Almond Flour Recipes
The use of almond flour is the perfect choice for those who can’t have coconut products but still want to enjoy the benefits of the keto diet.
Just because you’re on a keto diet and have an allergy doesn’t mean you can’t have baked goods. Almond flour makes the great substitution for gluten-free cookies, cakes, and other keto-friendly items.
What Is Almond Flour? What Is Almond Meal And How Do They Differ?
Almond flour is just finely ground almonds and it’s made by using only skinless, blanched almonds. It’s a great alternative gluten-free flour and is prized in many low carb baked goods such as cakes, bread, cookies. It also boasts a much finer texture than almond meal.
In the case of almond meal, it is made of ground almonds that still have their skins and have not been blanched so it has a more coarse texture. You’ll notice that the recipes in this collection feature the use of both almond flour and almond meal, this is because they both play different and unique roles.
As far as flavor goes, both have a nutty aroma. What basically sets them apart is texture since almond flour is finer while almond meal has a coarse texture.

When it comes to baking with both almond flour and almond meal, you should know there has been a long history of gluten-free bakers that have enjoyed using a consistent alternative to wheat flour.
Even among traditional bakers, the use of almond flour has been a favorite for those who make homemade French macarons since it’s the only authentic way to do so.
However, with the increase of ketogenic diets, almond flour has gained even more popularity. A great choice for anyone tracking their macros who wants to make sure they are not kicked out ofketosis.
Keto bakers enjoying using it because it can be swapped for wheat flour in most recipes 1:1. Both have a mild nutty flavor that does not compete with the other flavors in a recipe. More importantly, it is also low enough in carbs to be considered keto-friendly.
However, the lack of gluten in almond flour means it won’t behave exactly like wheat flours. Recipes that depend on gluten for their structure and rise will not see the same results when swapped for wheat flour.
Although you can basically use both almond flour and almond meal interchangeably, you should know that it can affect the final outcome because of their distinct texture differences.
For example, I prefer to use almond meal in to replace cornmeal in my cornbread based recipes, while I use almond flour that is measured and then sifted for all my cakes, cookies, and quick bread recipes.
Best Almond Flour And Almond Meal Options
In keto baking, the quality of almond flour/meal is very important and also varies depending on the brand. My favorite brands are:
Take note of the expiration date because you want to work with and fresh flour. This is important because almond flour/meal, like most gluten-free flours, tends to spoil rather quickly. I recommend that you always store them in airtight containers and don’t plan on keeping them for very long.
If you don’t think you’ll use your flour fast enough, you can store it in the fridge to extend it’s life a little longer. If storing in the fridge do make sure that it’s in an airtight container to avoid moisture and smells penetrating into the flour.
It will require some tweaking to swap almond flour/meal but don’t worry I’ve done the work for you! You can check out my tips for keto baking to find out more.

If there is one thing I particularly proud of sharing it’s how we combined our Christian faith with the keto diet.
In case you don’t know, Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our entire lives supported by God’s grace.
Randy had been a diabetic for over 15 years and he was dealing with the consequences of this disease. I was a survivor of the Guillan Barre Syndrome and was fighting fibromyalgia and chronic sciatica.
To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation.
Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives. I love how supportive and encouraging this group of believers is. It’s exciting to see how people are transforming their lives by combining this lifestyle with the Christian faith.
The testimonies coming out of our Fittoservegroup is what motivates us to continue to share what we’ve learned.
