Almond Pulp Recipes

Updated on March 12, 2020

Do you hate throwing away the pulp left over from making almond milk? So do I! I make at least one batch of almond milk a week, using expensive organic nuts. I can't bear to throw out the nutritious (and pricey) leftovers. This leaves me with a fair amount of pulp to use up. Here are some recipes that I have come up with.

Almond Pulp Cookies

These yummy cookies are only as sweet as you want to make them and are grain and gluten free. For a dairy free cookie, substitute coconut oil for butter.

Approximately 1 cup almond pulp
2 eggs, beaten
Sugar or other sweetener to taste (at least 3 tbsp)
3 tbsp butter, very soft or melted
Orange zest to taste (approximately 2 tsp)
Cinnamon to taste
Nutmeg to taste
A few pinches of salt
Dates, roughly chopped
Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Mix all ingredients except dates and powdered sugar.

Form cookies from approximately 1 heaping tablespoon of dough. Form into balls then press gently to flatten into small, 1/2-inch-thick discs. Use fingers to shape the edges. Gently press a piece of date into the center of each cookie.

Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until cookies are slightly brown and chewy. Cool on the cookie sheet. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.

Almond, Brown Rice and Asparagus Casserole

This cheesy, comforting dish is great on a rainy evening. It is also a gluten free recipe.

3 cups cooked brown rice
1 cup almond pulp
1 bunch asparagus, cut in bite-sized pieces, slightly steamed or blanched
2 cups sliced mushrooms, cooked in butter
1 cup shredded cheese
4 tbsp melted butter
Thyme or Herbes d'Provence to taste
Salt & pepper to taste
Enough chicken broth to moisten
Grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Butter a large casserole dish. Mix all ingredients except the Parmesan cheese. The mix should be moist but not swimming in broth. Place mix in casserole dish. Sprinkle generously with Parmesan. Cover. Bake approximately 35 minutes.

Almond Pulp Hot Cereal

1/2 cup steel-cut oats or other porridge
Pinch of salt
Milk, almond milk or water
1 cup almond pulp
Cinnamon and/or nutmeg to taste
Honey to taste
Raisins or minced dates, optional

Cook oats or other hot cereal in milk according to package directions. Add almond pulp and optional raisins or dates about 15 minutes before cereal is cooked through. Add enough milk to achieve desired consistency, and continue cooking through. Toward the end of cooking time, add spices. Remove from heat and add honey to taste.

In addition to these recipes, I like to add almond pulp to muffins, waffles, and other baked goods for extra flavor and protein. Please leave a comment telling us your favorite use for almond or other nut pulp.

      I use one cup of almonds per batch. I pour off the soaking water then fill the blender with fresh water--about 6 cups. I am left with maybe 4 to 5 cups of almond milk. I usually buy them in bulk at my local food co-op. I don't have the fridge or freezer storage space for buying large amounts (raw almonds go rancid quickly), so I'm forced to pay the going price. If your community has an informal co-op--just a group of people, not a brick-and-mortar store--you might consider joining so you can buy at wholesale prices. Often others will share the shipment with you so you aren't stuck with an unmanageable amount.

      I was wondering how many almonds you need to make how much milk? They are pretty pricey at the stores. Do you know of anywhere to simply buy them in bulk? Thanks. Great article.

      Hi Natalia,

      No, I do not dry the pulp for these recipes. However, if you wanted to dry it then grind it to a flour-like consistency, you could make some delicious European or Middle Eastern almond flour cookies or possibly baklava. Yum.

      Hi Emily,

      Do you dry the almond pulp before using it for the cookies recipe?

      I bought my nut milk bag at - - which linked to this page for using the almond pulp left over.

      Great bag - really well constructed, easy to clean - fit around the top of my Vita Mixer so that pouring the almond milk I made into another container was a snap... no muss no fuss!
