Nutty Noodles

I know that Semolina flour can be used to make homemade pasta, but will Blanched Almond Flour work?

Almond Flour


Scroll down to "The many uses of Almond Flour".

I think almond flour pasta can be done but it's going to be a process of experimentation.

Let us know how your pasta turns out!

This has been an ongoing discussion as to what LC flours work best in homemade pasta. I have a pasta machine (old fashioned kind) and have made homemade pasta for years until I started LCing..

I truly doubt that almond flour would make pasta..First of all it has no gluten to make it stick together and the fact it has to be boiled and has to stick together in water probably wouldn't work.

However, you can try it and see what happens.

I wondered if pasta required gluten. But then thought, the dough doesn't *rise*, so maybe not. I have an unopened pkg of vital wheat gluten. I forget the carb count of it though. Will have to look. So, gluten and almond flour could work? ... or not. (visions of making paste instead of pasta)

Hmmm..I am waiting for you to try it.. I think LC pasta is probably one of the hardest things to "get right and taste right". I've done it with soy flour, but I don't care for the taste of soy flour..I've tried it with Carbalose and CQ and oat flour and protein powder, etc...
