Homemade Almond Flour

Yes, I've seen recipes where you have to grind the almonds frozen to avoid making a paste! As much as I appreciate those sharing ideas on how to make almond flour, I still prefer this method because the process is not only simple but the baking draws out some of the moisture of the almonds and it enhaces their nutty flavor.

Homemade Almond Flour

12 oz slivered almonds

Preheat the oven at 200 F.

Spray a baking sheet with non stick oil and spread the almonds thoroughly.

Bake for 30 minutes, stirring at 15 minutes. This process is more to dry the almonds before grinding them.

Let them cool at room temperature and put them in the food processor until coarse.

Keep them in an air tight container, preferably in the refrigerator.

See? This recipe is almost effortless!
