How to make almond flour


Post holidays are the perfect time to get cracking on some slightly healthier cooking {and baking too!}. Almonds seems to be the the latest health food trend, with all sorts of recipes popping up from almond milk to almond flour. I came across a delicious looking recipe for pumpkin and chocolate chip cookies, which calls for almond flour in place of regular wheat flour. Being in South Korea, it is often a struggle to find ingredients for most recipes, so I went looking on trusty google for a recipe for almond flour. And it couldn't be easier!

All you need is a blender or food processor and blanched almonds (click here for a recipe to blanch your own!).

One cup of flour is equivalent to about 1 cup of almonds.

Simply pop the almonds into the blender and chop away. Make sure not to blend for too long, rather use the pulse function if you can, as you don't want to release the almond oil and be left with a sticky clump. 


Super easy to do. No more excuses about the lack of almond flour in the stores. Now you can make your own, and even sprinkle it over your breakfast of cooked oats as an alternative to whole or sliced almonds...yum!

Happy Baking.
