I do prefer using the Honeyville Farms Blanched Almond Meal Flour recommended by Elana's Pantry for baked goods. However, in a pinch and for some recipes it works well to grind your own. Because the skin is left on, the resulting flour is more fibrous and has a darker color. It is also a bit more coarse then Honeyville's.
When I don't specifically need the finely ground (read: more expensive and harder to get) I like to grind my own. One of the recipes I use that I think works great with my own ground almond flour is Chicken Nuggets.
I use the flat blade that comes with the Magic Bullet and the small cup. Place 1/2 cup of almonds into the small blender cup, and attach the flat blade. Blend for a few seconds. Sometimes an almond will get stuck under the blade so you may have to remove the bottom and get that almond unstuck. After successful blending, remove the blender cup and shake to evenly distribute the almonds. Sometimes the bigger chunks get stuck at the bottom.
