Use Almond Flour
This is made from ground almond nuts.
It is useful in the making of cakes, muffins and waffles.
Almonds are rich in protein and are low carbohydrate foods, they are also right in omega-6 fatty acids.
Try Coconut Flour

Coconut flour is rich in inulin fiber which adds to its absorbent nature.
It is great in making pizza crust, cakes, muffins and brownies. Coconut flour is a healthy flour that can help people with digestive system issues like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Use Cassava Flour To Bake
Popularly known as Yuca, this flour is derived from the root vegetable crop known as cassava. A staple crop in Africa, Latin America and Asia. The difference between tapioca flour and cassava flour is the latter is obtained from the entire crop while the former is derived from just the root.
Yuca is smooth and clean with a neutral flavor but a similar texture to wheat flour. You can use it to bake cakes, muffins and pizza crusts, you can also boil the root and mash it like potatoes if you like.
However, this crop gas a high cyanide content if eaten raw but it is rich in carbohydrates and fiber.
Wonderful Chestnut Flour
They have a very strong nutty flavor and are great alternatives to almond flour. While chestnuts can be eaten roasted over an open fire, boiled or baked, their flour is very starchy and contain phytic acid though in smaller amounts when compared with almonds and other nuts.
They are rich in fiber, carbs, potassium, manganese, vitamin C and copper.
Try Out Tigernut Flour
Tigernuts are actually not nuts!
They are actually root veggies and their flour has a very pleasant flavor with no strange after taste like other gluten-free flours.
They are rich in carbohydrates, fiber and mono saturated fats. Use this flour as a veritable baking option for your cakes, muffins and pizza crusts as its fiber is great for fighting digestive disorders as well.
