Four easy steps on how to dehydrate raw almond pulp to make almond flour, plus 10 Creative Ways To Use Almond Pulp.
Have you given the Almond Milk recipe I posted last month a try yet? I’ll admit this post should have come to you right after the almond milk post, but I felt it was more important to do some research on how to use the leftover pulp first. Also, I wanted to provide you with a list of Creative Ways to Use Almond Pulp whether it’s dried or raw. That meant finding other recipes and posts about almond pulp that I myself would try at home.
Honestly, I had no idea what to do with the raw almond pulp for a while either, so I’ve just been freezing most of it. But now that I have this handy list, it’s time to start experimenting.

How to Dehydrate Raw Almond Pulp in the Oven
- 2 cups raw almond pulp leftover from making almond milk
Preheat oven to 225°F.
Spread almond pulp over clean cookie sheet. Bake two hours without opening the oven.
Scrape pulp off cookie sheet with a flat wooden spatula. Rub almond meal between palms of your hands to break any clumps.
Process in a food processor for a finer consistency.
If you're afraid the pulp will stick to the cookie sheet, line it with parchment paper or use a non-stick cookie sheet.
How do you store the almond flour? How long does it keep?
I’ve been storing mine in the pantry in mason jars. I use masking tape as a label to write the date on them. So far that hasn’t been an issue. My oldest one in there is 9 months old and still tastes fine. If you’re not comfortable with that, the refrigerator and freezer work well too. It will last longer if stored in the freezer though.
I hope that helps answer your question.
