4 Simple Ways to Save on Almond Flour

Almonds
Buying Almond flour can be a bit pricey. In fact if you walk into your local health food store and look at the little packages, with their lovely little price tag, you might have a heart attack as dollar signs drift pass you.

It brings to mind White Christmas: “It’s right in between ouch… and boing.”

But it doesn’t have to be and here are some tried and true tips to help it fit in your budget.

  1. Buy online – it’s pretty much always cheaper.
  2. Buy on sale – sign up for newsletters, save your money so your ready, then pounce when the sale comes in.
  3. Buy in bulk – buying 25 lbs (or more) at a time may seem like a lot, but it saves money and almond flour freezes great. Keep gallon freezer bags and when the box comes divide into 5-6 bags, and keep one in the fridge and the rest in the freezer. Just remember to pull out the next bag when your first is getting low.
  4. Buy with friends- buying in bulk is great, but the more you buy sometimes the more price breaks you get (and you can also split any shipping charges). So call your friends when that sale comes in!

We buy our Almond Flour from Honeyville and it tends to have good prices and great sales.

  1. You can also make your own…then you can use crispy almonds. Obviously a little more work, though.

    Also, you don’t have to take your flour out of the freezer ahead of time. It definitely doesn’t hurt, but you can use it right from the freezer too. I’ve done that many, many times.

    I wish almond flour wasn’t so expensive…but almonds are expensive :P

    1. Your right Mary. The only reason I didn’t mention it is because making your own makes it more expensive. Using these tips we generally get our almond flour for under $5.00 a pound. And by using discount codes and bulk ordering with others my Mom has almost gotten it down to $4.00. :)

      I’ve used the almond flour many times out of the freezer too, but sometimes it can be a little hard.

      1. Is the almond flour you buy soaked/dehydrated? That was always my concern with buying it. If I used my own nuts I knew they would be easier on my gut. Regardless I tried to use it sparingly. No need to go overboard with nuts or sweets :)

        1. No Mary it isn’t, but I haven’t experienced any trouble with it (unless I eat way to much, just like wheat products). I don’t find it causes any more trouble on my gut then soaked almonds – about the same.

        2. Almond flour doesn’t need to be soaked and dehydrated because it is blanched. Blanching removes the brown papery skins, which contain the anti-nutrients, so it’s not a concern.

  2. This is great. I’m actually looking for ways to get almond flour at a cheaper price. When I get some more money, I’m definitely going to buy some almond flour on-line!!! Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
