There used to be a product Cakeability Expert Foods: Wise Choice Cake-ability Baking Aid which was prohibitively expensive but used to lighten up nut flours in baking.

I found a home version of it here Cakeability? = Add in for cooking with nut flour - Low Carb Friends and founds some reports it works well. Could be interesting to try adding in with our baked goods.

1/4 cup egg white powder (like JustWhites)
1 tsp xanathan gum
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 Vitamin C tablet - crushed. Or 1 tsp powder

I crushed the vitamin C in a coffee grinder.

Someone on this board posted it and it works beautifully.
1/4 cup per 1 cup ground nuts.

Thanks for sharing. I love my low-carb baking but it's definitely denser!

Adding JustWhites alone to Beefy's pancakes today made a difference - I had halved the recipe & didn't want to try halving a fresh jumbo egg, so I used a rounded tsp. of JustWhites. Seemed to me they were even more like flour pancakes than usual.

I wonder if I could use ascorbic acid instead of a vitamin C tablet? Not sure we have an tabs around here. Or maybe that's what it means by "1 tsp powder"

Yeah - saves you having to pulverize the Vit C tab ...
