Need a Substitution for Almond Flour?

Along with many other food sensitivities including gluten, I have a problem with almonds.  That makes it really difficult to bake because a lot of gluten free recipes substitute almond flour/meal for regular flour.  I’ve tried coconut flour and simply replacing the almond flour with gluten free flour but it changes the texture of whatever I’m making which is really frustrating!  One day I was searching for another option and I ran across a website that suggested sesame meal.  Well, I decided to give it a try and it is fantastic!  You simply buy raw sesame seeds, place them in a coffee grinder or food processor and grind the seeds into a flour.  You replace the almond flour with the sesame seed flour in a 1:1 ratio.  It results in that same nutty flavor that is so good when you use almond flour.  Give it a try sometime!  Here is a recipe to try out the substitution that my kids love (especially when I add chocolate chips into the bread)!
