How many almonds make a cup of flour?

I've looked for an answer and can't find any.

I went to Wal Mart to get soy powder for a recipe, and the only kind they had was a shake mix that had 11g carbs per scoop. Yikes.

So, I decided to make Almond Flour. The best value at Wal Mart is around $5.00 for a 1 lb bag of almonds. My husband says that it will not make that much flour. The recipe I have requires 1 cup of almond flour. DH says it would cost me $10 just for the nuts to have a side dish. Grrr.

Does anyone know how many almonds it takes to get 1 cup of almond flour?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

I bought a pound of almond flour, and I got about 4 cups out of it. Because you're taking a pound of almonds and grinding them up, I would assume you'd get the same amount.

I use sliced almonds to make my flour and it is pretty much cup for cup.

Thank you!!

Now I'm kicking myself for not buying the almonds while I was at Wal Mart. I guess I'll have to drive the 30 miles to get some (being rural stinks sometimes). lol.

Thanks again!!!!

6 ounces of almonds makes about 2 cups ground almonds/almond flour, so you'd need 3 ounces for 1 cup.

Wait!! How do you make Almond Flour? Just process them in the food processor?? I'd love to know how to do this!

Thanks!

I bought mine already ground. If your store has a bulk food section they may have it there. Otherwise you can use a food processor, but watch it closely and just pulse it or you may end up with almond butter. I think the pre-ground almonds probably are a bit finer than you can grind yourself.

almond flour

Almond Flour
I went on line and asked how to do it. It is no hard. I got a small chopper cut them 1/2 than chopped until it looked good.
But if you really want to know. Here is the web-site.

You can buy a coffee grinder for about $10 and grind the almonds in that. I do it all the time, and it works great!
