Almond Chocolate Chip Coconut Bars using leftover almond pulp

Lots of people seem to be searching for ways to use their almond pulp left over from making almond milk. My post about almond jam muffins using leftover almond pulp still gets the most hits on this blog!

I love those muffins, but there are only so many times I can make them and expect people to eat them! So I've been looking for new ways to use my leftover pulp. I recently bought a nut milk bag (very useful purchase) and I have been making lots of nut milk using this fabulous guide on Health Yeah

A lot of the recipes I've made with the pulp have tasted... well, kind of pulpy and bland. 

But these bars have a lot of flavour and are a great way to use leftover almond (or any other nut) pulp. I've found the key is to use a smaller amount of the pulp so it doesn't dominate. 

I used this recipe for almond pulp bars. I halved the recipe and only used half a cup of almond pulp. I used one of the new Mayver nut/seed spreads, which worked really well. 

These take a little while to firm up in the freezer. If you can't wait, you could probably just roll the mixture into balls.

If anyone has any recommendations for other ways to use up leftover pulp, I'd love to hear them!


  1. Sounds good to me. Sadly I don't make almond milk. However I imagine if I did I would use leftover almond pulp for burgers and nut roasts

    1. That's a good idea! I've only really tried to use the pulp in sweet things. Really want to try one of your nut roasts!

  2. I'm pretty hopeless at using up my leftover nut pulp - one of the reasons my own nut milk bag gets less use than I'd like! - so I am grateful to you for bonus ideas :) These look great.

    1. Thanks Kari hope you like them! I must admit that I end up throwing out half of my pulp but I keep searching for ways to use it ...
