Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool down a bit; until it is warm to touch. You should comfortably be able to touch it for 10 seconds or more.
  • Add half of the almonds to your blender or how much ever almonds will fill your blender halfway. Pulse it a few times until you get a coarse almond meal / flour.
  • Now, blend on medium speed scraping the sides often. It will turn it into a paste like consistency. You can notice some oil separation happening.
  • Keep on blending until the paste turns into liquid texture.
