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.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I received the amended records in the mail. I don' think the doctor even read my email with the amendment request since she only corrected one statement I never said...the statement I gave as example while briefly talking to her on the phone the other day. So, I called the office to inquire why the other statements I never said were not corrected. Fortunately, the other staff member answered the phone. I'm surprised she told me this, but it was the best therapy for me so maybe she was meant to say it! She told me she knows what I mean about that one worker because she has to deal with it, too! She said a new office manager starts next week and she gave me her direct emal address to complain about that worker. 
    • Received Results. Looks like not Celiac?
      You've all been so helpful in guiding me what to do.  I did just receive my blood work and have an appt. with my doctor next week.  I wanted her to check it because I have lived a life of being extremely exhausted, migraines/headaches, and anxiety.  My thyroid is balanced and I am healthy (other blood results that were off were low platelet, low protein, high A/G ratio).  I am not good at reading results, but it appears negative to celiac, maybe next steps are trying a gluten-free diet for sensitivity?

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Hello, This is my first post. My 12yr old daughter was diagnosed with ?celiac disease. Her blood test was positive, genetic screen positive and her biopsy abnormal but they are not ready to say she is celiac because her villi are damaged but not gone. We are to adhere to a strict gluten-free diet for 6 months. So far (1 month) we have adjusted well. I am learning to bake again using many many many different flours lol. However I cannot find a good sandwich bread. There are good tasting breads with little or no fiber or heavy dense breads that don't make good sandwiches or toast. She has become very constipated on this gluten-free diet because of the low fiber content of the cereal,rice and breads. We were told no oats for the first year? and no or little dairy for the first month. She has been on a low histamine diet for 4 months now as well. My question is what is the best way to make gluten free bread, oven or bread maker? Does anyone have a good healthy recipe for sandwich bread that a kid would like? We normally eat a soft 5 grain bread before gluten-free. Thank you!
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Thanks so much, gluten-free,  in my hypchondriacal panic I saw that website!  It is good to have an endorsement from a celiac.   I remember seeing quite a few reassuring stories in it along the lines that you describe. Funny isn't as because I now feel far less inclined to eat large amounts of carbohydrate now I have cut back a bit.   It seems the more sugar I ate, the more I wanted to eat.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
