  • 1 ½ cups raw almonds (sliced or whole)


  1. 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. 
  2. Check your blender for bits of nuts and continue blending, occasionally removing your blender from the base and shaking to ensure all nuts are well blended.

  3. Transfer to a jar or container and store up to 1 month unrefrigerated, often longer. See notes for recipe suggestions.
