I bought the almond meal and it is disgusting! I made cookies with it, and as soon as you open the bag you smell this weird smell, and then you taste the smell when you eat the cookies. They were the worst cookies I ever ate, and I couldn't even eat one! Then I ground up my own almonds and the cookies were delicious! Then my friend bought me some again as a surprise, because she knew I was eating healthier. I put the flour in some three cheese zucchini bites and it ruined those, with this horrible disgusting taste. Nobody in my house could eat the cookies or the zucchini bites. Please make this almond meal better. I buy a lot of the other simple truth products, but I will never buy this again, and I'm taking my opened bag back. This product should never be sold.

I don't know if this was just bad luck, but when I tried the almond flour it had a chemical smell as soon as I opened the bag. I was hesitant to use it in my zucchini cheese biscuits, but I went ahead and did. They were totally disgusting! I just make my own almond flour, get it in bulk at Whole Foods, and most of the time buy it from Trader Joe's. I also bought it again from Kroger to give it another chance, and still the same smell and results with a different recipe. :(

I make low carb cheese cake cups with this almond flour and Fathead pizza. And they taste amazing! I have not had any bad batches or weird tastes. I think it is just different from wheat flour. It's a good product.

I want to give a positive opinion after such a scathing review because I think this product is worth it. I usually buy Bob's Red Mill brand, in a pinch and to save about $4, I bought Simple Truth. I couldn't believe how much better my low carb pretzels turned out. Simple Truth grind is much finer and the dough mixed much more smoothly and didn't "break" apart when I rolled it out. It wasn't sticky like I was used to, and so much easier to work with. I was hoping that Simple Truth makes hazelnut flour too, but I'm not finding it. I'll be buying this product again...and to be honest, it tasted JUST as good as Bob's Red Mill brand. I think Christina must have had a one-off rancid package or something, because I didn't notice anything that she'd mentioned.

I use this almond meal in my banana bread and I always end up making more banana bread the next day, as it won't last 24 hours in my house. I absolutely LOVE this stuff!

Just made Almond Flour Blueberries muffins! Gluten free, Paleo, and delicious!
