Almond Pulp Granola

After making homemade almond milk for the first time, I realized I would need something to do with all of the almond pulp leftover. At first I added it to my oatmeal and made cookies out of it (future blog post!). But I think my favorite thing to make with it (at least right now) is almond pulp granola. I eat it for breakfast with a mixture of half homemade coconut milk and half almond milk.

Almond Pulp Granola

    • 2/3 cup almond pulp
    • 1/4 cup slightly chopped pistacios
    • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut (or coconut pulp from making coconut milk)
    • 2 Tablespoons melted coconut oil
    • 3 Tablespoons honey
    • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/3 cup (or more) dried fruit - I use chopped unsulfured apricots, cherries, and sultanas (golden raisins)
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Place the almond pulp on a non-stick cookie sheet and into the oven for 15-20 minutes to dry out.
  3. Increase the oven temperature to 325 degrees.
  4. Mix the cooled pulp with the pistachios, seeds, coconut, and cinnamon.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the melted coconut oil with the honey and vanilla.
  6. Mix everything together (the ingredients should be slightly wet…not dripping and not too dry)
  7. Pour everything back onto the cookie sheet and place into the oven.
  8. Let bake for 15 minutes.
  9. Remove and stir.
  10. Replace the pan and bake for 15-20 more minutes until lightly browned, stirring every 5 minutes.
  11. Remove and allow to cool (it will crisp up more while cooling).
  12. Stir in the dried fruit and enjoy!
The Finished Product!
