Just Almonds Review & Giveaway


Almonds are definitely my favorite nut. And now I've found a great place to buy them:


The name says it all...Just Almonds.  They sell almonds and almond flour...that's it!  BUT their website is filled with interesting tidbits about almonds.  It's an almond education for sure!

Here is some info from their site:
At Just Almonds Inc., we have perfected the buying process and now end-users can buy direct from the farm without having to know somebody in the business. 
Our family has been growing, processing, and handling wholesale almonds for nearly 30 years. We sell in quantities to meet everyone’s needs; from small 5 lbs boxes for samples and retail users, to largebulk wholesale almonds for large commercial users and international clients. 
Our ranch is located in the heart of the Central Valley of California, and our almonds ship straight from our ranch. We take great pride in offering the highest quality California almonds and the friendliest customer service. 

I was sent almonds and some almond flour.  These almonds are so crunchy and sweet.  I love them and so does my family.

Almond flour is a new adventure for me.  I never even new it existed so I wasn't sure what to make, so I googled, 'almond flour recipes' and came up with a chocolate chip cookie recipe.  Chocolate and almonds....YUM!

Here's the recipe I used from www.elanaspantry.com.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup grapeseed oil  (I used canola oil, but next time will use butter)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup agave nectar (I used honey)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Mix dry, mix wet, mix dry & wet together.  
Form 1 inch balls. 
Bake 350 degrees for 7 - 10 minutes

These cookies were very good.  Even my 90 year old aunt loved them.  She ate 3 of them.  She said they were tasty and easy to chew with her few teeth.  She added that with a little less oil I would have gotten an A+---she used to be a teacher.  

After I made these I noticed a recipe section at the Just Almond's site.  I think I'll try the pancakes next.
