Depends on your WOE (way of eating) / plan and phase. For example, for Atkins Induction, I would say no and recommend pork panko (crushed pork rinds) or parmesan cheese or a blend of the two. BUT if you are doing another phase or version of low carb it may be ok. On Atkins, nuts are not allowed until OWL, Rung #3.... the idea (if I recall correctly) is that some people are sensitive to nuts (either allergy, intolerance, too high carb, or a "trigger food") and adding them back in after abstaining can make it more obvious if they are an issue for you or not.

Thanks for your advice and I agree. I guess I should have been more specific, I was looking more toward taste and texture. To see if anyone had experimented with these "flours".

ah, sorry! Yes I have... I prefer the almond flour alone. The coconut flour sucks up SO much moisture. But it is worth a try to see if you like the texture.... might be personal preference.

I ended up using garbanzo bean flour and it worked great. gave the chicken a nice brown coating.

Sounds good! I've had an Indian fried veggie dish that uses garbanzo flour coating and it's so good! How many carbs per piece appx?
