Gluten Free Almond Oat Orange Cookie Recipe

The very basic “no-waste” recipe; cookies made with leftover almond pulps from making almond milk. This is actually a pretty old recipe but it hasn’t been on the website for some reasons, well, due to my messy schedule, I should say.

I like using pulps better than store-bought almond flour for this homey cookies. You can dehydrate nut pulp to store for later use, but for me, it’s just an extra task. Right after making almond milk (and the kitchen is already messy enough), add all the ingredients into the same bowl. Simple and less dish wash is the big plus!

What I meant by “homey” is the rough texture you get from the pulps. This means that the amount of wet ingredients need to be adjusted if using store bought finely milled almond flour. The leftover pulps are moist yet at the same time doesn’t observe liquid much compared to dry flour. The recipe below is based on the leftover pulps.
