Most conventional flours are quite high in carbs which makes baking breads, cookies, and cakes difficult to say the least. Fortunately, if you want to stay healthy and still eat cookies and cakes occasionally, you do have a variety of options for low carb flour substitutes. Most of these low carb flours are going to be less processed and higher in fiber, meaning that overall they're healthier for you whether or not you're on a low carb diet.
