We originally had to get ours out of town but now they carry it here. Places like health food stores, GNC, and even Kroger carries it.

Thanks for the opinions! I think I'll save and try almond flour first since a lot of you mentioned it. Now to find it..... I live in a small town. Might have to venture off to the city for that one! :)

I've not seen hazelnut flour here. The coconut flour is very expensive.

I also like almond and hazelnut flour. I must try coconut
flour next. There is also besan (garbanzo) flour.
I have used flaxseed meal to make a breakfast mixture as
a change from oatmeal.

I had some of that Carbquick once and thought it had kind of a funky taste to it - left an after taste to me..

I'm like the others, I'll use almond flour, coconut flour or flax meal if I want something like that. At least I know what's in those too........

I would say, save your money on that Carbquick.

I have a box and forgot I had it till now. Yeah I prefer using alternative nut flours myself...

If you are looking for a low carb breading alternative, try almond flour.

I had never heard of it so I googled it. I personally wouldn't like it because it's made from wheat.

I was thinking about buying a box but seems like quite a hefty price tag and wanted some opinions first! It says it's a 3 lbs box.... and honestly I don't know how much "use" that is.

I wanted a way to "bread" or "fry" things and occasionally make biscuits or waffles.

Opinions please?
