Default almond flour/almond meal?

Are the flour and meal the same thing? I bought a bag this week and it says flour/meal. Just want to make sure, as I tried to make the lc pancakes yesterday, and I didn't like them at all....

Not all almond flour/meal is created equal for different applications.

I used to use Bob's and it's okay, but Honeyville's is now my go-to flour. It's lighter and makes muffins and pancakes more cake-like.

For pancakes, I also add a bit of baking powder, and they're remarkably fluffy. They even bubble like conventional ones.

That's what I have is Bob's. Didn't like the texture. Maybe would have been better if I did add baking powder. Do you order the Honeyville online?

Honeyville is my choice as well & I order the 5-pound bag online.

I do keep a small bag of natural unblanched almond meal on hand, only because it looks like buttered/browned bread crumbs when I sprinkle it over a casserole or baked fish filets, etc.

Just seems too weird to me like soy milk or coconut "milk" (not the real coconut milk or oil but the one diluted and packaged to resemble cow's milk).

Also, I also eat probably about 1/2 cup of actual almonds most days so I don't need more. That's only about a gram of carbs, so no biggie. But, in spite of being nice and high in fat and most of it is MUFA, there's a little too much PUFA for my comfort and it is ALL omega 6.

Salim - FitDay shows 1/2 cup of almonds as 14 gms of carbs. How do you get 1 gm?

Almond flour is just almonds with the paper removed and then ground finely. Doesn't seem weird to me...

That said it is way to easy for me to overeat "low-carb" baked goods. Then it ends up being very much NOT low-carb. I chalk that up to me having trouble with sweet flavors more than the almond flour though.
