Almond pulp. If you make your own almond milk, you’ve undoubtedly had the dilemma of, “what do I do with all this leftover pulp?”

Well, say hello to my Raw Goji and Cacao Bars. They are the perfect solution. They are also a delicious energy boost. Especially if you can eat them. I can’t, so I had smoked oysters instead. Not quite the same thing… but nutrient dense nonetheless.

Dressed up all pretty for sale!

Don’t worry if you have no almond pulp, just grind up some raw almonds in your food processor or vitamix.

Raw Goji and Cacao Bars

1 1/4 c. almond pulp (dehydrated)
12 medjool dates, blended into a paste (use less if the almond pulp is moist)
3 Tbsp. goji berries
2 Tbsp. cacao nibs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. sea salt

  1. Just mix all ingredients in a bowl or pulse gently in a food processor (you don’t want to grind down the berries or nibs).
  2. Press into a pan and chill.
  3. Cut into bars! Makes about 8 good-sized bars.

Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down 👊🏻 Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.
You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
