Does anyone use this for baking?
Tips.......
suggestions.......
HELP!
I tried it in a recipe recently in place of all purpose flour and the results were disapointingly a big flop :( it was in the oven at 350 F for over an hour (recipe using reg all purpose flour said to cook for 30 minutes) and all that happened was the edges overcooked, almost burned but the rest NEVER set.
The bag said to use in place of all purpose flour in a 1:1 ratio which I did.

I would love to learn better how to use almond flour.

Thanks :)

I bake with it all the time,
Best to use a combination of almond and coconut flour I find.
There are many recipes on the internet that are specifically created to work with these different flours.

Just an FYI @Godsgirl83.... almond flour is heavy, a lot of almonds are in a single cup.

I have found the best recipes tend to be banana loaf and muffins.

Almond flour is great but it’s such a different consistency to flour, you usually need to alter the moisture content a little... no point me going into detail as you have already been given some great links. It’s a good substitute but it’s very calorific and also can go rancid if not used or kept right. Best in the fridge or Just grind almonds for it when you need it:)

I think almond flour is the one to use when making a french macaron.
