Any use for the ground almonds that I strain from my almond milk?

Oh yes. This has been discussed oodles of times. Dehydrate it, then grind it and use it as "flour" for cookies, breads, cakes, etc.
If you do a search, you'll see ;)

Yes, great with ground cashews, agave and goodies to make cookies in the dehydrator.

i used raw honey instead of agave & didn't add in cayenne pepper. they are so good and no dehydrator is needed!
Just in time for the holidays, this cinnamon roll recipe satisfies the sweet tooth and the desire to continue a tradition.
My family always eats traditional cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning. Since I am the only one who eats raw, the rest of them will continue to indulge with their usual breakfast treat this year. But, I don't have to miss out with this tasty solution.
And, it doesn't have to be reserved for a special occasion. I have them for breakfast frequently, eating two of them with a side of fresh fruit. They also make a great snack or dessert.
1¼ cup almond meal
1¼ cup ground flaxseed
1 dash cayenne pepper
1½ tablespoon cinnamon
1 pinch sea salt
1 cup soft pitted dates
¼ cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
.125 cup olive oil
.125 cup agave nectar
¼ cup raisins, plus a little extra
¼ cup chopped nuts
Combine the almond meal, ground flaxseed, dash of cayenne pepper, 1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon and pinch sea salt in a bowl and set aside.
In a food processor or blender, process dates, water and vanilla into a paste. Remove half of the date paste and add it to the dry ingredients, along with the olive oil and agave. Mix these ingredients with your hands until it forms a dough. You may need to add a little water and/or agave if it is too dry, but be careful not to add too much.
Spread the dough out on a piece of parchment paper, and flatten/shape it into a 1/4-inch thick square.
Add 1/4 cup raisins and 1 Tbsp. of cinnamon to the rest of the date paste left in your food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Then, spread a thin layer of the paste onto the dough square, making sure to cover the whole surface, and top with a sprinkle of extra raisins and the chopped walnuts.
Using the parchment paper to help hold everything together, carefully/tightly roll the square into a log. Chill in the refrigerator, and then slice into about 1-inch thick rounds. I usually make about 8 cinnamon rolls out of this recipe.
These cinnamon rolls can be eaten right out of the refrigerator or warmed on a dehydrator. I top mine with a generous icing of raw almond butter mixed with agave, vanilla and sea salt (or if I have more time, I make a cashew and coconut whipped cream icing, as seen in the photo). Yum-O!

I've been making these almond coconut cookies they are fantastic.
I modded the recipe with less sweeteners and they're still plenty sweet to me:
1cup fresh almond pulp (I didn't measure it but it's a bit over 1cup almonds before making the milk)
1cup shredded coconut
1Tlbsp coconut oil
1/3cup agave (their recipe called for a whole cup)
1/2cup medjool dates (their recipe called for a whole cup)
pinch of salt
a little water maybe 1/6 cup
process it all together in the food processor, then form into cookies and dehydrate for maybe 12-15 hours at 110, or more or less to taste.
