I have a question about the recipe "Extra Tender Meatballs" from Merrill Stubbs. Can I substitute an alternative flour say almond meal or coconut flour and if so how much?
Afraid I haven't tried a substitution like this. Hopefully someone else with experience will weigh in!
Do you mean instead of the breadcrumbs? Is it gluten that you are trying to avoid? You could use a gluten free bread crumb if thats the case. I once subbed barley flour for breadcrumbs in a chicken loaf and it was ok but a bit gummy a different texture.
Almond meal (not flour) would be a good sub. Coconut flour absorbs way too much liquid.
Came across this chart today: http://www.joyoushealth.com/blog/2015/01/12/flour-substitution-chart/
