They're used pretty much interchangeably, both the products and the terms.

Never thought to grind my own. That's a great tip. I am going to have to look into that! Thanks Houndlover1.

When I googled almond meal vs. almond flour, it said that there was no difference between the two.

I grind my own from almonds with skin on in the food processor and also make my own almond butter. I just bought a 25 lb box of raw almonds.
Mine is definitely a little courser than the blanched almond meal but works great for cakes and everything else. It all depends what texture you expect from the finished product. I used to make cakes from whole-grain flours, too, when I still used grains.

Thanks all! I do not have either as of now but I see some recipes calling for meal and some for the flour. My SIL just got the flour and made waffles and said they were delish! I am thinking of making a low carb cheesecake. emoticon

Jenn - As long as it's not for a white cake, you could try it. No since letting the almond meal go to waste. You could probably go online and type in 'recipes with almond meal' and a link would show up for you.

Let me know how your baking turns out.

Thank you JLKL1980. That is pretty interesting. I am wondering if it matters than if you use one in place of the other. ie; and recipe calls for almond flour but all you have is almond meal?

Jenn - Apparently, almond flour has been blanched and the outer skin of the almond taken off before being ground into flour. Almond meal is ground with the skin on. The flour is finer and more suitable for cakes and such.

Here is the link where I found the info:
