How To Make Almond Flour

Gluten-free flour can be pricey, so why not make your own? This almond flour is great for baking, pretty simple to make, and a lot more cost-efficient.
  1. Blanch the almonds – you can buy almonds already blanched (without their skin), but it’s pretty easy to do yourself. Boil the almonds for 1-2 minutes. When cool, rub off the skin with a cloth or your hand. Allow to dry COMPLETELY before continuing, to avoid making your flour into almond butter.
  2. Blend until fine – pulse until you get a fine grain, time will depend on your blender or food processor. Be careful not to over pulse or you will end up with almond butter. Try using a sieve, pouring the mixture through it, isolating the chunkier parts of almond still in need of grinding.
  3. Use immediately or store in the fridge for 3-6 months
For almond meal, simply blend for less time. For almond butter, add a tiny bit of water and blend for a ridiculously long time. There are lots of reasons to love almond flour; the taste, the texture, and the health benefits to name a few, so try this out for your next baking adventure.
