In my quest to make my own low-carb pancakes, bread and cakes, I have to use Almond Flour. I went everywhere in search of it. It is really not easy to be on low-carb when you are staying in Malaysia. Well, staying in Kuala Lumpur is a lil bit easier compared to other cities here because we have access to some supermarkets that offer a better range of sugar-free food items like jam, syrups, etc.
So, back to Almond Flour for low-carb bakes. I saw Bob Red Mill’s Almond Flour at Jaya Grocer and they cost a freaking rm60 for a bag of maybe 500 grams. Insane right? Well, I did not give up and went everywhere to find it.
Guess what? I finally found it at Bake With Yen. There is a Bake With Yen outlet in my neighbourhood so I popped over to have a look. When I saw them on the shelves, I was in Almond Heaven.
A bag of Almond Flour for RM20 which is about US$5 for a bag of 500 gm. Not cheap but at least I can get them here.
