Where To Buy Almond Flour In Malaysia

In my quest to make my own low-carb pancakes, bread and cakes, I have to use Almond Flour.  I went everywhere in search of it.  It is really not easy to be on low-carb when you are staying in Malaysia.  Well, staying in Kuala Lumpur is a lil bit easier compared to other cities here because we have access to some supermarkets that offer a better range of sugar-free food items like jam, syrups, etc.

So, back to Almond Flour for low-carb bakes. I saw Bob Red Mill’s Almond Flour at Jaya Grocer and they cost a freaking rm60 for a bag of maybe 500 grams.  Insane right?  Well, I did not give up and went everywhere to find it.

Guess what?  I finally found it at Bake With Yen.  There is a Bake With Yen outlet in my neighbourhood so I popped over to have a look.  When I saw them on the shelves, I was in Almond Heaven.

A bag of Almond Flour for RM20 which is about US$5 for a bag of 500 gm.  Not cheap but at least I can get them here.

  1. OMG!

    Thank God for this blog! I’ve been on Keto for 2 weeks now and have been frantically searching everywhere for almond flour. I’ve been craving tacos but almost all the flour from groceries near where I live are a no-no! So, muchas gracias! :)
    Maybe you’d consider posting more like this? Like where to buy ingredients for Keto-safe food and such? 😀

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog :) It’s so hard to go on keto here right? Been trying my hands to bake using almond flour and coconut flour. Do visit my other pages for the recipes on some keto food. Will be posting more ingredients and where to buy them soon:D Happy Keto-ing 😀

  2. Hey! Thanks! been trying to find almond flour. thank you for the info. I’m trying my hand at keto diet but as you said here it is difficult esp to find the ingredients.

    1. Hi there. Thanks for visiting my blog. It gets easier to find ingredients now 😁 I have been on keto for 6 months now and have lost a considerable amount of weight.

      Do let me know if you need any help on the food or etc. I’ll be glad to share what I know😊

    1. Hi, It’s not a silly question because I have asked the same thing. I googled and found out that they are both the same. When you buy almond powder or flour, do make sure that they are not the Chinese Almond which is used to make drinks. Make sure the flour/powder come from the brown almonds that we usually can buy to snack on :)

  3. Hi, been in keto for 2 weeks but found that really hard to get some stuff. Would like to seek for your advise where to get cheaper erythritol (powdered) for baking goods. Thanks 🙏

    Hi Cindy, thanks for your comment and for visiting my blog. So far I haven’t seen Erythirol on sale here in Malaysia. You can order online from iherb.com but shipping is rather high. If you can share the cost with others, then it’s worth it.

    Otherwise you can use Lankato sweetener (loh hon kor) for baking. It is available in Carings Pharmacy. I am in a keto group on Facebook and I have seen members using it for baking. Do feel free to ask me any questions :)

  4. wow !! You are a lifesaver. I have just started keto and my husband’s birthday is around the corner. I was desperately looking for some way in which I could get my hands on almond flour! Just another question – any idea where I can get Stevia and Erithritol? IHerb has both but it also has almost 40 RM delivery charge !

    1. Hi. You can get Stevia from organic shops or Ben’s Grocer in Publika. Another type of sweetener to try is Lakanto from monk fruit. Available at Carings Pharmacy. Can’t find Eriythirol here though.

  5. Hello…I just started low carb weeks ago ,still newbie but would like to bake some low carb or keto snacks..,.living in Ipoh that have a branch of Bake with Yen….I also bought a small packet of almond powder like the 1 you posted …just a question…is “almond fine flour” same texture with the powder we bought from bake with yen?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi,

      Thank you for your question. The almond flour that I have been buying from Bake with Yen is the same type as mentioned in all the recipes. I asked the staff and they told me the powder is from the almond nuts that they also sell. Just a word of advice. According to the sifus, it is better to avoid baking any breads/cakes for the first few months when you start keto :)

      1. Thank you very much…currently still on “clean” food progress…just wondering may be doing small pieces of pancake using coconut flour eating with butter…
