What's the difference between marzipan and almond paste
If you don't look too close, marzipan and almond paste seem the same. There is a slight difference and just to add extra fun, it will vary depending upon what country you are from!
In the USA, marzipan and almond paste are different due to the ratio of the almonds to sugar. In the UK they are much the same thing.
I find a slight difference in texture but it may vary on the recipe. Marzipan should be easier to roll out, with almond paste being slightly coarser in texture but softer.
However, these difference are for recipes with sugar, and when low carb sweeteners are used, they may act slightly differently and yield a slightly different texture.
Just 5 ingredients are used to make this sugar free almond paste recipe. For the powdered low carb sweetener we used allulose.
Make your own low carb powdered sweetener by running the granular sweetener through your coffee grinder.

As this recipe uses an egg white, it's not vegan. For a vegan version, try this low carb marzipan recipe. It will also store longer!
How to store almond paste
Keep the almond paste tightly wrapped in cling film and store in the refrigerator. It should last up to 10 days.
To freeze, make sure that it is covered tightly with cling film and store in an air tight container or zip lock bag. It should last up to 4 months in the freezer.
If your almond paste is too crumbly, massage it with clean hands. The heat from your hands should loosen up the mixture.
You can make your own almond flour to make this recipe. Grind up blanched almonds in a food processor. In all honesty, it takes a while but if you have a large batch to hand, make some almond paste too.
