Learn how to make almond flour at home with this easy recipe. You only need 1 ingredient! 

You can have peace of mind knowing you are using almond flour made from high-quality fresh ingredients. You’ll also enjoy the satisfaction of creating a versatile gluten-free ingredient right in your own kitchen. 

Plus, it’s surprisingly simple, all you need is one ingredient and a few minutes of grinding to achieve a fine, gluten-free flour perfect for your favorite recipes.

Tips For Making Almond Flour At Home

  • Use Blanched Almonds: Blanched almonds give the flour a finer texture. If you use skin-on almonds, the flour will have a texture similar to almond meal. 
  • Use A Dry Blender/Food Processor: If your food processor or blender is wet, the almonds will clump together as you process them into flour. Wipe your food processor or blender dry with paper towels before you make the almond flour to prevent clumping. 
  • Do Not Go Overboard: Do not grind more than 8 ounces of almonds at a time. The almonds will not be evenly ground into a fine flour if you use more than this. Some of it will be superfine, while the rest of it is coarse. 
  • Blend In Short Bursts: Pulsing the almonds in short bursts prevents your appliance from overheating, which can affect the texture of the flour. Overheating can cause the almonds to release their natural oils, resulting in a clumpy and greasy consistency rather than the desired fine, powdery flour.
  • Sift The Finished Product: If you prefer a finer texture or want your baked goods to have a lighter crumb, sift the almond flour after you grind it. It will get rid of any large pieces of almonds.

How To Make Almond Flour At Home From Almond Pulp

To make almond flour from almond pulp: 

  1. Spread the almond pulp evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 
  2. Bake the almond pulp in a 200°F (95°C) oven for 2-3 hours until it completely dries out. 
  3. Transfer the almond pulp to a high-power food processor or blender. Blend until finely ground into a flour-like consistency. 
  4. Sift the ground almond flour to remove any larger pieces, if desired. 
  5. Put the almond flour in an airtight container and store it in the dark pantry, refrigerator, or freezer for optimal freshness.

Is almond flour just ground almonds?

Almond flour is finely ground blanched almonds (almonds with the skin removed). It has a fine texture and a light brown color. Ground almonds are a little bit different. They have the skin on when they are ground into flour. The unpeeled almonds create a light-colored fine flour, with flecks of brown running throughout the almond skins. 

How much almond flour does 1 cup of almonds make?

A cup of almonds makes 1 1/4 cup of almond flour. In terms of weight, 1 cup of almonds (5.2 ounces) makes 147 grams of almond flour. 

Can you use roasted almonds to make almond flour?

Yes, you can use roasted almonds to make almond flour. But remember that it will give the flour a slightly different flavor than raw almonds. Roasted almonds give the flour a nuttier and richer taste, which can add depth to your recipes. However, the texture of the flour may be slightly coarser due to the oils released during roasting. If using roasted almonds, ensure they are completely cooled before grinding to prevent the oils from causing clumping in the flour. Adjust the grinding time accordingly to achieve the desired consistency.

Can you use salted almonds to make almond flour?

No. Do not use salted almonds to make almond flour. The salt can alter the flavor of the flour, which can affect the flavor of your recipes. You can try to wash the almonds to remove the salt, but the flour will still have a salty flavor. It’s best to use unsalted almonds for making almond flour.

Storing Homemade Almond Flour 

Place the homemade almond flour in an airtight container. Place the almond flour in a cool, dark pantry, fridge, or freezer. The almond flour will last for 1 year as long as it does not come into contact with heat or moisture.
