Hazelnut meal is made from pure ground hazelnuts. The meal has a sweet, nutty flavour and adds a delicious rich flavour to baked goods. Hazelnuts are rich in protein, monounsaturated fat, vitamin E, manganese and other essential nutrients. They are a good source of dietary fibre and are low in carbohydrates. My brand of choice is Bob's Red Mill finely ground Hazelnut Meal.
