HOW TO USE NUT POWDERS

We all know how great nuts are for us! They are a good source of protein and dietary fibre. They also contain essential fatty acids, which are important for maintaining and healthy heart and body.

We sell a huge range of nuts in lots of different forms. This includes nut powders! We get a lot of questions as to how to use nut powders, so here are some of our favourite recipes!

Peach and Frangipane Tart

This frangipane tart has a moist filling made using almond flour and almond butter, together with a spelt pastry base and Amaretto-soaked peaches. The filling has a melty, chocolate-like texture due to the softness of the almond mix.

Chestnut Pancakes

Try something a little different, with our wheat-free chestnut pancakes. These are subtly flavoured with a natural sweet chestnut taste and work fantastically with sweet or savoury accompaniments.
