Our Almond Flour is made from almonds that have been blanched to remove the skins, then ground to a fine texture that is great for baking. It is a go-to ingredient for gluten free and low carb baked goods, and a must-have for paleo, Keto diet and other grain free baking recipes. Almond flour or almond ground is the main ingredient in French macarons, and commonly used for airy cakes, cookies and quick bread. Almond flour can substitute all-purpose flour but may require more eggs or binding agent. The ratio range from ¼cup:1 to 1:1 depending on the baked goods
Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal is ground from whole, blanched sweet almonds. Almonds are notoriously healthy nuts providing a good amount of manganese and vitamin E , as well as a healthy serving of monounsaturated fats in each 1/4 cup serving. Not only do almonds have a healthy boost of protein, they are also very low in carbohydrates and inherently gluten free.
Eating whole almonds is terrific, but did you know that adding almond meal to your baking and cooking can bring the health benefits of almonds to your diet, as well as cutting back on carbohydrate consumption? Replacing 25% of the flour in your baking with almond meal will add wonderful texture and flavour while reducing the total carbohydrates. This makes it perfect for those following a low carbohydrate or paleo diet.
Almond meal is produced in our gluten free facility, making it an ideal addition to a gluten free diet. In addition to low carbohydrate baking, almond meal is wonderful for use in French macarons and financiers, pie crusts, cakes, cookies, pancakes and quick breads. Almond meal can be used in savoury applications, as well. Use almond meal in place of bread crumbs in meatballs, or as a coating for chicken and fish. Find recipes for using almond meal under the recipe tab below. Almond meal is best kept refrigerated or frozen.
