If you are looking to go grain-free, but don’t want to give up your beloved baked goods, try using almonds — by making them into almond flour or almond meal (yes, all by yourself!). Made from finely ground almonds, this flour alternative is super easy to make. Naturally gluten-free, almond flour is the perfect alternative for those looking to enjoy a satiating and satisfying snack.

Ingredients

1½ cups of Brandless Raw Almonds

Instructions
  1. Place raw almonds, ¼ cup at a time, in a food processor and pulse on low.
  2. Once you have reached a flour-like consistency, add an additional ¼ cup of almonds and repeat until you have pulsed the entire 1½ cups of raw almonds.
  3. Place any remaining almond chunks back into the food processor and pulse until all of the almonds have been transformed into almond flour.
  4. Extra moisture from almond flour may make baked goods more susceptible to mold and spoilage, so store almond flour in a reusable container and place in the refrigerator for up to 6-9 months. Freezing your almond flour may extend the shelf life even further.

Note: Since almond flour contains more moisture than all-purpose flour, a greater quantity is needed when using it as a replacement for other flours in recipes. Generally ¾ cup of all-purpose flour is equivalent to about 1½ cups of almond flour.
