Almond Pulp Cookies

For anyone that makes their own almond milk, you know that there is a bunch of almond pulp left over from the process:

That stuff is too good to throw out! There are so many possibilities on what to do with it (I want to hear your ideas!). With yesterday's batch, I made some Almond Pulp Cookies! I just threw some stuff together that I had around the house and they came out pretty tasty.

Almond Pulp Cookies

  • 1 cup almond pulp
  • 1 heaping tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup dried berries or raisins
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter

    Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl (duh?)
    ...I used my hands since the dough is a bit crumbly...
    Place small flattened balls of dough on a baking sheet
    Bake for 40 minutes at 225 degrees
    After cooling, roll the tops of the cookies in powdered sugar
    (if you desire)

    Next time, I'll try using maple syrup instead of agave nectar. I feel that almond and maple flavors are made to go together!
