    Almond Flour

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone here live in New Zealand? Are you able to let me know where I am able to get almond flour from? I have been to every supermarket and about 4 different health stores. I have even tried online gluten free shops.

    Any help would be great.

    You can make your own from whole almonds with a food processor or blender. Small amounts at a time. Don't try to make it too fine or you might make almond butter, which isn't terrible.

    If your Coles and Woolworths are the same as in Oz, you'll find Almond Meal with the various nuts near the flour/sugar/baking stuff.

    We have Woolworths but not Coles. I am Australian so that is what I thought and looked there but nothing. I tried a linseed and almond meal today ut it was disgusting so I will try grinding almonds until I find an alternative. It is annoying though because the reason I love being primal is because I did the 6 meals a thing when gymming all the time and I don't think I can be bothered preparing like that.

    I do my own too. Easy as pie using a Thermomix. 200grams of nuts takes 9 seconds to mill to 'flour'. (not quite as fine as flour but as close as you can get before it turns to paste).

    You can also use ground almonds to make almond milk, and then keep the "grounds" for use in baking or such. I freeze my almond milk left over almonds.

    Hey Brooki, Yep I'm in NZ and i just use the Ground Almonds in the baking section which is the same as almond flour. Woolworths or New World is where I get it from but any supermarket should have it. Good luck
