  • Help me buy Ghee, Coconut & Almond Flour

    I'm sure this has been brought up before, so I apologize for being lazy!

    I cannot find a store that has good prices on ghee, almond flour, and coconut products (flour, milk, etc.). Sure there's a "whole paycheck" in town but the products there are prohibitively expensive. Does anyone know any good websites that sells this stuff? Are there any other primal replacement cooking goods I should know about?

    Your help is very appreciated!

    Trader Joe's carries almond flour.
    I have not looked for the others but I bet ethnic stores carry them.

      according to Elana's Pantry, there's only one kind of almond flour to get:

      I suppose it depends on what you're going to use it for...

      I use Bob's Red Mill coconut flour (but will buy "Let's Do Organic" from Amazon next time I order).

      I've never bought coconut milk, just coconut oil (from Tropical Traditions).

        you can make your own ghee! buy some unsalted organic butter, cheese cloth, and a fine mesh strainer here's a link:

        it takes about 30mins total give or take...and is a whole lot cheaper than $8.00/lb

          As crazy as it might sound...... Amazon.

          They tend to have quite a few options and you might have to do a little side research on the quality and to make sure there aren't any weird additional ingredients but it's not a bad place to start.

          The almond flour I got from them was excellent and much cheaper than I would have paid if I'd bought it locally.

            Make your own ghee - it's REALLY easy, check youtube for instructions. Plus, you can be sure there are no additives unlike store-bought ghee. I personally love Kerrygold Irish butter. I got AF from Trader Joe's for a reasonable price. As for Coconut milk, most grocery stores carry them. Whole Paycheck's store brand is inexpensive. I've used Bob's Red Mill coconut flour - a small pack goes a long way. I like the Let's Do Organic brand for other coconut products. And then there's Amazon.

                I just went to Kroger today.... got 4 bags of Bob's Red Mill Almond Flour for like $2.02/pkg. It was on sale cause it was nearing the sell by date. I made some banana bread today and put the rest of the flour in the freezer. Stuff is regularly $10.49 or something... needless to say, I grabbed every single package that was left. lol.

                  Thanks for the suggestions! I will probably order from Amazon this weekend. Great posts on how to make ghee, I didn't even consider that! You guys are so helpful.

                    Almond meal - www.honeyvillegrains.com, $29.00 for 5 lbs. They have a blanched one and one with skins ground in. Both are fabulous.

                        I asked a coworker of mine if she knew a good source and she told me about this website:
                        http://www.nutsonline.com/

                        This could do some damage to my wallet. They have everything that's hard to find for pretty good prices. Dark chocolate, coconut products, nuts, snacks, seeds...
