important tips while making almond meal

  • Almonds start to release oil very quickly, so make sure to pause after every few pulses.
  • The best way is to grind for a few seconds, pause, release ground almond clusters, and continue grinding again for a few seconds.
  • Make sure not to go too far otherwise almonds will start turning into butter.
  • You can keep the texture of ground almonds as you desire. Either keep it coarse or go with fine texture.

1/2 cup raw almonds (whole or sliced)

Instructions :

  • Add almonds to a high speed blender and blend on high until a fine, powdery flour is achieved. We recommend turning the blender on the highest setting for 5-10 seconds. Then stop, shake the blender, and hit the sides to shake loose any clumps that have formed. Blend again until fine and powdery — all in all about 10-15 seconds of blending. You’ll know you’ve gone too far if it starts turning to almond butter or clumping up on the sides. 
  • Transfer to a jar or container and store up to 1 month unrefrigerated, often longer.
