Favorite Vegan Almond Pulp Cookies

Another amazing discovery on the almond pulp repurposing front! All the homemade almond milk this house drinks results in quite a bit of excess almond pulp. We made excellent use of it in the vegan strawberry cheesecake crust and I keep finding more places for it that don’t require time drying out in the oven! This has been a big week folx 😀 These (healthy!) cookies have something for everyone – they’re vegan, gluten-free, low sugar, and low impact. Just about every ingredient is from the bulk section and in our efforts for a cyclical kitchen we can eat these cookies guilt-free! At least I am. Let’s be real I’ve been eating these for about two days straight and still don’t feel bad about it.

Honestly, I feel pretty dang efficient when I can find multiple uses for new-to-me ingredients. It feels like I’m building up a solid repertoire of cooking knowledge – an awesome platform to keep create sustainable meals. I think your kitchen space should be flexible and empower you to use the things you have on hand. You can do so much with just a few things in the fridge! This helps with a “use-it-up” mentality that helps prevent food waste. Hopefully sooner I’ll be able to do a monthly recipe round up where you can peruse 10 different ways to use your leftover nut pulp! I hope you’re equally excited about this.
