Hazelnut Flour Vs Almond Flour
0

11 posts in this topic

Are these 2 flours pretty much interchangeable? I am going to try some of Elana's Pantry recipes & I have some almond flour but not enough for everything I'd like to try but I also have some Hazelnut flour. How do you think it would work if I used the Hazelnut instead of Almond in say the Muesli Scones recipe? Or the biscuit recipe?

I have no idea, but what you need to be concerned about is the grind on top of mixing them. If one is coarse and the other fine...that can be an issue.

I don't know how those flours absorb liquids/fats differently or brown.

You can try it, just don't get discouraged if it doesn't work.

They may not be interchangeable. Different texture, different taste, etc. It's hard to say, hon.

 

If you want to try it, go for it. Some of my best baking/cooking successes came from experimenting. (i.e what may be construed as disasters)  :lol:

 

I tried to make something new today (it called for cashew butter but I was out of that)

I subbed sunflower butter....

 

it was great ! except the loaf turned GREEN! 

 

yes, sunflower butter can do that apparently, so we'll have a new, very cool paleo loaf for St. Paddy's... LOL

St. Patty's Day here we come! :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

 

I think the hazelnut & the almond are about the same grind wise. I'm going to play with it some. Thanks IH & Prickly! 

Oh, I KNOW about the trash can disasters. Makes the trash weight a lot. :lol:  :lol:

You know people will remember that and beg for the recipe in March. I never heard of that, I'd be a little freaked and and definitely hitting the internet before I was brave enough to eat something that turned a weird color on accident.

Well if you look at sunflower butter next to other nut butters, the sunflower has a decidedly green cast to it in comparison.  Just sayin'.....

It's perfectly safe, ( I googled my face off and everyone who bakes with it had the same story...cookies, bread, etc...the

chlorophyll in the seeds  reacts with the baking soda, which turns it a lovely shade of green)

and the chemist hubs was all excited by that LOL

 

and it tastes awesome.

 

Hilarious, though..... want a pic? I can send via email.  :lol: it  made me go...wtf?

I have had good luck interchanging almond, hazelnut and cashew flours, so long as they are a similar grind. (Chestnut flour reacts differently and so is not a good sub, at least not without some modifications that I have yet to figure out.) :)

Yes! Sunflower butter has chlorogenic acid that reacts with the baking soda and turns a perfect shade of Kelly green as the baked goods cool. I have read that you can reduce the baking soda by half if you do not want green baked goods. But otherwise, perfect for March 17th!

Edit: I see you already posted this info!

It was a paleo loaf by Danielle Walker.

 

I was supposed to be making plain bread, realized I was out of cashew butter and waiting on a delivery of it,  but

I had already whipped 4 egg whites and decided to go for it with the sunflower seed butter.

 

I'll have J take a pic later. It's pretty funny.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
