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.

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
