Good news and bad news for you. The bad news is Trader Joe’s jacked up the price of their Just Almond Meal from $4.99 all the way up to $6.99 for a 1 lb. bag.
The good news (and it’s pretty good!), they now offer Blanched Almond Flour! Blanched almond flour is made from almonds that have the skins removed, making for a much finer texture which allows for easier baking (as opposed to almond meal which contain the skin and the nut).
The bummer is, blanched almond flour generally costs quite a bit, usually around $10 lb. So, I’m excited that Trader Joe’s now offers it for a low price, just $7.99 for a 1 lb. bag.
Almond flour is a good flour substitute for Paleo, gluten-free and low carb diets. Stick with the cheaper almond meal when using as a breading and spring for the blanched almond flour when baking.
