Pecan meal as a replacement in Fantastic Flour Mix

Has anyone tried substituting pecan meal for the almond meal in the Fantastic Flour Mix? I am very happy with the mix as it currently performs but during a visit to my local bulk foods store this morning I inadvertently picked up the pecan meal rather than the almond meal and noticed that the price was $4.00 a pound rather than the higher price of the almond meal. Just wondering how it would perform in this mix.

Almonds have very little flavor compared to pecans. I think the pecan meal will impact your final baked goods in flavor more that you realize, but maybe not. For certain baked goods, like cookies and cake you will put nuts in, that might not be an issue. For a white cake and some things, probably will be an issue. But that's just a total guess on my part.

I need to make some bread tomorrow and I was very pleased with the Einkorn loaf I made last time. Think I will try subbing pecan meal for the almond flour in the recipe. I expect it to look more like whole wheat bread. We will see how it affects the end result on flavor and texture.

Overall a great success with the pecan meal. My biggest problem is that my olive oil is not the extra virgin extra light variety so it produces a product with some flavor of olive oil which I can live with until I run out of this and need to purchase more. The pecan meal has a slightly higher fat content than almond meal which I think may have resulted in a crispier crust on the finished baked bread and was also crisper when toasted. Nutrition values with using the pecan meal and everything else remaining the same as Buttoni's original recipe is: 77 Calories; 10g Fat (70.3% calories from fat); 5g Protein; 4g Carbohydrate; 3g Dietary Fiber; 66mg Cholesterol; 188mg Sodium. with 16 slices. I like to cut mine into 20 slices just because I prefer thin bread. It is substantial enough to maintain its form cutting into 20 slices and is not fragile when handling. Produces a nice crisp toast. Excuse the blurry pics. My camera and I are having a difference of opinion and I have yet to convince it that I am boss.

Pecan meal works really well for chocolate recipes.

I used Buttoni's Einkorn Loaf recipe here
It is the first einkorn recipe that I have tried. I just subbed the almond flour in the recipe with pecan meal. Any recipe that calls for almond flour I just use almond meal so I thought I would give this a try. Next time I make up a batch of Fantastic Flour Mix I am going to use the pecan meal also and see what happens with that.

Good going!

I love pecans and pecan meal. So glad about the Einkorn loaf.
In a month or two it will be cool enough to start baking again.
Let us know how the Fantastic Flour mix works with Pecan meal.
I have a big bag of it in my garage freezer.
