Almond meal, almond flour or ground almond is made from ground sweet almonds. Almond flour is usually made with blanched almonds (no skin), whereas almond meal can be made both with whole or blanched almonds. The consistency is more like corn meal than wheat flour.
Ground almonds are a delicious addition to any baking. They give cakes a distinct nutty flavour and moist texture and are naturally gluten free.
