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!
