Chocolate Almond Dream Cookies: What to do with your left-over almond pulp
Okay, so we all know how amazing it is to make your own almond milk, and how amazing it tastes - but what about the left over almond pulp after you're done all the milking.... Well, heres one fabulous idea!!
It is seriously so simple and they always taste amazing - even the cookie dough is delicious to eat.
Vanilla Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 375. Cooking time: 15-20 minutes
1 1/2 cup almond meal
3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 tbsp vanilla
1 flax egg - (1 tbsp ground flax into 2.5 tbsp water/almond milk)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup chocolate chips - I use camino 71% dark choc. chips
Blend almond meal, flax egg, dates, coconut oil, and vanilla together in high speed blender. I have to use my tamper while using my vitamix because mixture is quite thick. If you have a food processor that may work too!
Once dates are blended into mixture, scoop back into the bowl to combine with other ingredients. This dough is quite moist, don't worry it bakes lovely! - & tastes amazing.
Roll cookies with your hands and spread onto a lined baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes depending how you love your cookies. I suggest checking your cookies after 15 minutes, check if they are browning, for consistency, and decide if you want your cookies baked longer.
