Bob’s Red Mill Hazelnut Meal is ground from whole hazelnuts. It pairs deliciously with chocolate—think of that famous chocolate hazelnut spread—or this flour can be folded into beaten egg whites to create hazel nut macaroons. It’s an essential ingredient in recipes like hazelnut flour olive oil cake or hazelnut cookies!
Replace 30% of the wheat flour with hazelnut flour to add wonderful texture and rich, buttery flavor to your baking, while reducing the total carbohydrates. This makes it ideal for those following a low carbohydrate or paleo diet. Hazelnut flour is outstanding in pastries, pie crusts, cakes, cookies, pancakes and quick breads, but this flour can also be used in savory applications. Use this nut flour in place of bread crumbs in meatballs, or as a coating for chicken and fish. Combine with almond flour for a deliciously complex nut flavor.
As with hazelnut butter, you’ll want to store hazelnut flour in the refrigerator or freezer to preserve freshness.
