Are you wondering what to do with that leftover almond pulp after making homemade almond milk? Look no further. Use every last bit of the nutrient-dense fiber that comes from the crushed almonds to make these delicious cookies.

They are gluten-free, paleo, dairy-free, grain-free and refined sugar-free!

If you make your own nut milk, you need this recipe! I never knew what to do with my leftover “pulp” that comes from making my own dairy-free milk. This recipe uses the pulp as the base for these delicious cookies. 

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is almond pulp?

When you make your own nut milk, it involves soaking almonds and then putting them in a high-speed blender until it’s completely ground up and turns into milk. Then you squeeze the almond milk through a nut milk bag that allows all the milk to pass and leaves the “pulp” (ground up almonds) in the bag. This is the almond pulp. 

Can I substitute almond pulp for almond flour or another flour?

I would not suggest doing this because the texture and consistency of almond pulp is very different than flour. It is a lot moister and substituting with something else would make these cookies very dry. 

Can I substitute almond milk pulp for another nut milk pulp?

Yes! Almonds have more of a neutral flavor in baking so they work well for a classic chocolate chip cookie here. But cashew, pecan, macadamia, or walnut milk pulp I believe would all work. Let me know in the comments below if you use a different nut pulp and how it turns out!

    Hi! Great question. I think that would be completely fine. As long as it says on the monk fruit package “1:1 sugar substitute” it should work. Let me know how it turns out for you! 🙂
