This granola is now my top favorite use for the leftover nut pulp you get after making a fresh batch of nut milk! The nut pulp creates a light and crunchy granola. It’s perfect for guilt free, grain free snacking. I sell high quality 100% nylon mesh bags, made here in the USA, on my website for $10 each (free shipping!) so you can make batch after batch of fresh almond, walnut, or hazelnut milk, and then also have an endless supply of nut pulp to make this granola. I love pure + simple recipes like this, where nothing goes to waste and the whole family can enjoy them.
This recipe was inspired by a photo Alicia took of the honey nut granola she made from a recipe in the cookbook, A Place to Start Without Sugar or Starch, which I haven’t actually read yet myself. She shared the photo in our Low/No Starch Diet for Ankylosing Spondylitis on Facebook. And I was like, awesome! A granola made from nut milk pulp! Brilliant. I created my own version below. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
Feel free to use the pulp from any nuts. Almonds seem to yield the most pulp. You can also use walnut, hazelnut, or another nut that you prefer….
