I love almond flour. It is so useful for baking and is low carb and paleo. It's so versatile. You can make breads, cakes, pie crusts, all kinds of stuff. The downside? It is hard to find and is expensive. I'm lucky to live in a city where there are a few places to find it but at my local Target, it is $11.50 a lb. I could drive across town to get it for $8 a lb but that is a pain and I'm using gas money. My solution? Make my own!
Two 10 oz bags of almond slivers
A Magic Bullet or Food Processor
Pour slivered almonds into the Magic Bullet and in short pulses (I did around 10 seconds at a time to avoid overheating the bullet) process until you have almond flour! Easy peasy. Why didn't I think of this sooner? For a couple minutes of my time, I get almond flour for $6.40/lb. I might even be able to get it lower if I can find cheaper almond slivers.
Now off to my Saturday baking!
