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 figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
