I recently discovered that I can have my grain-free cookie and eat it too. Have you ever tasted an almond flour cookie? Or my almond flour raisin cookies? Delicious. I am not opposed to grains. I do love quinoa. I just try to limit my grain in-take. Besides, an almond cookie made with coconut flour, almond flour and coconut oil is much healthier, rather tasty and super easy to bake. Even I was able to pull off the cookies without a hitch.
The only problem I had when I stumble upon all these almond flour recipes was: “Where do I buy organic almond flour?” and “Couldn’t I just grind up almonds to make flour?” Boy, was I was right!
Easy Homemade Almond Flour

- This should take 20 to 30 seconds.
- Voila- almond flour. It is that easy.
Tips and Notes
- I used non-blanched almonds to make my flour. I have read if you use blanched it will make an even more flour like texture. Let me know if you try it.
- I pulsed 1 cup of almonds at a time to make sure I didn’t end up with my awesome almond butter, which wouldn’t have been a bad thing, just not what I was going for.
- I am pretty confident a food processor would work well to create almond flour. I personally have not tried it, but from my food processor experiences, it just might be a little more grainer.
