Our natural almond meal is ground from whole almonds with the skin intact. Almond meal contains 6 grams of carbohydrates per serving. It is gluten free and a good source of protein and fiber. Use it in place of regular flour for low carb baking or try it as a breading for meats and vegetables. It is the quintessential ingredient for many French pastries, like the classic frangipane and the ever-popular macaroons. If fine pastry baking is not up your alley, simply adding some almond meal to your favorite baked good will add a wonderful richness. Almond meal can even be used in place of graham cracker crumbs for a decadent no-bake pie crust.
Natural almond meal brings the rich flavor of almonds to your baked goods. A deep caramel color is not uncommon for baked goods made with natural almond meal. Expect baked goods using natural almond meal to have a slight moistness and tender crumb.
Bob's Red Mill products labeled Gluten Free are batch tested in our quality control laboratory. We use an ELISA Gluten Assay test to confirm that a product is gluten free.

Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine almond meal, baking soda and sea salt and set aside. Mix coconut oil and maple syrup in a mixer or by hand until creamy but not fully incorporated, about 5 minutes. Add whole egg, egg whites and extracts (if using) and mix for 2 additional minutes. Slowly add dry ingredients to egg mixture and mix briefly. Add chocolate chips and toasted almonds and mix until well combined. Place large rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets, about 1-inch apart.
Flatten slightly, to approximately 1-inch thickness. Bake until set and golden, about 15 minutes.

To toast almonds, spread in an even layer onto a baking sheet. Toast in a 375ºF oven for 7 - 10 minutes, stirring at least twice during baking for even browning.
