    Our Organic Ground Almond or Almond flour makes a great alternative to conventional flour when you need to make gluten free. Our raw ground Almonds all come from Spain, they have a delicious flavour and make an excellent ingredient for cakes, biscuits and desserts.

    Someone said Makro for 1KG bags if you know anyone with a Makro card

    Someone else said make your own

    You can also make your own by grinding up unroasted, unsalted, peeled almonds, in a coffee grinder. Works very well and is cheaper. Don't overgrind though or you'll get almond butter!

    All truth goes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Then, it is violently opposed. Finally, it is accepted as self-evident.

    I would have a go at making it, if you go beyond flour and end up with paste, it will still taste nice

    Amazon have coconut flour at 9:50

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Org-Pure-Coconut-Flour-GF/dp/B003VJQFTW/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1308888741&sr=8-3

    Or here at 9:50 with free delivery over 50

    Coconut Cake

    Ingredients

    6 eggs
    cup coconut oil
    cup coconut milk
    6 Tablespoons raw honey or other sweetener
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    teaspoon orange /lemon zest
    cup coconut flour
    teaspoon baking powder (aluminium free)
    teaspoon sea salt
    juice of medium orange or lemon or other

    Directions

    Take your eggs out of your refrigerator and allow them to come to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt coconut oil. Whisk the eggs, coconut milk, honey, vanilla and orange zest together.
    Combine coconut flour, baking powder and sea salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet. Pour coconut oil into batter and mix until all lumps are gone.
    Pour the batter into your greased pan and place on the middle rack of the oven. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until browned on top and a toothpick comes out clean. Place the cake on a cooling rack.
    After the cake has cooled a bit, but is still warm, poke holes all over the top with a fork. Juice the orange /lemon half right over the whole cake, making sure to evenly distribute the juice

    As to Almond Flour

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almond_meal

    Can I Make My Own Almond Flour?:Yes, you can make it in a blender or food processor, though care must be taken not to go too far, or you will have almond butter! Use fairly small amounts, and pulse until it's meal.

    The French call it Frangipane and the recipe here uses ground almonds
