Almond Flour

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"I use almond flour with many of my recipes but it is very costly. I want to experiment with a few inspirations for the holidays therefore decided to make my own almond flour. I had a huge bag that I purchased a while ago to make a nut crunch. I used my food processor but I bet you can do the same with a coffee grinder as well. My advice would be to pulse it because I fear if you over blend you will end up with almond butter. It came out perfectly so now off to cooking land!"

Place any remaining almonds chunks back into food processor and pulse. Repeat until all almonds are transformed into flour. Cover container and store flour in refrigerator.

I suggest using a blade-type coffee/nut grinder instead of a coffee mill which gets clogged and cannot handle full size nuts.This will produce a fine powder which makes perfect use in cakes.

Perfect! Store-bought almond flour costs 43 Euros per kilo for me, whereas I can buy organic almonds for 19 Euros per kilo! Thank you for opening my eyes to something so simple yet useful!
