All about Almond Flour!

What is Almond Flour?

Flour is used in many foods, from bread and pasta to cookies and snacks. Flour made from wheat is the most common type, but for people who can’t eat wheat because of allergies or dietary choices, almond flour is a popular and healthy alternative. Because almond flour is gluten-free, it is also a helpful option for people with celiac disease.

Almond flour is made from ground almonds and can replace wheat flour in just about any recipe. It’s easy to make at home, or you can buy it in supermarkets and health food stores.

What are substitutes for Almond Flour

If you don’t have almond flour you can substitute:

  •  Equal amounts of almond meal (coarser texture)
  • An option is to use coconut flour as an alternative to almond flour.  While both have a more granular texture than most grain flours, coconut flour absorbs moisture at a high rate than does almond flour.  This will require some experimentation.

Try using 1/4 cup of coconut flour to replace 1 cup of almond flour. Then either add an extra egg to the recipe OR double the amount of liquid called for (or you may need to do both).  Additionally coconut flour may change the flavor in your recipe.
