View Full Version : Uses for Almond Pulp
07-29-2009, 04:33 AM
I have been making a lot of almond milk recently and have all this almond pulp left over. It seems like there must be a good use for it.
I tried to use if for a base for some fruit nut bars but the texture just wasn't something we liked. Maybe I could have used 1/2 nut pulp and 1/2 nuts?? Does anyone have any ideas about good uses for this pulp? It seems a waste to throw it in the composte pile.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.:)

hmmm... I don't seem to come up with much when I use the search button, but have seen many almond pulp use threads here.
I make almond milk, then if I can't use it immediately I'll freeze it.
I make 'bread crumbs' out of it (wet almond pulp, onion, celtic salt, sage, parsley, oregano, rosemary blended in the food processor and spread out in the dehydrator till totally dry), dry it for use in cookies (as a substitute for flour), put it in my crackers and breads a s a filler and make muesli 'crumbles' (blend almond pulp with dates, cinnamon, apple, oats if desired, and other things in food processor then dob onto telfex sheet and dry, mix with dried fruits, seeds, sprouted dehydrated buckwheat etc to make a kick arse muesli).
I also sometimes use it as a flour for making gourmet raw cakes, you don't have to dry it (I usually do though) to do this.
You could also put the wet pulp in the food processor with tomato, spring onion, herbs, and other veg and make a 'scramble' Ani Phyo style.

Thanks klomasius, I think maybe the key here is drying it?
I'll be trying some of your suggestions. They sound really good. Thanks for your imput.

Drying it is really good for storing it. I tend to keep a jar of it in the cupboard. There are many uses for wet pulp (say, if you don't have a dehydrator), you can just experiment with making stuff using the wet pulp. I'm sure you'll eventually come up with some fantastic creations! :D.

I too dry mine and then freeze it if I'm not going to use it quickly. There's also a recipe, actually probably a bunch of recipes here. I'll see if I can find the one particular one.
Ok. Just "bumped" the thread. Cinnamon-Pecan Rolls. They are REALLY good!

Thanks for the recipe. These sound really great, I think I will try some this afternoon. I'll use my dried almond pulp and let you know how they turn out.

Okay so I just took my pulp out of the dehydrator and it looks like granola. It doesn't even resemble almond flour. I had to put it through the grinder to get it into flour-like powder. Is this the way it does for the rest of you?
I did kind of think that a little raisin, dried fruit and nuts would have made this a good granola...?
Just still working on this.

^That's what I did with mine. It did look a little funny before grinding it up.
Definitely try the cinnamon rolls. I made my first batch yesterday & was SUPER pleased with the results!

Rawkinlocks posted a recipe for pecan cinnamin rolls that uses dried nut pulp for the dough

Thanks Mandy, I copied that one down. Will be trying it Monday. I have a big weekend planned so won't even be home till late Sunday.
I'm going to a Raw Food Revival cooking class in Nashville this weekend. I am really excited about it. It's closer to home and more affordable than a lot I have looked into. It's a Tex-Mex theme and I can't wait to get there.
...........but as soon as I get home it will be pecan cinnamon rolls for sure. They were one of my favorites..........mmmmmmmmmm.

Mamoo, I just try to spread it out so there aren't too many big wet chunks on the tray. When it comes out dry I just crumble it in my hands and it breaks into a fine meal. It also depends how fine your blender gets the meal too when you are making almond milk.
Making granola chunks is really easy with almond meal, I definitely recommend it!
