how to make bread with almond flour

Making bread with almond flour is essentially the same as making bread with any other flour. You don’t have to do anything special to almond flour.

I do recommend measuring the almond flour for this recipe by using a scoop to scoop the flour from the bag into a measuring cup. This will ensure that you have the correct amount of flour and not too much. When we “dunk” the measuring cup into the bag of flour and pack it in, we often get way too much flour, which will ultimately give you a super dense, and dry bread.

Is almond meal the same as almond flour?

No! Almond meal is typically made from raw (unpeeled) almonds, whereas almond flour is made from blanched (peeled) almonds. Compared to almond meal, almond flour has a finer texture and lighter color, which is typically better for most baked goods.
