Almond Flour
 
Anyone use almond flour? Looking for an inexpensive source/brand.

Going to try some almond flour pizza crusts and friend chicken.

Haven't used almond flour before so difficult to comment on brands, plus being in the UK, they'd probably be different. I was wondering though, how that would work out, it's going to taste really marzipanny (is that even a word?) I'd think...unless the addition of sugar is needed for that to occur.

It'll be interesting to see what you think of it.

We found some tonight. I will let you know. We are making pizza crusts and using it for friend chicken this week.

Nice! I use it quite a lot. Great for pie crusts, desserts, muffins. I usually use Bob's Red Mill for it if I buy it pre-made, but lately I've been grinding raw almonds in the food processor for it.

If you use it for fried chicken, I would be sure the have the oil super hot and remove the chicken quickly, maybe finishing it in the oven as the almond meal tends to soak up lots of oil.

Thanks Brute.

Never even seen it or heard of it before. Where do you buy it at? A health food store?

Almond flour, sometimes called almond meal, can be found at a lot of grocery stores in their specialty baking areas. You can also make your own by grinding almonds very finely.

Steve,
If you have a Trader Joes nearby, their own is not quite as fine as Bod's Red Mill, but it costs about a third of BRM. Around here BRM runs about $9, last time I bought some at TJ it was a little over $3.

Thanks Bam. That cost savings is worth checking into. Around here it is $10.50 for 16 ounces.
