Substitute Almond Flour in Baking

I love to bake but I am doing low carb so I have tried to find a good alternative to white flour. I tried soy but did not like the texture. Recently I tried almond flour which usually isn't on the grocery shelf so I grind up whole almonds in my blender. If I buy salted which are cheaper (about $2.50 an 8 oz can at Dollar General), I just omit the salt in the recipe. I am still experimenting because it doesn't work in every recipe but it makes a great banana bread.

HI, I use almond flour or ground almonds not only for baking but also for thickening sauces and gravy. I am on a low Gl diet and this is one way to keep the carbs low, also I live in Spain in an area that cultivates almonds so they are readily available. Usually I buy my almonds with the skins on as these are more healthy, but it is easy to blanch them if this is preferred.
