And starting with a portion of healthy fats and protein in the form of deliciously crispy, low-carb waffles is even better!</p> <p>Our almond flour waffles with cinnamon come together in a flash, ready to get you fueled and out the door on a weekday. They also make a hearty weekend brunch for friends and family. You can even freeze extras to pop in the toaster for rushed mornings!</p> <h2>How Do I Make Almond Flour?</h2> <p>Almond flour is a staple of low-carb and <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/keto-desserts-to-satisfy" rel="noreferrer">keto baking</a>. But it can also be pricey, at up to $10 per pound—unless you make your own! It’s easy. And making almond flour yourself will help you in your goal of eating well on a <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/keto-on-a-budget" rel="noreferrer">budget</a>.</p> <p>Almond flour is simply what you get when you very finely grind blanched, skinless almonds. It’s not quite the same as almond meal, which has a slightly coarser texture because of the almond skins. While almond meal is great as a <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/low-carb-bread-crumb-substitutes" rel="noreferrer">breading substitute</a>, almond flour is an ideal low-carb replacement for <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/best-low-carb-flour-substitutes" rel="noreferrer">wheat flour</a>.</p> <p>Don’t have almond flour on hand? You can use almond meal to make your own! Just pulse it in a food processor or high-speed blender a few times until the texture more closely resembles that of all-purpose flour. </p> <p>You can also use whole or slivered raw almonds to make almond flour. Make sure that your almonds are skinless (also called <i>blanched</i>)—while the skins add some nutrients and flavor<sup><a target="_blank" href="https://academic.oup.com/jn/article/135/6/1366/4663832" rel="nofollow noreferrer">1</a></sup>, they also create a grainier texture that can affect your final baked goods. </p> <p>To make almond flour at home:</p> <ol> <li>Add 1 cup of blanched, skinless almonds (whole or slivered) to a food processor or high-speed blender. </li> <li>Pulse in 1-second intervals for 10 pulses. </li> <li>Stop and scrape the bowl thoroughly. </li> <li>Repeat 5-6 times, for a total of about 60 1-second pulses, scraping every 10 seconds. </li> </ol> <p>All this stopping and scraping ensures that you’re grinding the almonds into a flour rather than creating almond butter. Be sure to stop if you see the almonds start to form a paste instead of a fine powder.</p> <p>You should get about 1 cup of almond flour, perfect for creating low-carb, gluten-free baked goods like our crispy keto waffles below.</p> <h2>Can I Substitute Coconut Flour for Almond Flour?</h2> <p>Coconut flour is another great keto-friendly baking swap, but it can be tricky to substitute with almond flour.
