This keto protein flour has proven to be quite the interesting experiment with some fabulous success.

I came across a video of someone on a Facebook group talking about dehydrated chicken flour and they had a video of them quite simply blending their dehydrated chicken into a flour/meal.  It totally got me thinking as I was interested to know how it work in applications for keto recipes.

Now let me first say it is best used in simple recipes as a substitute for almond meal.  It is an easy straightforward swap in recipes like a fathead dough pizza base or pastry substitute moreso than a bread.  While we have tested in a bread it is not recommended as it was just a little “weird,” but using it as a flatbread, pie crust and pastry has turned out fabulous as you can see from the images below.  I would like to say thank you to Lynda Watters and Robyn McEvoy for the use of their images and pie.


These images are of a straight fathead dough using the protein flour instead of almond meal and baked in the oven.

How good does this pie look?

Lynda achieved a perfect seal on the sides too lol.

A perfect protein fathead dough toastie by Robyn.  She described it as very yummy and also had keto and non-keto kids try it out.  We got  4/5 rating so I guess it is pretty good.  lol.

Anyway as everyone is chomping at the bit I have released this recipe, even while we are now experimenting with dehydrating some cooked chicken as well to see how that mills and cooks as well.

As I said at first this has become a very interesting test with already some great results.  The idea of having a flour option to substitute for allergies and intolerances is kind of exciting.  I will update this post with the additional test of the cooked chicken.

Also please note the nutritional is for the complete batch of dehydrated chicken.

If you need to purchase a dehydrator I have noticed that Froothie have $100 off the Excalibur and a sale of their own brand as well.

    Megan, you never cease to amaze! Chicken? Wow! Who’d of thought….will be trying out a batch this weekend as I’m not a huge fan of almond meal. Will be interesting to see what other applications it can be used for. Will let you know how I go

  • Debbie says:

    How long will this flour keep?

  • lisa k says:

    This sounds interesting. I’ve been playing with the idea of buying a dehydrator for a long time (but have delayed it as we installed a whizz bang Ariston “MasterChef” oven — same as on the show — and it has a great range of low temperatures down to 30C…. That said, I am sure a proper dehydrator would be better, especially for chicken…

    If anyone else has made this – does it taste ‘chickeny’ ?? Strange question I know but we hate chicken to taste “Chickeny” so never even microwave it to reheat and would hate to buy the dehydrator if they chicken flavour was intensified.
