This is an index or a list of all of therecipes I have on my blog. I consider them the best recipes made with that can be found.
Recipes made with it will be flatter and denser since it lacks gluten. Some people replace it with wheat flour with a 1:1 ratio but I wouldn't recommend it without a tried, tested, and proven recipe.

Now, let's talk a little bit about. It is a popular alternative to wheat flour mainly because it's completely gluten-free. It is packed with nutrients like protein and also very low in carbs. It also tastes slightly sweeter. It can help with insulin resistance and can reduce LDL cholesterol which is the bad cholesterol.
It is made from almonds which are blanched in boiling water which removes the skins. Then the almonds are ground and sifted into a very fine flour.
Flour made with almonds is not the same as almond meal. Almond meal is ground with the skins still on which makes it much coarser. Sometimes the name might be used interchangeably but they cannot be used interchangeably for baking. The texture in baking makes a big difference.
It contains a lot of magnesium and vitamin E which are two very important nutrients for good health, which makes it incredibly nutritious.
It is good for people who have wheat intolerance or celiac disease since it is naturally gluten-free.
Since it is more nutrient-dense and lower in carbs thanor wheat flour you receive more nutrients when you eat it because it has less phytic acid.
