Full Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh leftover almond milk pulp (from Homemade Vanilla Almond Milk (you will never buy store-bought again) recipe)
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup walnuts

*NOTES

  1. To make this recipe vegan, replace the eggs with chia or flax eggs and the chocolate chips with vegan chipits.
  2. Don’t have almond milk pulp? No problem! Add 2 cups almond flour + 2/3 cup almond milk instead.
  3. If using almond milk pulp that has been kept in the fridge, add 1/2 cup almond milk to it, since it will dry out in the fridge.
