    Where do you guys get your almond meal? That stuff is crazy expensive at the whole foods shop. I found a 5lb bag online (justalmonds.com) for $24, or 10oz bags for $4.20 (affordablesupplements.com).


    I was just wondering if anybody had a less expensive website they order from. Thanks in advance!

    It's been awhile since I bought it, but I think Trader Joe's was around $7 for a pound bag.


    I doubt that you'll find it cheaper than the price for a pound of almonds.

    If you have a food processor, all you have to do is grind up some almonds! I've read that almond flour requires that you blanch them first, but almond meal includes the skins. I found a 10 or 12 oz bag for $14 at Whole Foods, and decided at $10 for a 3 pound bag of raw almonds at Costco I'd rather make my own. Way cheaper, and it's worked for the recipes I've used it in at least!

    I was searching for this today too... justalmonds was the cheapest one I found.

    I'm a little suspicious about justalmonds.com. They claim they're from California, but nowhere on their site do they list a local phone number or address and even their domain name registration information is kept private.

    I wouldn't be overly suspicious; I read an article in the Business section of the newspaper about how California has been producing bumper crops of almonds for the past year or so.
