What to do With Almond Milk Pulp
Last week I made some super simple alternative milk so this week I’m looking at ways to cut down on food waste and use the pulp to make food! A quick google search of what to do with nut milk pulp will most likely result in many recipes for almond protein bars – which I’m sure are great – but today I want to talk about a few more creative ways to use your pulp!
Basically, almond milk pulp is ground up almonds, which is what almond flour is. So if you dry out your pulp you can use it as a flour substitute in most recipes! Here’s what I made with mine!
Almond Chia Granola
All you need for this recipe is 1 part almond pulp to 2 parts rolled oats and then you pretty much add any other ingredients you want, here’s what I did:
2 cup Almond Pulp
4 cups Rolled Oats
4 tablespoons Coconut Oil
1 tablespoon (or more) Chia Seeds
1/2 cup Agave Nectar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
Other suggestions: cacao nibs, hemp hearts, chocolate chips, sliced almonds, etc.
Just mix everything together in a bowl and place it on a cookie sheet in the oven at 325 F for about 20-25 minutes.
Almond and oat bars
1 cup Almond Pulp
1 cup Rolled Oats
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/4 cup Agave Nectar
1/4 cup Ground Flaxseed
1/2 cup Smooth Almond Butter
1/2 cup (or more) Chocolate Chips
1 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
pinch of Salt
1.Preheat the oven to 350 F
2. First, mix the coconut oil, agave, and ground flaxseed. Let sit for a ten minutes. This step is very important as this mixture will act as the egg.
3. Mix together the almond pulp, oats, cinnamon, and salt.
4. Add the almond butter and vanilla to the ’egg,’ and whisk to combine.
5. Add wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir, fold in the chocolate chips.
6. Pour into a pan and bake for 25 - 30 minutes, let cool before serving.
