Almond meal is next to almond flour one of the best gluten-free flour substitutes for baking and your best friend when on a paleo diet. On the downside, store-bought almond meal isn’t the cheapest ingredient. It’s usually quite expensive.

Therefore I highly recommend making homemade almond meal with this easy and simple recipe. All you need are raw almonds and a high-speed blender (Vitamix is one of the best). Feel free to use either whole raw almonds or raw sliced almonds.

Difference Almond Meal vs. Almond Flour

Almond meal is made from raw almonds (unpeeled), whereas almond flour is made from blanched almonds (peeled). Meaning they are usually interchangeably in recipes. But stay with me for one more minute.

almond flour vs almond meal

Almond meal has a slightly coarser texture, a nuttier flavor, and a darker color (brownish). Besides, raw almonds (unpeeled) are usually cheaper than blanched almonds.

Almond flour, on the other hand, has a slightly finer texture and is lighter in color. Furthermore, peeled almonds are better to digest.

So, feel free to swap almond flour for almond meal and vice-versa.

Measurements: 1 cup of almond meal equals 100g. This recipe calls for 7 oz raw almonds resulting in 2 cups of homemade almond meal.

How To Store Almond Meal

Store it in an airtight mason jar, preferably in the refrigerator, where it lasts the longest (up to a few weeks). You can also freeze almond flour or store it in the pantry.

I prefer only to pulse a small batch at a time, use it up, and make fresh almond flour next time rather than storing a large batch, which will eventually go bad.

Recipes Using Almond Meal

Most recipes (including the linked ones below) call for almond flour rather than almond meal, but as explained in the section above, those are interchangeable.
