After I made almond milk for my almond panna cotta, I was in an almond haze. There was nothing but almonds almonds almonds in my mind. I used every free second thinking about what to do with the pulp. Yes, I saved the pulp, such a shame to throw it away, don't you think?
I didn't dehydrate the pulp, contrary to popular opinion (on the internet), because I don't have a dehydrator. But as Tim Gunn would say, make it work, people!
My first attempt to utilise the pulp was this really healthy almond pulp pancake with organic flour and golden honey. First time I made it, I added too much almond pulp and the pancakes were too grainy. So, I changed the ratio a little bit. Presto! A pillowy almond pancake.
Drown it with your favourite syrup. Mine is the gloriously golden honey.
PS: If it's still too pulpy & grainy for you, tough it out, kiddies! Just kidding. You could reduce the amount of almond pulp further, but not too much, or you won't have any almonds in it at all. Don't forget to make up the difference in self-raising flour.
