I am having so much trouble with grains that I am going to try to make some baked goods using nut flours. I saw some almond flour in the store, but it was so expensive. I thought about grinding my own. Would a coffee grinder work? I've heard you can use a blender, but that seems like it would not work as well. Any ideas? Thanks!

I use the blender to grind them into a smooth batter with the liquid from the recipe.

So you just put everything into the blender and mix at once? That sounds easy enough! I think I need to get a better blender though.

Actually, I don't put everything in the blender. I put in the almonds and add the liquid gradually. It blends smoother that way than if you added all the liquid at once, in which case you'd have chunks floating around that never got blended in. It needs to be as thick as possible without getting bound up.

I weigh them or measure them by volume first.

I use a small coffee grinder. I can only do a little at a time, but it grinds it in seconds.
