Almond flour is a great gluten free substitute especially for those that are allergic to coconut flour (or don’t like the taste of coconut flour). Although all of theses recipes are similar they are not the same. There are also some variations to the traditional chocolate chip cookie, included in this post, that are fantastic.
Almond flour does have a nutty taste, which is to be expected since it is made out of almonds, so if you aren’t a fan of almonds I wouldn’t recommend using almond flour. I happen to love most nuts, including almonds, so I really like the flavor of almond flour. If you like almond flour, but want the flavor to be more subtle in your cookies, cake, etc. then you could try substituting part of the almond flour for another gluten free flour like coconut flour, rice flour, potato flour, or quinoa flour. If you decide to substitute part of the almond flour for another gluten free flour, make sure you substitute the correct ratio.
