Recipe by Cindy Anschutz Barbieri
"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!"

almonds, or as needed
I found the almond meal I made to be just as good as the store, but better. The stuff at the store is really dry. I made it in the Vitamix blender, except with peeled almonds. It works fine in recipes and stores well in the freezer for long-term use.
Almond flour is not something I use very often but I do keep a supply of various nuts in the freezer for baking. I have used this method for years with great results and I can make just enough for a recipe or freeze it for future use. Thanks for sharing!
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!
