Need to increase your fiber intake? High-fiber flour and white bean flour offer up to 8 grams per 1/4 cup. Want to up the amount of protein you eat in a day? Soy flour provides more than twice the amount of all-purpose flour. Want to make a cake or cookie recipe more moist and rich-tasting? Try almond meal (it's also much lower in carbohydrate than most flours). And if gluten intolerance keeps you from enjoying most baked goods, there are flours for that, too; mix up your next pan of brownies with a gluten-free baking mix.
True, it takes a little substitution know-how when baking with these alternative grains. That's why we enlisted the help of the experts and dietitians in the Better Homes and Gardens® Test Kitchen. After multiple tests, we bring you our best recommendations for flours that bake up delicious and healthful sweet treats.
