homemade almond flour.

You may remember back in December when I posted a little tutorial for homemade almond milk.. and how I mentioned at the end that you can use the resulting pulp to make either almond meal or almond flour..

Well a few nights ago I finally got around to giving it a try! After each batch of almond milk I froze the pulp until I had what seemed to be a decent amount for making flour.

I suppose I technically made almond meal not almond flour.. But whatever. Meal contains the little almond “peels” and flour does not. They can be used interchangeably.

I spread out all of the pulp onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper as the oven was preheating (set to 200 degrees).

I let the pulp dry out for about 90 minutes. I moved it around a few times with a wooden spoon.

After it seemed dried out I took it out and it looked like this:

Obviously not quite flower.

In little bits, maybe a cup at time, I blended it using my immersion blender.

After blending it all I put it into a jar and then I had a jar of almond flour!

This can be used as a gluten free substitute for flour in any recipe! I’m planning to make my “famous” chocolate chip cookies with it! Yum! :)
