#SnackAttack : GARBAGE COOKIES!
Let me explain. •
I make my own almond milk. It’s a non-negotiable for me. Does it take time? Planning? Does it wake up the neighbors? All of the above, yes. But the creaminess of homemade almond milk is unparalleled + I just got hooked a few years ago when I started. Also, when you realize your homemade stuff only lasts 4 days in be fridge before starting to smell funky, you start get properly skeeved by what they’re putting in the boxed stuff to make it shelf stable to up to 1 year from packaging 🤯 I’m not judging you for drinking boxed milk, chill. I KNOW it’s more convenient, and I’m not immune to opening up a can of coconut milk when I forget to soak the almonds, we’re all human.
The one downside of homemade almond milk though... is that I make it so often, I now have WAY TOO MUCH ALMOND MEAL. I refuse to throw out the pulp, so I dehydrate it and jar it, use it for baking. But then the treats I bake don’t need that much almond meal sooooo.... one day I ran out of jars + stood there saying “this is ridiculous”. I was about to throw it out bur I just couldn’t. So! I turned the garbage into cookies. I threw the pulp, some almond butter, dates + vanilla extract in the processor and gave it a spin. I... did not succeed. ♀️ I just ended up with really delicious sludge that would not solidify. Not convenient. So I adjusted the quantities on the next batch, added a few other things to amp it up + voila! Garbage cookies.
They make a great afternoon grumbly-tummy satisfier, + I’m in the process of breaking them down to see where they fit in the nutrition plan for my upcoming challenge groups. as always, these are #paleotreats not to be confused with actual FOOD (I.e. don’t eat 5 at a time), but they are technically #paleo #vegan #glutenfree #raw #allnatural #refinedsugarfree and will likely be included in my new e-booklet
