I am so excited to come across your website! I only wish I had found it sooner! One of my sons is allergic to almonds
what could I use instead of the almond meal? Chickpea flour? Cauliflower flour?
I find this one difficult to substitute because it changes a recipes texture so much!
Thank you for what you are doing to help those of us choosing a healthier way of life!
Hi Tahlia. Thank you so much for your lovely words and Im so glad you find the blog helpful. To replace the almond meal I’m even questioning whether you need it all? I often make frittata’s and Spanish tortilla’s and they don’t ever include almond meal or bread crumbs even. An alternative option however, to try and create that spongier texture, is rice crumbs. Quinoa flakes is an option but the flavour can be off putting. So I’d consider just omitting it or replacing with rice crumbs. Hope this helps. Sharon xx
