Almond Pulp Macaroons

Given that I make my own almond milk I often end up with lots of almond pulp, which usually ends up in cookies (such as these yummy Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Almond Cookies or the Almond/Hazelnut Blondies), crackers or gets stored in the freezer for future. Well this time these yummy macaroons happened, which included almond pulp, coconut shreds, coconut oil, maple syrup and maca powder, coated with dark chocolate. I baked the macaroons, because I once tried almond pulp in a raw fudge recipe and it tasted horrible after a couple of days. So this time I decided to bake them at low temperature. But I have a feeling that these macaroons coated in dark chocolate would still taste great even if raw. I haven’t tried that yet though, so if you decide to give it a go, do it at your own risk please 😉
