Vegan & Gluten-Free Cookies – Made from Leftover Almond Milk Pulp

My previous post was a step-by-step guide on how to make almond milk, so I created a delicious vegan gluten-free cookie recipe made from all the leftover almond pulp. These cookies are a bit crumbly but great if you want a healthy alternative to your regular homemade or store bought cookies. Hopefully this recipe will inspire you to make your own nut milk!

I added a combination of cocoa, dates and coconut flakes along with a splash of almond milk. After they’re finished baking, sprinkle some powdered sugar on top. Enjoy these healthy cookies with your friends over the holiday season.

This is what the leftover almond milk pulp should look like. I had about 2 cups.

Chop and mash dates into a paste. I used my mortar and pestle and added a splash of water for ease.

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Roll cookie batter into balls. Press and criss cross cookie balls with a fork. Bake for about 30 minutes.

When finished baking, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
