It wasn’t until I started making my own almond milk that I realized I didn’t need to buy almond flour at the bulk food store. It’s quite easy to make your own, especially if you’re already making homemade almond milk! This recipe works to dry any kind of pulp from making nut milk: cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, etc. Go nuts! (Sorry, not sorry.)
Dehydrated nut pulp recipe
Nut pulp (pressed as dry as possible)
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. A pan with sides is much better for this purpose. Preheat the oven to 200°F/95°C.
Place the nut pulp on the parchment-lined baking sheet and spread out as much as possible so that it’s in a thin layer. Place in the oven and bake the pulp until fragrant and just starting to turn golden brown. Check on it every 10 minutes or so, to ensure it doesn’t burn. It will store for a few weeks in a cool, dry place. Use in your favourite recipe that calls for nut meal/flour, such as cookies, or even in your morning smoothie for added fibre and protein.
My favourite way to use up nut flours is to put them in cookies or crackers. What do you use your nut meals for?
