  1. These sound delicious! I will have to try them. I’ve never purchased almond flour before, can I get that at a regular grocery store or should I try Whole Foods?

    • Whole Foods will definitely have it, maybe even in bulk. Trader Joe’s also has it (or had in the past, they are a little unpredictable). Some regular grocery stores might have it: Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal would be most common.

      You can also grind slivered or whole almonds by pulsing in a food processor. There is more good info on David Lebovitz’s blog: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2014/01/almond-flour-faqs-almond-meal/
