Almond Meal (Flour)

So…  you just whipped up a batch of homemade almond milk.  What do you do with all that pulp that’s left over?  Throw it away?  NO!  You can turn it into Almond Meal/Flour and use it in place of some of the flour in your favorite recipes!

This is super easy to do and makes it so you don’t waste any of the almonds you purchase to make your almond milk.  Why pay $8-$12 per pound to buy almond flour at the store when you can just make it yourself?

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Spread the almond pulp evenly over the entire sheet.

Dehydrate the pulp in the oven.  Mine took roughly 3 hours.  After the first hour start stirring up the pulp and then spread it out again about every half-hour to ensure it dries out evenly.  Once it’s dehydrated, throw it in your food processor (or if you don’t have one, you could use a personal sized blender like I did) and pulse it a bit to break up the bigger chunks.

That’s all there is to it!

Almond Meal/Flour

Ingredients:

Preheat your oven to the lowest temperature.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Spread the almond pulp out over the entire baking sheet.  Bake in the oven until pulp is completely dehydrated.  After the first hour, begin stirring up the pulp and then spreading it out again every half hour to ensure it dries out evenly.  Once it’s completely dehydrated and cooled, transfer the pulp to a food processor or blender and pulse a few times to break up the bigger chunks.
