If you make your own nut milks, then you know what it’s like to have a fridge full of nut pulp! You know you should use it for something, but sometimes it sits there for a day or two while you think – what else can I do with almond pulp??
How about some delicious almond pulp cookies?
When I started making nut milks in earnest this summer, these cookies quickly became our go-to treat.
They are gluten-free, grain-free, refined-sugar free, and I even have a sugar-free variation. Best of all, they use wet nut pulp, so no need to dig out the dehydrator! They even met with approval from our resident chocolate-chip cookie connoisseur and family who are used to more traditional baked goods.
The original recipe can be found here, although the baking information seems to have gone missing. Now that I am restricted to a sugar-free diet for the next bit, I also felt compelled to create a Stevia-sweetened variation.
Feel free to swap out the chocolate chips for raisins, chopped dates, or other dried fruit.
Coconut Chocolate Chip Almond Pulp Cookies
- 1 cup almond pulp (no need to dehydrate! I use it right out of the refrigerator.)
- ½ cup maple syrup
- ½ cup chocolate chips (or dried fruit)
- ¾ cup coconut
- pinch sea salt
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together all ingredients. Use hands to form cookies. Bake on parchment-paper or a non-stick mat on a cookie sheet for 20 – 25 minutes, or until they are slightly brown on the bottom and they hold their shape. Makes about 9 cookies.
Coconut Raisin Almond Pulp Cookies with Stevia
- 1 cup almond pulp
- 10 drops liquid stevia
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ½ cup raisins
- ¾ cup coconut
- ¼ cup almond butter.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Use your hands to form cookies. Bake on parchment-paper or a non-stick mat on a cookie sheet for 18 minutes, or until they are slightly brown on the bottom and they hold their shape. Makes about 9 cookies. These are, admittedly, not as good as the maple-syrup version. But for a sugar-free cookie, they are pretty good, especially when still warm!
