How to make Almond Flour, for your homemade pantry

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Once I started making my own almond milk, I knew I would have to come up with ways to use the leftover almond paste. Because the frugal in me wasn't about to have it any other way! Plus I would think that commercial almond flour is made from larger portions of almond paste leftover from the commercial production of almond milk. So why not in my kitchen as well...

As it turns out, making almond flour is soooo easy. Here, let me show you...

Crumble the almond meal onto a large flat baking pan. 

Place in the oven. Preheat to 350-degrees, don't leave, wait for the signal that the oven has reached 350-degrees and immediately turn the oven off. 

Immediately switch on the oven light (to maintain steady warmth) and let the crumbled almond meal dry for approximately 3-4 hours.

Remove from the oven, using a potato masher, gently crumble into smaller pieces while checking for moist pockets. 

Return to the warm oven and let dry another 2-3 hours or as needed to be completely dry.

At this point, you may start cooking and baking with your almond flour. When I did a quick google, there are literally thousands of recipes available.

  1. Well, that was easy AND prevents waste. Have you cooked with this yet?

    1. I am working on a chocolate chip cookie tart, served with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle. Hope to get this shared soon!

  2. Do you have any good recipes using almond flour?

    1. In that process as we speak! Due to our family size I am concentrating on recipes serving 2 - 4 people. Hope to have one to share very soon!

  3. I would love to make my own almond flour! Thanks for the easy tutorial!

  4. Oh good. I've got Fido jars filled with almond "flour" I made much as you did here, only I didn't heat the oven first. My oven light is pretty warm for drying things like this. So far, I haven't found a recipe made with almond flour that we liked enough to make a second time, but I'll keep looking. And I'll watch for any you post as well.

    Thanks for your commitment to frugality and reducing waste. Glad to have found you through the Homesteader Hop. Although I'm a city gal these days, I may yet get to spend my declining years on some land. Meantime, I do what I can.

    1. Hello Kathryn, I believe the texture of the almond flour will put most folks off enjoying it. I have made a few things and will post for Tuesday a tasty cookie, but I believe in future cooking I will use almond flour as part of the recipe and not as the only flour in the recipe. Thanks for visiting.

  5. Thanks for sharing this helpful tutorial with us on the Art of Home-Making Mondays at Strangers & Pilgrims on Earth! :)

  6. Almonds are a miracle food! You can make milk and flour from it. Thanks for sharing on the #WasteLessWednesday Blog Hop!

  7. Hi Melynda,
    What a great idea and a great recipe to have on hand in the pantry. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Full Plate Thursday.
