Almond pulp magic

I absolutely hate food waste – since I regularly prepare my own almond milk, I end up with a lot of “almond pulp” (residues)! As it’s filled with nutrients and add a great texture to cakes, I decided to use it as a main ingredient to make cookies! It turned out soft, spongy, light and oh-so flavorful especially with homemade caramel! 😻



2 cups almond pulp

1/2 cup dried shredded coconut

1/3 cup maple syrup

2 tsp vanilla

1 tbsp cacao powder

1 pinch sea salt


1. Combine all ingredients together except cacao powder then divide into 2 bowls.

2. Add to one of the bowls 1 tbsp cacao and combine well (best to use your hands!). You will have 2 batch of cookies – chocolate and vanilla!

3. Form both mixtures into little cookies and place in the dehydrator for up to 5 hours at a light temperature (~105’F). If you like it crispier you can leave it longer



1 cup pitted dates

2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

Warm water


1. Soak dates in warm water to soften making sure the water fully covers the dates.

2. Blend the dates with coconut oil and 3/4 of the dates soaking water.

3. Refrigerate (it lasts up to 5 days)
