Thank goodness there’s an affordable version of our new favorite flour alternative.
I can tell from the food conversations I’m having with my girls, and the recipes they’re pinning to our Whole30 recipe board, that we have dessert on the brain.

It’s a great alternative for anyone who wants to avoid grains, but still wants to enjoy the occasional baked good. But if you look for it in the store, you might be disheartened by what it threatens to do to your budget.
