So, I made these the other day for friends and family – basically, it’s one of those “I can’t tell it’s gluten free” recipes. It’s yet another great use for almond pulp – the byproduct of the Make Your Own Almond Milk recipe. You can substitute almond flour as well, but almond pulp is my go-to in this recipe. Almond milk is simple to make and the only ingredients are almonds, water and a little salt – no additives or preservatives, plus you get to make awesome stuff like this from the left over pulp.
Need to be dairy free as well? Use Nutritional Yeast in place of the cheese. Continue Reading
