour with yogurt and granola. 

 I was grinding up pecans for a few days, but I have some teeth issues and it was really starting to get a bit much for me. Almond flour adds the protein without the crunch of whole or ground nuts.

 I of course modified the snickerdoodle blondie recipe below- so check that out-

I didn't even get a peep out of the family with the substitution I made. I think next time I will try to sub just a bit more and see how it goes!

The recipe I used came from Doing Splendid.



Snickerdoodle Blondies
Ingredients:
1 cup softened, unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla (I doubled this from 1 tsp)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
2  tsp. cinnamon (I increased from 1.5 tsp)
2 cups flour
1/2 cup almond flour (I think this can easily be increased)
Topping (I eliminated this topping to save carbs)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 9 x 13 pan. 
Cream together  butter, sugar, and brown sugar. 
Add the eggs and vanilla.
Add the salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and flour and mix until well combined. 
Add to 9×13 pan. 
Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar topping.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.

There was going to be an awesome picture, but the family devoured these puppies! Even the toddler got in on the excitement. 

Overall, I find the Morning Pep Blanched Almond Flour a great way to add protein and cut carbs from our diet. 

Thanks so much for letting us review this awesome product!
