Helpful Tips, Substitutions and FAQs

Do I need to sift the flour?

Sifting is a crucial step when cooking and baking with low-carb flour. Low Carb flours tend to be heavier and clumpy if not sifted. The sifting helps break up clumps and add some air into the flour. King Arthur keto Wheat Flour works well in both a sifter and a sieve. A sieve works better if using a substitute, such as Carbalose Flour, as it can get stuck in the sifter.

King Arthur keto Wheat Flour Substitutions

Almond Flour – Almond flour can be used at a 1 to 1 ratio, but alterations may be needed to the liquid ingredients. Using Almond Flour will also affect the final height/rise of the muffins, bread or cake. Almond Flour is finely ground almonds (skins removed) which can also change the overall flavour. Expect a nuttier flavour with a denser texture.

Coconut Flour – Coconut flour can be used as a low-carb replacement. As with almond flour, you will need to alter the liquid ingredients. Coconut flour tends to be absorbent, meaning you may need to add extra liquid to compensate. To maintain the calorie and carb content, adding extra egg or egg whites is a good option. You may lose some of the flavour, due to the coconut flavour. The end bake will also be denser.

Carbalose Flour – This is another excellent substitution for King Arthur Keto Wheat Flour. The ratio is 1-1 with the K.A. Keto Flour. One must-do of Carbalose Flour is that you need to sift it well. Sift it at least once, but twice is better. It is a dense flour and the sifting will help to add some air and lighten it up. You may need to alter the liquid ingredients. having extra egg whites on hand makes it easy to alter liquids as you go.

All-Purpose Flour – As with most non-low-carb recipes all-purpose flour is the main ingredient. You can easily switch out the King Arthur Keto Flour with All Purpose on a 1-1 ratio. Reduce the amount of baking powder to almost half. You may also need to reduce the liquids. It is a good idea to add the liquid ingredients slowly so that if your batter seems to be getting thin, you can reduce the liquid. The use of all-purpose will increase the carbs significantly.

Sweetener Substitutions

I use Splenda granulated whenever possible as it does not negatively impact my blood sugar. I find that sweeteners that contain sugar alcohols cause my blood sugar to rise. If this is not a concern for you or you have a preferred sweetener, by all means, make substitutions that suit your preferences and dietary needs. Keep in mind that substituting the sweetener may change the overall nutritional information.

Milk Substitutions

Don’t stray too far from the milk. Milk adds the required liquid and helps to keep the carbs in line. You can use powdered milk, evaporated milk or half-and-half as a substitute. A plain unsweetened yogurt can also be used. Do not use water in place of the milk.

Storing and Freezing Instructions

Store Sugar Free Banana Muffins in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 4 days. Pop them in your microwave for about 5-8 seconds to take the chill off and enjoy.

Freeze your muffins in an airtight container for up to one month. For best results, individually wrap them in plastic wrap and place them in an airtight container.
