I think it has to do with the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAS) that almonds contain. Once the nut gets ground into a meal, the oxidation occurs faster, and it could be inflammatory.
Having said that, it's definitely okay to bake Paleo - "friendly" desserts with almond meal as long as it doesn't become a daily occurrence.
