Baking 101 - Gluten Free Almond "Flour" vs. Almond "Meal"

Posted by Bridget Gebbie on February 12, 2014 | 2 Comments

After many baking disasters, did you know that almond flour and almond meal should not be used interchangeably when baking? Almond meal is typically coarser due to the almond skins not being removed. Whereas almond flour is "blanched" and made from skinless almonds resulting in a finer grind. When we recently ran out of our almond "flour" from Honeyville Farms and converted back to almond "meal," our baked goods were becoming too moist again and concaving in the center. Moral of the story - Do not blame your oven, almond "meal" works great for breading fish and poultry, but stick to true almond "flour" for baking.

 Ingredients:

  • 1 Parsnip
  • ½ Sweet Onion
  • 1 Pepper; any color will do

  • ~ 1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • Optional: Wild Rice; try Goose Valley Organic Wild Rice

Eight months ago when my doctor told me I needed to stop drinking any form of alcohol to fight my candidiasis, I told him he was crazy.

I found this great recipe from Tropical Traditions, but made some revisions to make it more sugar friendly. I use coconut palm sugar as it's a great low glycemic alternative (especially when dealing with diabetes). Here is my variation to "gingerbread cookies":

Gluten Free Baking Tip: Know the Derivative of Alcohol in Foods

Posted by Jennifer Gebbie on November 20, 2013 | 1 Comment
