These look pretty tasty and would actually make a very nice appetizer or a dish to take to a pot luck dinner or office luncheon. I have not worked with almond flour. Is almond flour used because it is lower in carbs that regular flour or is it just a matter of preference?

Good morning! Almond flour is gluten free, rich in antioxidants, and low in carbs making it a healthier choice. :)
