These Almond Joy Energy Bites were made from almond pulp after I made almond milk using my Ellie’s Best Bigger Better Nut Milk Bag; a perfect kitchen companion for anyone trying to make more beverages and foods from scratch.
After getting my nut milk bag a few months ago, I realized that I’m going to really have to dig dip into my creativity, to find ways to use the pulp that remains from making fresh juices or nut milks; it’s a yummy adventure.
I wish I had chocolate to dip these babies in, so that it really seems like an almond joy candy, but, hemp seeds weren’t a bad replacement.
The almond pulp combined with shredded coconut and a few other ingredients created a decent texture with all the right flavors :p
