Where Do You Buy Hazelnut Flour?

14 posts in this topic

I have looked everywhere, even at Nature's Pharm, the new ALMOST all gluten free health food store in Castleton and no one carries it.

Does anyone know where to order it?

If I could find a VERY affordable grinder, I could :)

While I don't know if it would work, I bought a Mr. Coffee grinder model IDS77 (larger capacity) with 3 grind settings, which I used to try and make brown rice flour finer. I don't know how fine you need it...I bought some BRM almond meal/flour and I think I could grind it like that. Is that fine enough...or do you need a true flour? I've also used a blender to grind flax seed. I can't imagine spending a lot of money to buy an actual flour mill.

ETA: I think I could put in about 1/2 cup at a time so it's much larger than my Krups coffee grinder, which has only been used for coffee.

It has mixed reviews on Amazon (like everything else) and obviously is meant to grind coffee beans. But it's so cheap, I figured I had nothing to lose.

Or possibly a blender, depending on how fine you need it.

Where I buy my hazelnut flour is: http://www.holmquisthazelnuts.com/Products/Hazelnut-Flour-1-lb__41603.aspx . If the link doesn't post, it is from holmquisthazelnuts dot com. Bob's Red Mill also makes hazelnut flour and that brand is available in most healthfood stores and regular grocery stores around me. It can also be ordered online at http://www.bobsredmill.com/hazelnut-flour-meal.html or on a m a z o n dot com. (The page wouldn't let that name post at all.)

I have tried making my own in my Magic Bullet, but I can never get the consistency correct. When I try to grind it finely, I have ended up making nice hazelnut butter or almond butter or sunflower butter or whatever I am trying to grind into flour. I am better off saving up money to order it "professionally" ground up. lol.

BRM's almond meal is next to impossible to bake with. So, if you want to bake with it, I would suggest trying to get it finer than that.

Interestingly enough, as the previous poster mentioned, BRM has a hazelnut flour that appears to be non-blanched, and from the picture looks fine enough. Wish they would do that with their almond flour! :blink:

Oddly enough, I just went by Whole Food's and they have it now. It's $12.99. Pass.

I get Trader Joe's almond meal and bake biscuits with it all the time. Good. VERY affordable. Use other flours WITH it.

I buy mine at NutsOnline.com.

I get their Almond flour too.

They also have Cashew flour which I am going to try next.

They grind it very fine...lovely stuff.

Yeah, BRM + WF= expensive

I use TJ's ALL the time. $3.99/lb. Can't beat it, AND it still has the skins which I feel just adds even more nutritionally.

I grind nuts in a blender all the time, just by putting in a 1/4 to a 1/2 cup at a time. It's an Oster Classic, and it's saved me a fortune in making nut flours. I pulse it a few times on high, and then whir it steadily a bit longer, it makes a nut meal pretty fast. I hope I don't jinx Old Reliable by praising it.

I don't have any trouble baking with it, it depends on the recipe and what you are making. It works very well in or on an oiled cast iron pan. I started out with just almond meal and have branched out to almond meal mixed with other gluten free flours, I tend towards trying to recreate a whole wheatish experience. ;)

I've made a lot of microwave breads with 1/2 almond and 1/4 sorghum 1/4 amaranth, with lemon juice and peel and poppyseeds or orange juice and peel and anise seed and honey. One egg and no gums.

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
