Remember when your only options for flour were white and whole wheat? In the wake of the gluten-free craze, alternative flours like almond, oat and rice emerged, offering Celiac suffers options for baking, thickening and breading. With the ever-increasing demand for plant-based foods, the next generation of flours is completely grain-free. Flours made from fruits and vegetables are popping up online and on store shelves, and the wellness community can't get enough of them. Most are made from dried and ground fruits and veggies with little or no additional ingredients. (Check ingredient labeling on individual products to determine if any additives are present.) Here are eight vibrant flours you can try now.


Genius new fruit and vegetable flours will give you a boost of nutrients and cool place on taste. Make sweet potato infused cornbread, apple flavor muffins, or chicken tenders breaded with "broccoli". Hearthy Foods created the flours from dehydrated and milled produce also including kale, carrots, and more. Use them in baking and cooking as well as well as a thickening for soups and smoothies.

Hearthy Apple Flour

Hearthy Apple Flour


We were so intrigued with the fruit and vegetable flours from Hearthy Foods. Banana flour, carrot flour, mango flour and our pick for today, apple flour. It’s nothing but apple, organic Washington state apples to be exact. We don’t know how they turn the apples into flour, but the smell and the taste are definitely all apple. The flour is sweet like apples, too, but there’s no sugar. So it makes a nice sweetener for your cup of tea as well as a flour substitute for your next coffee cake. We found we particularly liked all these flours mixed into pancake batter, but check their website for dozens of uses.

$14.99 per 16-ounce package of apple flour. Available on Amazon or at Coming later this year to Whole Foods.

I am loving all of these alternative flours that are coming out these days, showing us that we can bake with many types of flours that come from plants. These are some new ones I’ve tried. The apple flour really has a taste of apples! I made some amazing apple pancakes with it. And the sweet potato flour is screaming to be used in pumpkin muffins.
