Nut Pulp Raisin Cookies

Have you ever made your own nut milk? I’ve shared my Homemade Almond Milk recipe and it is so easy to make. Honestly, I’ve rarely buy nut milk anymore since it is so simple to make it at home. The worst part of nut milk is figuring out what to do with the leftover pulp. If you are cheap like me, you don’t want those expensive almonds to go to waste. Well, I’ve been working on several recipes that use the pulp… like this one! It resembles an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie only it is grain free. I’ve included an ingredient substitution for the nut pulp if you don’t make your own milk. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies

Nut Pulp Raisin Cookies

1 cup nut pulp (almond, coconut flakes, etc) *see note below*
1 cup grain-free flour blend (or gluten-free flour blend)
1/2 cup palm shortening or butter
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
1/3 cup honey
1 egg
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 cup raisins

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together shortening or butter, vanilla, coconut sugar and honey until smooth. Add in egg until blended.
  • Add in pulp, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and cloves until mixture is slightly crumbly. Fold in raisins.
  • Using a cookie scoop, or tablespoon, scoop dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a pan liner. Flatten cookies with palm.
  • Bake at 375F for about 12-15 minutes or until slightly brown on edges. Let cool completely on a wire rack.

*If you don’t have any nut pulp to use, simply add about 3/4 cup of almond flour or other flour blend to the recipe.*
