about chestnut flour

The chestnut flour is one of our favourite ingredients when making desserts. This flour is made from dried ground chestnuts and it's gluten-free, making ideal for gluten-free desserts. This pale brown flour has its natural sweetness and is a great to avoid adding sugar or any other sweetener to the desserts.

We use chestnut flour for making brownies, muffinscookies, pancakes and other sweets. Ground chestnut (chestnut flour) has a sweet strong flavour and slightly pasty texture when cooked. 

Note that chestnut flour has no gluten so it usually needs to be mixed with another flour when used in baking. If you use another low gluten flour it will tend to be crumbly but still delicious. It can be purchased from your local organic food store.

how is chestnut flour made

In autumn chestnuts are collected and dried for forty days and once dried they are gradually ground into flour by millstones. The best time to buy the chestnut flour is therefore after the second half of November, when the new flour is available in the shops. You can buy chestnut fluor from your local organic food stores or online.

The chestnut flour has more starch content than other nut flours, so it ends to result in fluffier, lighter confections. It doesn't require nearly as many eggs to rise and be remotely edible like coconut flour does. It's perfect paleo flour.

The chestnut flour is really fine and tends to create batters that are about the same consistency as wheat flour batters. You can use chestnut flour in combination with other grain-free flours, like almond and coconut. Adding some almond flour to the mix is good for adding volumen, while coconut flour is a good thickening agent.
