Is there another flour you can substitute for the almond flour?

This thread is two years old and ShayFL no longer posts here. Purple might be able to help you, but I think the point of this recipe is that it does use almond flour rather than any grains, as it is a Specific Carbohydrate Diet Recipe.

If you don't want to use almond flour, there's really no reason you couldn't use a gluten-free all purpose flour. I like to use carol fenster's blend (sorghum, potato starch and tapioca starch)

Always amazed at the people who use mass quantities of almond flour, considering the price.

For some of us, that's about all there is that we can have if we want anything resembling a baked good ;)

I've never had reason to use huge quantities of almond flour but have had good luck making small batches in a coffee grinder I use for grains. I buy the whole almonds at Sam's Club so they're not too expensive.

Trader Joes also sells almond meal that is pretty cheap. A quick spin in the food processor makes a nice flour without too much trouble, and it is a lot cheaper than Bob's Red mill and some of the others. Making it from whole almonds is cheaper too, but I sometimes have trouble with it staying partly in large pieces with other parts turning into almond butter, but I think that's just my old processor being difficult.

I make my own almond flour at less than 1/3 the cost. Just buy whole alonds and grind them in a coffee grinder.

Any nut flour would likely work though, or any gluten free bake mix.

Does this grind down to a fine enough meal? I've thought about doing it myself, but was concerned it would turn out like BRM's. I love almond flour and want to start cooking with it again.

I make mine in a dedicated blender, in small batches, and while it's sort of meal like, it always bakes up better than one would expect. Then again, I like sort of dense bread as opposed to fluff.
