How To Make Almond Flour // Making your own almond flour is made easy with the help of your Blendtec blender. All you need is one ingredient and a little bit of patience. Within a matter of moments you'll have fresh flour to use in your favorite recipes | Tried and TastyI have been experimenting with different types of flours over the last year or two in my quest to get away from all-purpose flour. Last year was my first real experience with almond flour when I made my Grain Free Blueberry Cookies. They turned out awesome! Coming from not having any idea that life existed outside of white and wheat flour, it’s been so neat to find alternatives for various diets. 

Making your own almond flour is super simple and only requires just a teensy bit of patience. If you blend to long you’ll end up with almond butter {which wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing, just not what you are looking for}. With short bursts of blending, in no time you’ll have yourself fresh almond flour to use in your favorite recipe. With the help of my Blendtec Designer 625 Blender I was able to whip out a batch of flour in no time at all.

      Hi Tasha, that’s a great question. I haven’t personally tried making almond flour from the left over pulp from making almond milk, but I do believe it’s possible. My understanding is that you’ll want to spread the pulp out on a baking tray and dry it out in the oven at about 200 degrees F for ~1.5 hours (stirring it every 30 minutes or so). Once it’s dry, you’ll want to put it into a coffee grinder or a blender to turn it into a fine flour. I hope that helps and let me know how it turns out if you decide to give it a try!

      Love it! I loved the oat and whole wheat, next up coconut flour (although, I have yet to master cooking with it.. tricky bugger!)
