Anyone out there tried making almond milk yet with any great success?
I’ve been swooning over it myself these days (and so has the teenager!) and have looked forward to coming up with new ways to use up the pulp (I’ve now finished the last batch of ice cream).
Here is the latest go with a use for almond pulp, and my, its yummy! No need for anything other than the ingredients, a bowl, your clean hands, and a good song!
Less waste, less sugar, less sweetened, baked treats. Less packaging from making almond milk. Less cooking means less energy, and less appliances means less time spent on clean up Less wondering what to do with this superfood stuff!
More seriously potent fiber from hemp hearts and cocoa nibs. Lots of good energy, protein, and yummy healthy fats too. More dancing if you make them like we make them (we dance a lot).
Superfood Coconut Energy Cookies:
- almond pulp from one recipe Mindful Almond Milk (about 3/4 cup)
- (2) cups shredded unsweetened coconut (you can roast a small portion of you like)
- (3) tbsp almond or any nut butter
- (1/2) cup hemp hearts
- (2) tbsp maple syrup
- (1) cup quick oats
- (1/4-1/2) cup cocoa nibs (you can also sub in teeny tiny chocolate chips or a roasted ground nuts)
It’s simple really..
Mix all together with your hands – form into little cookie shapes no bigger than two inches in diameter. Feel free to play with amounts until you reach a firm texture that will mold and hold shape well.
Voila! Keep in the fridge – I took these into work and they totally vanished (if you want any maybe don’t do that)…these little treats are two bit perfection as a little snack or a treat – you could even snag them for a quick breakfast.
You can dance anywhere, even if only in your heart.
