What is the best alternative to Ground Almonds?
Closed

Hello All

I have quite a severe nut allergy, but I love baking for my family and friends. I have found that many recipes for sweet biscuits and cakes contain ground Almonds, which bring me out in a rash. Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone have any ideas what I can use as a substitute?

Years ago when I did a lot of cooking I could not afford ground almonds ,instead I used to use fine bread-crumbs ,and add a few drops essence .I hope you are not allergic to almond essence .If not you could try this .

If you want texture anything like semolina or ground rice, or just leave out that ingredient from the recipe.
Recipes are a guide and not set in stone so have a play around and see what works best.

Ground rice or semolina flavoured with synthetic almond essence should work fine.

Hi. Try using a Almond flavouring (you can buy a substitute which does not contain nuts) and use semolina or ground rice to make uo the weight required in the recipe

This is a hard one. I hate almonds but I am not allergic to them so I avoid anything that contains them. If you are not allergic to nuts like hazel nuts or pistachio nuts you could use them instead, but for ground nuts it could be very expensive to grind them up into a big enough quantity. Holland and barret or Julian Graves may be able to help you. I wonder if you could substitute rice flour for the almonds in biscuits as it has the same sort of consistancy but I have never tried it.
