So recently I started making my own almond milk. I love a good almond milk, but even after the first batch, I was faced with the sad remains of the leftover almond pulp. And if you ever made your own almond milk, I am sure you know what I am talking about. And if you have never made almond milk before, you should because it is delicious!

Now, I am not one to be wasting food or throwing away leftovers that could be re-used in a fun way.

When you make almond milk at home you are usually left with an amount of strained out almond pulp that feels dry and unusable…. But do not discard it, it would be a shame! There are plenty of ways to use leftover almond pulp, like these cute No-Bake Vegan Almond Pulp Energy Bites!

These bites are fun & easy to make, and make a great natural pick-me-up in the morning or afternoon! They can be made in just about 10 minutes using your food processor, and require no baking at all! Just plop the ingredients in your food processor, blend together, shape little walnut-sized balls and roll them into a topping of your choice.

These Almond Pulp Energy Bites are vegan and gluten-free and will keep in an air-tight container in your fridge for up to a week. But you’ll probably eat them all up long before that!
