5 Reasons To Make These Almond Pulp Energy Bites:

  • They require just 5, wholesome ingredients: almond pulp, coconut flour, almond butter, Kosher salt and freeze dried raspberries
  • You can freeze them for later. Keep them frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months and defrost as needed.
  • They take about 5 minutes to make
  • They taste just like PB+J….but they’re paleo!

How Is Almond Pulp Different From Almond Meal?

I came up with this recipe when I was learning how to use the raw almond pulp that’s leftover from making almond milk. The ground-up, “milked” almonds are still saturated with liquid and relatively course, not dry and finely ground like store-bought almond meal.

If you don’t have any almond pulp lying around and want to make energy balls, I suggest trying my Oatmeal Peanut Butter Balls instead. 

Variations

This recipe uses freeze dried raspberries, which you can find at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods in the same section as the trail mix and dried fruits. If you can’t find them, try using freeze dried strawberries or unsweetened dried cherries instead. 

Whatever you use, just make sure it’s unsweetened. The whole point of this recipe is to satisfy your sweet tooth without any refined sugar.
