We recently purchased an Almond Cow milk machine and I’ve had a lot of leftover nut and seed pulp remaining. In an effort to reduce food waste, and to save money on products we are already using, think double purpose, I used the pulp in a granola recipe that turned out quite tasty! I think you can easily use whatever nut or seed pulp you have on hand and customize your granola to what you love!
Cashew Oat Pulp Granola
- 1 baking sheet
- 1 oven
- 1 large mixing bowl
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 3/4 cup nut and seed pulp (I used cashew oat)
- 1/2 cup sweetener (maple syrup/coconut sugar)
- 1 cup large coconut flakes loosely packed
- 1/3 cup olive, coconut, walnut or avocado oil
- 1/3 cup pepitas or sunflower seeds
- 2 tbl hemp hearts
- 2 tbl chia seeds
- 1 tbl ground cinnamon
- 1 tbl vanilla extract
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
- Line your baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.
- Mix all of your ingredients into a large bowl thoroughly.
- Gently scoop out the granola and place on your baking sheet.
- I like to press the granola down firmly.
- Bake for about 60 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Once the granola is golden, remove from the oven and allow to fully cool. It will firm up once cooled. Store in an airtight container.
