These crackers are an easy way to re-purpose the almond pulp leftover from making homemade almond milk.

I’m usually too impatient to dry the leftover almond pulp in an oven or dehydrator, so this recipe is as easy as it gets– there’s no added prep work involved! You can use the wet pulp immediately after making a batch of almond milk, or you can store it in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days, to make these crackers at your convenience. (I’ve even tried using frozen almond pulp! It works well, too, as long as it’s thawed completely before use.)

This recipe is completely adaptable, so feel free to use any ingredients you have on hand. I’ve made them with both olive oil and coconut oil, fresh herbs and dried herbs, and they turn out crisp and delicious every time!


Easy Almond Pulp Crackers (Vegan, Paleo)
Makes about 20 crackers

Adapted from Yum Universe

Ingredients:

1 scant cup wet almond pulp (the amount leftover from making 1 batch of almond milk)
3 tablespoons olive or coconut oil
1 tablespoon ground flax or chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
2 tablespoons fresh herbs, or 2 teaspoons dried herbs, such as chives, rosemary, or parsley
1 garlic clove, minced (optional)

Water, as needed

Note: Due to reader feedback, this recipe has been updated to add the ground flax and water, to help make a vegan “flax egg” for binding this dough together better. Other readers have reported using a real egg with success, if you’d prefer to try that and omit the water and ground flax seeds.

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond pulp, oil, ground flax or chia seeds, salt, herbs, and garlic, if using, and stir well. If the dough looks dry, add water one tablespoon at a time, just until it can easily be pressed together between your fingers. Transfer the mixture to a sheet of parchment paper and place another sheet of parchment paper on top. Use a rolling pin to roll the cracker mixture about 1/8-inch thick, or as thin as you’d like your crackers to be. (The thinner they are, the crispier they’ll be.)

making almond pulp crackers

Use a large knife to score the rolled dough into square shapes, making about 20 crackers. Poke the middle of each cracker with a fork to help them dry and bake evenly. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, then flip each cracker (they should separate easily where you scored them) and bake until they are crisp and golden, about 15 to 20 minutes more.

Cool the crackers completely before serving. They should keep well at room temperature for a few days, but they’ll last even longer in a sealed container in the fridge.

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond pulp, oil, ground flax or chia seeds, salt, herbs, and garlic, if using, and stir well. If the dough looks dry, add water one tablespoon at a time, just until it can easily be pressed together between your fingers.

Notes:

  • My favorite herb combination so far has been freshly minced garlic + chives, but fresh rosemary makes for a delicious cracker, too! Since this batter is completely vegan, you can taste before you bake, adding more salt or seasonings as you see fit.
  • I haven’t tried this recipe using other nut pulps yet, so please leave a comment below if you have success with substitutions. (Since some nuts like cashews, don’t leave much of a pulp when making milk, this recipe won’t necessarily work with every type of nut pulp. Experiment at your own risk!)

Enjoy!

Reader Feedback: What’s your favorite type of cracker? I’m going to try adding nutritional yeast next time, to try to make a vegan “Cheeze-it” with almond pulp. (I already have a vegan Cheeze-it cracker recipe using whole nuts, if you’d prefer to skip making the nut milk!)

  1. I just tried making these immediately after making a batch of almond milk and they didn’t hold together for me. I ended up with all crumbs. I love the idea, though. I think I may try adding an egg next time.

    1. I tried making these again tonight, adding an egg, and they held together! They turned out nice and crispy. Woohoo!

      1. Thanks for letting us know that the added egg works. It seems that this is one of my “trickier” recipes, (since I think the wet almond pulp can vary by individual), so I appreciate your feedback!

    1. Maybe? I’ve never tried it, since making a batch of coconut milk produces a lot less pulp– you’d definitely have to collect a few batches worth to make the same quantity of pulp needed for this recipe. Please let us all know if you try it!

  2. I made these using my oven dried almond pulp. I had to add one egg, 3tbsp of peanut butter, and bit of extra almond milk. I used garlic powder, dried rosemary and parsley. They came out good.

  3. I was just gifted a dehydrator and I am dying to try it out. If I do try these crackers in there, how long do you think?

  4. Epic fail, thought we’d give this a go with the left over pulp that we have which also had coffee in it, we make coffee with dates and almonds in our blender and wondered what to do with the pulp. Well, coffee biscuits are awful!! 🙁 haha! we’ll have to try it with out the coffee!

  5. I’m so glad to have stumbled across your site (while searching cauliflower pizza crust)… I’m learning to become gluten free after being diagnosed with thyroid disease. Great recipes!

  6. I love your website Megan and how sweet you are! I made these crackers yesterday. They are great with hummus. But we found them to get stuck in our throats if eaten by themselves. I think made with almond flour and adding some moisture to mimic the consistency of the pulp would work great and maybe go down a little easier! I love experimenting with your recipes and am on your blog nearly daily! Thanks for your work for all of us who just want to copy your good ideas!
