Awhile back I made an impulsive splurge and picked up a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal. In reality I only ordered it because I wanted to get free shipping and needed my shopping cart to reach a certain pre-tax amount. Ugh, I’m always prone to spend more money that way. Either way I’ve found quite a few uses for almond meal, some of which are the less common uses of almond meal.
To start off, there is the more conventional use:
However I’m always concerned about the safety of baking almond based products at high temperatures (see reason).
So I’ve experimented with some other almond meal uses such as:
Almond Meal salad Dressing: 1 tbsp almond meal, 1 tsp yellow mustard, 2 tbsp salsa, splash of apple cider vinegar. The tea pictured is Creme de la menthe from DavidsTea. I really like this tea, but I’m not surprised because it reminds me a lot of an old time favourite: Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane.
Alligator Stew Ingredient:
Ingredients: 1.5 cups of cold tea, 3 tbsp whey, 2 tbsp peanut flour, 2 tbsp almond meal, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, frozen spinach, frozen apple, 7 ice cubes.
Are you ever concerned about baking at high temperatures with nut based flours? Do you have any other uses for almond meal? Are you prone to spending more online in order to get free shipping?
