That depends on how finely ground your meal is. Whether or not you can freely swap them out also depends on what recipe you're using it for. You'll only need a 1/2 cup of almonds to yield about 3/4 cup ground almonds (in your food processor), so I might recommend just going out to get them!

Ground almonds are typically not as fine as almond meal so I agree with Kenzi that you should be wary of making the switch. You can grind almonds in a spice/coffee grinder if that helps!

Also depends if almond flour is to be used as replacement of flour. Just measyre after grinding. Important, when grinding bleached whole almonds, add a teaspoon of starch or regular flour to catch the oil that otherwise you will loose on the side of the grinder. www.cooking-class-authentic...
