These “bread” crumbs were a mistake.
I have a hard time throwing away the almond pulp from homemade almond milk. In an effort to be less wasteful, I decided I would make almond pulp crackers. Unfortunately, my crackers didn’t stay together they first time around… but I won’t call my efforts a total fail. Instead of creating crackers, I created an herby, delicious crumble. I’ll call my recipe paleo “bread” crumbs.
These “bread”crumbs are a perfect topper for baked fish, crusted chicken, baked pasta, or as a seasoning on scrambled eggs. A friend recommended using it on top of macaroni and cheese… but before I got too crazy, I tried it on baked tilapia. Hello! So good.
Moral of the story: When recipes fail, don’t give up. Instead of throwing something away, think of how it can be repurposed — especially if it is delicious. Recipe below!
Herby Almond Pulp Paleo “Bread” Crumbs
- 1 cup of almond pulp
- 1/4 flaxseed
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp of ghee
- 1 tsp of dried rosemary
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 300°F.
- Give your almond pulp some time to dry out. Then, then combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl.
- Spread the mixture out on a sheet pan and pack it down tightly (like you would a granola). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until it starts to golden.
- Remove from the oven and let cool. Maybe you’ll get lucky this will stay together to make crackers. If not, do as I did and crumble it up and store in an airtight mason jar.
- Use like a breadcrumb in your favorite recipes.
