Almonds are a great low-carb, gluten-free source of protein, dietary fiber, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. If you are looking for ingredients that can enhance your Keto-friendly diet plan, explore the new, high-quality Almond Protein Powder from Glenda’s Farmhouse.
Glenda’s Farmhouse is an Andersen & Sons Shelling brand. Since 1904, our family has been farming walnuts, prunes, and cattle in Vina, California, in Northern California. We have merged with Western Nut Company and are expanding into new brands and other tree nut commodities, such as almonds, cashews, and pecans.
Our Almond Protein Powder is made with premium, whole California-grown almonds. The creamy powder blends perfectly into smoothies, baked goods, sauces, salad dressings and more, and meets the requirements of a ketogenic diet.
Safe food products from Glenda’s Farmhouse are produced following Good Manufacturing Practices as regulated by the FDA. The almonds are pasteurized before sale with steam and without chemicals to meet California’s requirements.
We recommend that you consult with a physician before beginning a ketogenic diet to ensure it is right for you.
Ways to Use Almond Protein Powder
Almond Protein Powder is not reserved just for people on keto-friendly diets. You can use it in a wide range of satisfying gluten-free and vegan recipes.
Keto-friendly Chocolate Almond Protein Shake
Try this shake recipe as a breakfast replacement or mid-day snack with a light meal. Add one cup unsweetened almond milk to your blender. Then add one scoop (about two tablespoons) Glenda’s Farmhouse almond protein powder, one tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder, one teaspoon vanilla extract, two tablespoons monk fruit sweetener, 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, one tablespoon almond butter, a pinch of salt, and some ice. Blend on high for 10-20 seconds or until combined. This recipe serves one.
Keto-Friendly Pumpkin Pudding/Ice Cream
In contrast to other starchy vegetables, pumpkin contains lower amounts of sugar and starch and is considered keto-friendly. Stir together one cup canned pumpkin, one quarter cup Glenda’s Farmhouse almond protein powder, one and a half tablespoons sugar-free maple syrup, two teaspoons pure vanilla extract, and one teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Chill and enjoy, or freeze to make ice cream. Recipe makes two servings.
Banana Almond Protein Pancakes
Combine one ripe mashed banana with one quarter cup Glenda’s Farmhouse almond protein powder, two tablespoons crunchy almond butter, one tablespoon pure maple syrup, and one quarter teaspoon ground cinnamon. Stir thoroughly to form a batter. Cook three spoonfuls of batter over low heat to form pancakes, flipping after three minutes. Makes one serving.
Chocolate Chip Almond Protein Cookies
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Combine one cup Glenda’s Farmhouse almond protein powder and one-half cup brown sugar with one-half cup water, and mix until smooth. Add one egg, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and mix. Add 1/4 cup unbleached white flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and mix until smooth. Fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
