    Almond meal? Something I’ve never come across. What would you use as a substitute? Especially as I cannot stand almonds in any shape or form. Looked good until I read about almonds.

    Almond meal is almond ground until it resembles flour: you can use any type of ground nut for this purpose – I use almond as it adds a bit of sweetness allowing for a sweet cheesecake with a reduction in the amount of added sugar.
