It may depend upon where the recipe comes from. Some people use the two interchangeably. OTOH, some almond flour is as fine as AP flour. I've never seen anything labeled "Almond Meal" quite that fine.

So if I want to have fine crumb, such as in a cake or a madeleine, then I should use almond flour. But if it doesn't matter so much, such as in chocolate chip cookies, then I could use almond meal?
