Skeletons in the closet? How about in the freezer?

I currently have about 20 cups of frozen almond pulp in my freezer. Hey, I make a lot of almond milk! The other day I decided to spring clean my freezer and put some of that pulp to good use. What I came up with were these delicious brownie cookies. They vaguely remind me of the Two Bite Brownies from Whole Foods, but oh so much better for you. They are fully approved by my resident Cookie Monster, who devoured about five of them the other night!

 Brownie Cookies

  • 1 cup almond pulp (leftover from making almond milk)
  • 1 T ground flax
  • 3 T water
  • 2 T coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened  cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp liquid stevia
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Combine flax and water in a small bowl. Set aside in fridge for five minutes to gel. This will be your "flax egg."
  3. Combine all ingredients in a bowl until a sticky dough is formed
  4. Drop dough by the tablespoon onto a lined baking sheet
  5. Bake for 10 minutes rotating the pan halfway through

Allow to cool throughly before eating. These keep best in the fridge!
