The recent enigma of my blog life has been ‘what do I do with all of this almond pulp?’. I’ve tried it in everything from baked goods to ice cream to truffles,….all to no avail. I find it produces a ‘fluffy’ consistency that I really don’t care for, so I usually end up tossing it (gasp!) or dehydrating it in the oven and using it in place of almond meal/flour in recipes…but I recently had an epiphany….

Paleo GranolaAs the pulp dries in the oven, it gets a bit clumpy, which led me to think of granola! Add in a handful of pistachios, some sesame seeds, honey, and coconut oil, and watch it all come together to create a tasty mix that makes a wonderful alternative to its oat-laden counterpart….

This is highly adaptable to individual tastes, as you can add whatever nuts, seeds, and dried fruits you desire. It can also be made sugar-free by replacing the traditional honey with this Apple Honey!  Eaten with some coconut cream or milk or even by itself, this makes a delicious and satisfying breakfast or snack!

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Place the almond pulp on a non-stick cookie sheet and into the oven for 15-20 minutes to dry out.
  3. Increase the oven temperature to 325 degrees.
  4. Mix the cooled pulp with the pistachios, seeds, coconut, salt, and cinnamon.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the melted coconut oil with the honey and vanilla.
  6. Mix everything together (the ingredients should be slightly wet...not dripping and not too dry)
  7. Pour everything back onto the cookie sheet and place into the oven.
  8. Let bake for 15 minutes.
  9. Remove and stir.
  10. Replace the pan and bake for 15-20 more minutes until lightly browned, stirring every 5 minutes.
  11. Remove and allow to cool (it will crisp up more while cooling).
  12. Stir in the dried fruit and enjoy!

  1. Finally a granola I can eat, and a use for that leftover pulp! I used pecans, and subbed homemade “truvia” for the honey to make it lower carb. I added in a bit of water to adjust the moisture since I wasn’t using honey. It made beautiful clumps and had a nice crunch. Super yummy!

  2. Just made this granola this morning–OMG–this is fantastic!! I was wondering what a typical serving size would be…

    Making almond milk and using the almond pulp was SO EASY!! I don’t think I will ever purchase almond milk ever again. The milk makes fabulous coffee creamer too.

      1. Soooooooo… How do I get almond pulp, please??
        :-)
        Really trying to help my dad
        :-/
        I’m proud of him for even considering trying it (anything ‘new’ food-wise) as he is almost (literally) ‘new- food-phobic’… He even saw a psychologist about his food issues years ago with no good results!

          1. THANK YOU! I will try it, and let you know!
            I’ll also ask the folks at my box if any of them have any almond pulp extra, from making almond milk…

  3. Thanks for ur sweetest recipe! I’m a honey granola lover. It makes my breakfast fantastic. I had featured U in the article of Top 7 Beautiful Breakfast for Mothers on AllFreshRecipes. Looking forward to ur newly created recipes.

  4. Hi! I’m excited to try the granola! I’ve made crackers with almond pulp before but it took me an hour, so this recipe is nice and saves me time. I don’t have coconut oil. What does it do for the recipe and are there any substitutes? Thanks!

  5. I had a problem with this stuff not clumping together– it just turned into something looking like nuts mixed with “sand”. However, I did notice that when it came out of the over, I could clump it with my hands and it stayed together, so this is what I did: put a very large spoonful in the bottom of each my muffin tins, and then pressed down firmly using the bottom of a juice glass. It made little circular crunchy “granola” bar-disks! They are great and nice and crispy which is so hard to get with a paleo granola bar recipe! A perfect little snack, or you could break them up afterwards to get your clumpy granola.

  6. weird – it looks like it made only one serving. i must have done something wrong, as this is a lot of work for just one serving… yikes!

  7. Lauren – thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!! I made it and my kids LOVE it!!!!

    Would you be ok if I post this on my blog? Of course, I will link the actual recipe back to this site. I want more people to see this divine recipe – its awesome!!

    Thanks again

  8. I made this recipe this morning and I did not have almond pulp, so for a sub I added almonds in my ninja and blended it up. Skipped the first step of drying the almonds. Turned out delicious! I will definitely be making this weekly and trying it with different fruits/nuts. I am prego so sometimes it is hard to curb sweet cravings. This will be the perfect go to snack :)
