  • 1/2 cup organic almonds with skin.


  • • Bring 2 cups water to boil.
    • Soak 1/2 cups almonds in the boiling water for 5 minutes.
    • After 5 minutes strain the soaked almonds and cool them down immediately under running tap water.
    • Peel the skins of the almonds.
    • Next lay the blanched almonds flat on a clean & dry baking sheet.
    • Leave them overnight to air dry completely.
    • Next take the blanched almonds in a food processor and give them a good churn.
    • Pause and churn until you achieve the desired flour-like consistency. Please note that nut flours are not as fine as all-purpose flour.
    • Sieve them a few times and churn the bigger pieces or the lumps one more time.
    • Store in an airtight container.


  • Do not boil the almonds, instead soak them in very hot water. We just want to make the skin wet, so that it comes off easily, we do not want any water in our nuts.
  • Flash soaking them for 5 minutes will prevent the almonds from soaking up a lot of water.
  • Air drying the almonds for at least 8-10 hours is a must.
  • Do not grind them at one go ever, instead churn, pause & repeat until you get a flour-like consistency. This will prevent the nuts from attaining a buttery consistency.
  • Sieve the gluten-free nut flour a few times and churn the lumps or bigger pieces one more time.
  • The home-made almond flour from blanched almonds can be stored airtight container for 8 weeks at room temperature & can be refrigerated for longer shelf life.
  • Blanching the almonds at home will give you the best gluten-free almond flour as compared to store bought blanched almonds.
  • For beautiful nut flour the nuts has to be completely dry.
