What does this mean? 3 ounces almond flour, 3/4 cup

I'm working on making Linda Sue's "graham cracker crust", and I am confused.. what does the following mean?

3 ounces almond flour, 3/4 cup

3/4 cup is like 7 ounces, 3 ounces is like 1/3 cup...

Does she mean 3/4 cup PLUS 3 ounces more?

I have all the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, and I'm stuck on this one.

Here's her recipe:

Wish I could help you! I was just making the Pumpkin Pound cake and had a similar problem. It called for 6 ozs almond flour...about 2 cups. Two cups was way more than 6 ozs. It' in the oven now....we'll see what happens! I wish we wouldn't go back and forth between cups and ounces inthese recipes! Too hard for me!!

I think the cup amount is a measurement (as in a measuring cup) and the ounce is a weight (as on a scale). Use one or the other measurements, not both.

What it means is that if you fill a 3/4 cup measuring cup with almond flour and then dump it on a food scale, it will weigh approximately 3 ounces. The numbers you see on your measuring cup are "fluid" ounces and not the same thing as ounces of weight. I include both measurements for those who don't own a food scale and must rely on measuring cups. Weighing is a more accurate way to know that you're using the right amount, but not everyone has a scale. To get accurate carb counts for the ingredients in my recipes, I use weight (in ounces or grams) rather than volume (measuring cups), but I also measure the ingredients with cups to make it easier for people who use my recipes. Sorry for any confusion.
