"It is often asked by new home chefs, "what is the difference between almond flour and almond meal?" Basically, there's no point in buying expensive commercial almond flour (unless you use it every day due to preference or a wheat allergy/intolerance) if you only need just a little bit for a recipe. I'm not sure what the ratio is; however many almonds you use will yield a little less almond flour, ie, 1 dry cup of almonds = a little less than 1 cup of almond flour; so let's assume it's 1:1."

"I have a Vitamix and this process is still too time consuming along with the cost of almonds. Hubby said I should just go ahead and purchase almond flour, it is more consistent in texture and can be substituted cup for cup in most recipes for all purpose flour. I can and do make almond meal, that is not difficult. IMHO make your almond meal and purchase your almond flour."
