Chef's Notes

* A finely ground almond flour is a great baking substitute if you need a light, gluten-free and protein-filled flour. * Almond flour with a coarser grind may be used as a breading, binder, or wherever a coarsely ground flour is needed - just be careful when cooking it, as it will burn more easily than other flours. * Please refer to our dry grain grinding chart for more details on grinding whole wheat flour.
