When you are on a raw vegan diet, making your own almond milk is a frequent occurrence. What do you do with the leftover almond pulp after you make almond milk, though? Most people chuck it in the trash and never think about it again, but you can use this almond pulp in a variety of recipes, like these raw brownies.
- Prep Time: 10m
- Total Time: 10m
- 1/2 c raw cashews
- 1 c dates, pitted, and roughly chopped
- 1/2 c almond pulp (squeezed and dry to touch)
- 5 tbsp. raw cacao powder
- 4 tbsp. unsweetened dehydrated coconut flakes
- 2 tbsp. grade A pure maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- Add the cashes to a food processor and pulse until you get a small and crumbly mixture. Once you achieve this consistency, add the dates to the processor and continue blending.
- Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and blend until you get a chocolaty brown color. Do not process the mixture so much so that you get a buttery consistency.
- Spoon the mixture into a brownie dish or cake pan that is greased with a little coconut oil. You can also line it with parchment paper to prevent sticking. Spread the mixture around evenly and press it down into the pan.
- Place the brownie dish in the freezer for about an hour. You should always keep the fudge in the freezer, though.
- Remove it from the freezer when you are ready to eat it, cut yourself a piece, and enjoy!
