How to Make Almond Flour

Why not improve the ingredients in the foods your family enjoys? This recipe produces 1 ¼ cups of almond flour and requires five short minutes of your time. The single ingredient is almonds and almonds alone.

Which almonds are best for making almond flour? To make almond flour at home, the natural blanched almonds we offer at Glenda’s Farmhouse are perfect! Remember that almond flour and almond meal are made solely from almonds. While the almond meal is made with the skins still on the almonds, almond flour is made from almonds without skin (blanched).

Make almond flour by grinding almonds in a food processor. Add one cup of almonds to the food processor and use the pulse function to process them into the right texture. Keep the sides of the bowl scraped to ensure that the almonds are evenly processed as you press the pulse button for one second at a time for a total of 50 times. A blender is another option for creating almond flour.

For every 1 cup of almonds, the resulting almond flour will be 1 ¼ cups.

Storing Almond Flour

When you keep almond flour on hand for regular use, store it properly. The container should be airtight and kept within a dark cabinet when possible. Your almond flour will keep for up to two weeks in this situation.

You’ll want to put the container in the freezer for more extended storage. To use it, simply remove it from the freezer and let it rest on the countertop for about 20 minutes.
