Chocolate Nut Pulp Bites

Chocolate Nut Pulp Bites

One of the things I love about making almond milk is the nut pulp that’s leftover. It became a challenge for me to figure out how to use this byproduct. I created these “no bake” energy bites from researching a variety of recipes. They make quite a few, so feel free to freeze them! Oh, and they’re gluten free and dairy free.

Chocolate Nut Pulp Bites – GF/DF

Yield: 18 Servings

Chocolate Nut Pulp Bites - GF/DF

Ingredients

  • 2 cups coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • 1 tsp expresso powder
  • 4 TBS almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Almond milk pulp from 1 cup of almonds (the leftover pulp)
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Semi sweet chocolate
  • Salt flakes

Instructions

  1. Blend dry ingredients in a processor. Then add pulp & other wet ingredients. Process until it is crumbly. Empty into large bowl.
  2. Roll into balls and place in the refrigerator to firm up (for 30 minutes, or so).
  3. Melt chocolate and dip tops of the chilled balls in the chocolate. Place balls on tray lined with parchment paper. Top with salt flakes.
  4. Place in the refrigerator to set.

Notes

This recipe makes quite a few energy balls. I froze most of them in small baggies, so I could take out a few at a time.
