Are you looking for breadcrumb alternatives for fried pork chops? They are frugal and tastier than regular breadcrumbs. Also, I am sharing a family-favorite pork chop recipe. Pairs wonderfully with Instant Pot steamed vegetables or lemon butter asparagus. Don’t forget to try this Almond Crusted Baked Chicken too!




  1. Pat dry the pork chops with a towel and set aside.
  2. Measure 2 Tbsp of almond flour onto a plate.
  3. Measure ¼ cup of milk into a shallow dish.
  4. Combine ½ cup hemp hearts, ½ cup almond flour, and seasonings in a separate shallow dish.
  5. Melt coconut oil over a cast iron skillet on medium-low. The oil is ready for frying when you drop a drop of water and it sizzles. You want a medium, steady sizzle. A weak sizzle means the oil isn’t hot enough, and a fast, hard sizzle means the oil is too hot.
  6. Working with one pork chop at a time, lightly coat both sides of the pork chop in the almond flour and brush off the excess.
  7. Quickly dunk both sides of the pork chop into the milk.
  8. Place the pork chop in the seasoned hemp heart dish and thoroughly coat both sides of the pork chop.
  9. Add the pork chop to the frying pan and cook on medium heat until the sides turn a dark golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side for the same dark golden color.
  10. Remove pork chop to a cooling rack for a few minutes before serving (this helps to make the crust crispier).
  11. Repeat with the remaining pork chops, taking care not to overcrowd the frying pan.


You might not think that one pork chop is very filling, but I found that each 1/4 lb pork chop – when coated with protein-rich hemp hearts and almond flour AND healthy fats – was very satisfying.
