    Where to find almond flour in Canada?

    Primal Fuel
    Since most paleo recipes use almond flour, I need to find a good source for it.

    Granted, I live in small town Sask, so I don't have many options.

    Bulk Barn has it but its quite coarse, so it doesn't work for the recipes.

    Any Canadian online sources that are good and relatively cheap?
    Needing some accountability, so here's my stats:
    34yrs old, 5'5"
    CW: 163lbs (07/2014)
    GW: 135lbs or less
    Eating mainly paleo, but including a bit of white rice (don't call the Paleo Police!)

    I buy bob's red mill, and it can be found in Superstore, Nester's Market, and most organic/'health food' stores and (surprisingly) certain produce markets. You can probably get it from Amazon.com too.

    I can't do amazon.com bc if it does ship to Canada the cost is high and they tack on customs fees.

    I have bought from here a few times: nuts.com

    They ship Puralator and the fees weren't the usual 50+% S&H and broker fees of the total order we get slammed with from UPS.

    If losing weight is a goal... almond flour is a trap of enormous proportions IMO.


    YMMV.
    And I don't really know what your goals are.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    If you are going to use the almond as a paste or a "cream" then cut out the middle man and make it wet from the nuts anyway - some water and a food processor or "blender". However from experience you will need to run the processor for a longer time than just whipping up a smoothie, they are tough little boogers.
    For white almond paste or milk you will need to blanch the almonds first, soak them in boiling water for a while then cool and skin them.

    The almond flour at Bulk Barn is about the least course of the kinds I tried...you won't find almond flour that's as fine as wheat flour.
    That said, you could try blitzing a small bit at a time in a coffee grinder to get it more fine, but you might end up with almond butter in your coffee grinder, too.
    Making it yourself is easy, but I can never get the grind very consistent. Also, I second the comment about it being a calorie bomb. What little paleo-ifying I do of baked goods, I much prefer coconut flour, or a baking blend I have which is a mix of cassava, coconut, potato and rice flours.
