Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

As a notorious 'health nut' almonds are packed with manganese and vitamin E and each 1/4 cup serving contains the desired monounsaturated fats. By replacing a mere 25% of flour with almond flour it will reduce the number of carbohydrates consumed while providing the desired flakiness in baked goods and in savory applications (e.g. meatballs and coating for fish and chicken). Nutmeg is a great source of fiber, which helps with constipation, control blood cholesterol, blood sugar and decrease risk of chronic diseases. Use of nutmeg also boosts copper and manganese intake, keeping skeleton strong and healthy. If you're up for it, buy fresh nutmeg and use a fine grater to add to Greek yogurt, coffee, muffins, smoothies or a mixture of almond milk.
