First, though, we should define the difference between almond meal recipes and almond flour recipes. Almond meal is usually made from unpeeled and raw almonds¹.

Almond flour, on the other hand, is made from blanched and peeled almonds², according to The Minimalist Baker³.

Essentially, almond flour has a lighter color and is more refined. Therefore, the almond meal will give you a rougher and crunchier texture. 

Well, let's get into it! Here are the five best homemade almond meal recipes for your friends and family.
