The last recipe I posted was my homemade Oat Milk and inevitably when you make most non-dairy milks you end up with some pulp leftover after straining.
I hate to waste anything so wanted to come up with a recipe that used the leftover pulp from my homemade non-dairy milk.
Most recipes that use leftover almond pulp or oat pulp, call for you to dry the pulp in the oven on a low setting first then blend it into a fine powder before adding it to your recipe. I can't be bothered with all that so wanted to come up with something that I could use the wet pulp in just as it is right after the milk has been made.
That is how my Almond Pulp or Oat Pulp Chocolate Chip Cookies came into creation.
So, before you make these cookies you need to make some Oat Milk , almond milk, or other nut milk that will produce some pulp.
My Oat Milk is super easy and takes less than twenty minutes to make from start to finish and the pulp will keep covered in the fridge for a few days if you don't want to bake the cookies right away.

FOR INGREDIENTS & FULL INSTRUCTIONS PLEASE SEE THE RECIPE CARD AT THE END OF THIS POST
These cookies are incredibly easy to make. Here's how:
Have some pulp ready after making your own homemade non-dairy milk.
Mix all the dry ingredients together
Mix all the wet ingredients, including the almond pulp together.
Let the cookie dough firm up in the fridge then scoop the dough out and onto a cookie sheet.
I love my USA Pan Cookie Sheet. It heats evenly and nothing ever sticks, plus they have a lifetime guarantee and are reasonably priced.
Bake and enjoy!
I love that when you make this recipe you get yourself some lovely fresh homemade non-dairy milk as well as a pile of delicious Almond Pulp or Oat Pulp Chocolate Chip Cookies . How perfect is that?
