Hazelnut Flour Vs Almond Flour

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc  
    • I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?
