How to Make Almond Flour

Making your own almond flour is economical and easy. I give instructions for homemade blanched almond flour, making almond flour with the skins still on, and making almond flour from almond milk pulp.

  • 3 Cups Raw almonds


Blanche the Almonds

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil over HI heat.  Add the almonds and let cook for 30 seconds.  Drain the almonds in a colander.  Run cold water over the almonds until the are cool to touch.
  • Remove the skins from the almonds.   The blanching process will help them slip right off.

Dry the almonds

  • Pour the blanched almonds (or almond pulp if you just made almond milk) onto a sheet tray in a single layer.
  • Put in a 200F oven for 1-1.5 hours, stirring occasionally to help with even drying.  Remove from the oven and let cool.

Make the almond flour

  • Pour the almonds (or almond pulp) into a food processor or coffee grinder. You will probably need to work in batches but my food processor was able to hold 3 cups of almonds. Grind until the almonds turn to almond flour.  A coffee grinder will yield a finer ground almond flour.  


  • Store in an air tight container.  It will stays fresh in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.  If stored in the pantry, it has a shorter shelf life than when stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
