Almond flour is ground almond. You can get it in any supermarket.

Just out of curiousity, what can you do with almond and coconut flours? Can they be substituted for wheat flour 1:1 in recipes for baked goods. It sounds delicious, as I'm a huge fan of both almonds and coconut.

And I make pancakes with a mix of oats, coconut flour, egg & mik. I also add it to dry porridge oats and cold milk and have it for breakfast. Both are very high in calories, if you made a cake it would have a shocking amount of calories. I think it would be best to make a mixture, since coconut flour is so high in fat (~65%) you could leave out some fat/butter in your recipes. Not sure how cakes would turn out, but pancakes are pretty fool proof.

you can use them to make gluten free and low carb cookies and cakes, almonds in particular make excellent cookies. Today I made the most amazing brownies ever usng black beans and ground almonds instead of flour.

I used to use almond flour but I've switched to coconut simply because of the high omega 6 content and the fact that frying a polyunsaturated fat is not really a good idea.

A few almonds are fine but 200g of fried ground almonds is probably a little better than wheat flour but still to be avoided I think. Sorry to be a party pooper

El Dangeroso, I came across this simple recipe which involves frying some almond flour (recipe from MarksDailyApple) : http://blog.myrrhmade.com/2010/08/al...ached-egg.html

So that's a pretty bad idea then? How about coconut flour? Is that as bad/should be avoided when frying?

Feel free to recommend a replacement!
