Those do, as the article describes, sound refreshingly easy to make, except for the "almond meal" ingredient:  do you have to grind fresh almonds to make the almond meal?  Could you use 100% almondbutter instead?

PT....almond meal is also called almond flour....Bob's Red Mill....other brands as well...It's sold in the supermarkets of most larger chains and in WF and other health food stores.  You could grind up your own almonds.  Don't think I'd use almond butter....You're looking for the texture and consistency of flour....so perhaps any other flour of your choice would work too....maybe even
flax meal if you have it. (ground flax seeds)

Ooooooooh *LIGHBULB*  .  Yes, of course:  I know what you mean, now:  the almond flour has more moisture than grain flours and thus basically could be termed "meal", you are right!  They do sell the finely ground "meal' as almond "flour" in the supermarket, and at the HFS.  Thanks, Chloe, for clarifying that.  I was picturing having to grind my own nuts, which to me would nudge the recipe just a hair out of the "super easy" category (although not hard if one has a nut grinder, which actually I DO--not that I use it *lol*).

edited to add:  And good point about not opting to substitute almondbutter--the meal/flour and butter are two totally diff consistencies/animals.

It is all clear to me now!

P.S.  So, now that Chloe has cleared the "almond meal" thing up for me, I must say this DOES seem like it would be super easy, and something that would be great to let kids help with, if you have any of the little doo-dads running around.  It also seems like something like would go over BIG for one of our many work shin-digs that involve bringing in a dish.  It would be easy and these peeps love nothing more than cake and cookies (although, interestingly, the "new guard" of people in the Quality Assurance Dept here, which I've worked in for almost 15 years now, are mercifully getting away from the Velveeta and yellow cake culture and are more prone to do things like order Chinese, which trust me is a radical departure), so for Peppermint Twist, who usually shows up with items such as quinoa tabuleh, to arrive with an item that is readily UNDERSTANDABLE to these folks, would probably shock and blow some minds.  I'll therefore do it!

I wish they would not double space ingredients in recipes. I have to retype these things because I cannot override their formatting. They won't fit in my recipe book.

almond meal...$3.99 for a one pound bag at Trader Joes. I buy 3 at a time and freeze.

All right, that's it:  I officially cannot wait for the new Trader Joe's that they are building in my city to open (won't be for about ten months, but hey, it's coming!).  I've never been more psyched about shopping somewhere I've never set foot in before in my life.

You will find far better produce in your Florida TJs than we have in our nearest store in CT.  I forgot about TJs almond flour.  Same with brown rice pasta.  Good and far less expensive than national brands.

I've been baking with almond meal for sometime, and recently, tried my hand at almond "flour"...made with raw slivered blanched almonds (also from TJ's) and my Blendtech, which is similar to a Vitamix. The jury is still out on which makes a better product...

Almond meal is what is left over from making almond milk, whereas almond flour is just finely ground blanched almonds.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Drea,
I bake with TJ's almond meal, also. In fact, all of my baking recently is with Bobs brown rice flour or TJ's almond meal. I will check out the almond flour next trip down the hill.
