Help! Almond Meal As A Substitute For Dry Milk?

Recommended Posts

HELP! Can I use almond meal as a substitute for dry milk in a recipe? I am allergic to milk and had read somewhere that almond meal can be used in place of dry milk. I have never heard of this. Any ideas? I also thought about using almond breeze milk or ricedream milk as a sub and then decreasing the other liquid (like water) or increasing the flour if there are no other liquids. Does this sound right or make any sense?

Both the featherlight bread and pizza crust recipes I make regularly call out "dry milk or almond meal" as an ingredient. I normally use the almond meal, as it gives a great flavor.

I use Vance's Dari Free as a substitution for dry milk. It comes as a powder that you mix with water.

The almond meal should work fine, I was just offering another option :)

I am dairy sensitive and use almond meal in all my baked goods, especially if the recipe calls for powdered milk (in which case I use measure for measure). I believe it's the protein in powdered milk that is being introduced into the flour mix, and almond meal adds that.

I also use Almond Breeze in place of milk and don't find I need to adjust the amount of liquid. The only things I don't use it for that calls for milk are gravies and mashed potatoes, as the flavor is just not right - sort of tastes too sweet or something.
