Toast the All-Purpose Flour (2 1/3 cups), Almond Meal (1 cup), and the Almonds (1/2 cup) separately. You can do it either in a pan or in the oven. In a pan toast on medium heat, the flour will get darker but not too much, and the almonds will get slightly more yellow or golden. To toast it in the oven spread it in a tray with baking parchment paper and bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
