Almonds are not wheat. Regular Almond meal is good, but Fine Almond meal is much better. Always use parchment paper because of the turning process. Almond meal and Almond flour are both finely ground almonds and there is NO official difference between the two products..

Almond Flour is made from very finely ground almonds. The almonds in almond flour have been processed (slightly- not processed in a bad way!) The skins of the almonds have been removed so that the desirable fine texture of flour can be achieved. They are blanched, so that the flour is a crisp white color.
Almond Meal Meal in general, are made by a similar method as flour. The final grain or particle size is just a bit larger,it hasn’t been ground as finely as flour. Almond meal, though, is typically made from unblanched almonds with the skins on —the skin holds additional nutrients that are lost when they are removed.
