The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

If you make almond milk from scratch like I do, you know what it's like to have bags of almond pulp crowding your life.

When I've got too much almond pulp around and want to get rid of it, I make these little almond pulp cookies.  They are so easy it's ridiculous. The flavour reminds me of little vanilla wafers. They are very light.

These almond pulp cookies are very dry, very odd and very simple little snacks. In fact, they are so dry that you have to drink something with it or you feel like you might choke. Lol. However, I find them oddly nice and I make them often - probably because I am like, "OMG I have too much almond pulp in the fridge - I need to get rid of this stuff FAST!"

Basically, you just throw your almond pulp in a bowl, add the remaining ingredients, and then combine with your hands. Form into little cookies with your hands and dehydrate.

These look fantastic, but my dehydrator is still a month away from being delivered. Can I freeze my almond pulp from my juicer and use it later? I make almond milk in the angel juicer, saves on fuss with nut bags and I get a very dry pulp. Thank you.

Wanted to share this almond pulp recipe with you
Banana Cranberry Almond Pulp Cookies
If you make your own almond milk and don’t have a use for the almond pulp, you can make these to eat for a snack or for a breakfast meal. They are so good and healthy! They taste much like banana nut bread. I made up the recipe out of necessity to make use of the almond pulp to keep it from going to waste.
Ingredients:
1. One Cup of almond pulp
2. One Cup of whole wheat flour
3. One large or two small ripe bananas
4. One fourth cup of almond milk
5. Half cup of cranberries or raisins
6. Half cup of Splenda
7. One half tablespoon of baking powder
Mix all ingredients in order by hand and spoon onto cookie sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in a pre-heated 300 degree oven. Let cookies cool completely and store in a Ziploc bag.

hi to all
I've just joined this community today and have been having much fun with my new Escabibur! I recently became vegan raw after 25 years of vegetarianism..feeling great!!
I am interested to try these almond pulp cookies ( this stuff is taking over my apartment since I make fresh almond milk almost each morning for my green smoothie) however I thought that temperatures higher than 112-115 was no longer considered raw..this recipe says to bake on high for an hour b4 lowering temp to 105 ( my usual setting).. feedback?
thanx

Hi Martina,

Welcome to TRK!

I suggest this because the initial warmer temperature will help to take away a lot of the moisture at first, and the thinking is that it takes a while for your dehydrator to climb up to “high” and it also takes quite a while for the food to actually get to the temperature that the dehydrator air is at so it is still safe for raw foodists.

One of the best side-effects of setting your temperature higher at first is that it’s good at getting rid of the initial moisture quite quickly. Increasing the temperature at the beginning of cooking time is common practice in the raw food community. If you are not mindful about turning the heat back down after 1.5 hours, yes, your food will be heated above 105 degrees. However, this risk is warranted. That initial heat blast can really save you a lot of time and can accelerate the dehydrating process by quite a bit, even by 50% sometimes.

For me, I do strive to live a 100% raw lifestyle; however, I also make some slight tweaks to the “rules” in order to ensure that I can stay raw over the long-term.

Hope this helps!

Another great use for almond pulp is...for the birds!! If you have a wild bird rescue organization nearby, most would love to have it since they typically run on donations and volunteer work! I'm told it is wonderful for smaller birds who can't crack the shell of a large nut. I've been happily freezing and donating what I don't use in recipes for the last several months. It's very gratifying to know it's helping creatures in need. I plan on using some for the birds in our yard as soon as my hubby makes me that squirrel proof bird feeder!

Hey Laura-Jane,
Do you think if I added a little coconut oil, the cookies would come out a little less dry?

-
Vote down!

If you bake them, this works great. I use some of my almond pulp to make doggie biscuits and I use coconut oil in them. Then I bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. The cool thing is, while they come out crunchy and dry at first, if I let them sit on the counter for 2-3 days, they are soft. It is just the nature of the almond pulp. They absorb water from the air. The crackers I make in the dehydrator do not do this. They remain crunchy even weeks later. BTW, I have a NESCO dehydrator and I have no complaints. It is a beautiful thing. :)

Hey Casey, I know these are such weird little dry things, aren't they? Normally I would say don't add coconut oil to anything that needs to be dehydrated since oil will not dehydrate. However, these are definitely extremely dry so 1 tbsp coconut oil might be worth trying, although I have never tried it myself

About Homemade Almond milk going bad. I keep hearing about this problem but mine stays fresh and good for a week.
I refrigerate the almonds while they soak, and don't add sweetener until I pour the glass. I normally make a gallon of almond milk per batch.
Not sure if this is helpful.

I also soak my almonds in the fridge and never add any sweetener to the milk. Making almond milk from cold almonds means that the shake I'm going to make right after making the milk, will also be cold. If the fruit I'm using in the shake isn't sweet enough, I may add some agave but I never put any sweetener into the batch of milk. I soak 3 cups of raw almonds overnight (or longer) and use a mixture of 3/4 cup almonds to 3 cups of filtered water in the blender). This keeps in my fridge for 4 days without any spoilage... although because we use it every morning in shakes we never have any left over after 4 days!.

Hi,
Thanks for the recipe! I made my 1st almond milk today and it is good.
It is different that the store-bought rice milk I normally drink so I guess I need to get used to the flavour of it (like I did in the beginning with the rice milk) but it does taste good.
So now I am left with the pulp and I want to make this cookies, but I need to know more a less how long to dehydrate them, I wanted to leave them over night, but was wondering if that is too long?
Thanks!

I know this is not answering your question, but to help with taste, I add 1 tsp natural vanilla, 3 medjool dates, 1 tsp cinnamon and it helps a lot! (That's for a recipe using 7 cups of water) But yeah, it takes time to get use to and then it becomes irreplaceable! :)

Once you drink homemade, raw almond milk for a while, you'll never be able to go back to the store bought stuff! I buy it in a pinch sometimes, and always have to force myself to finish it (mainly because I'm cheap & hate throwing stuff away LOL). Plus homemade is SO much better for you :)

I just put these in the dehydrator (an excalibur I rescued from the trash, it had been caught in hurricane sandy but I cleaned it and put it back together, seems to work just fine!). I played with your recipe a bit though XD I added some raw cocoa to give it an "Almond Joy" flavor and substitued a banana for the syrup because I prefer the nutrition from the banana. I have no idea how its going to turn out, but the batter tastes good! I'm going to keep a close eye on it and I'll let you know how they come out =D

What do you consider "high" and then reduce to 110 degrees? My dehydrator is just degrees, and if we go over 118 it is no longer raw, so I imagine "high" is pretty hot. I've seen this in a few recipes.

Hi Heather, if you put on high (example, 130-145) for the first hour then the dehydrator will heat up faster but is unlikely to get as high as that if you turn it down after the first hour

@laura: you might want to try whole flaxseed that has been soaked overnight to add to this recipe to make a modified cookie. The gelatin flaxseed mix is wet and helps sticks things together. Soak about 1/2 cup overnight and then in small amounts mix the almond flour and flaxseed mix til you reach a good consistency and amount to reach the two cups. I haven't tried it, but just a thought :)
