Almond Crusted Pork Tenders with a delicious baked crunchy almond coating make the perfect healthy alternative to your favorite fried fingers, plus they are Paleo, Whole30, and low carb friendly.
I don't know if I have ever met a chicken finger I didn't like. Maybe its the crunchy coating, maybe its the fact that I love to dip just about anything, but they are just one of those foods that will always be up there on my favorites. However I don't love the fat, calories, and unhealthy ingredients. Luckily chicken tenders are easy to make at home in a much healthier way and since we eat way too much chicken around here, today I decide to make a version using the other white meat - pork tenderloin. I promise that it is just as delicious and a great alternative if your family is anything like mine and survives on way too much chicken breast.
To add even more flavor to these tenders, I decided to coat them in a combination of almond flour and chopped almonds. Not only does it add crunch, I love the nutty flavor you get from using almond meal instead of regular flour. Now you could defintiely use regular flour instead, but I highly recommend the almond flour. It adds protein, healthy fats, and it really does add something special to these tenders.
Now the last thing to talk about is dipping sauce options. With these Almond Crusted Pork Tenders there are so many delicious options:
