Vegan almond biscuits

IMG_5870

I am not a vegan but I am trying to find healthier options for myself, and I also really don’t like to waste anyfood when possible.

My friend from London is here so I made some almond milk for her today. Healthy treat. After blending the almonds with water, we filtered the ilk and saved the almond powder, thinking that we’d make something out of it. Later today, I threw together the amlond powder with a few other ingredients and made really nice biscuits. I used organic ingredients because some ingredients are just easier to find in organic shops, like raw almonds, coco oil or rice flour.

Here is the basic recepie, I’m sure it could be improved with spices or cacao powder or sesame seeds as my friend suggested):

200 g of almond powder (left from drained almond milk)

70 g of rice flour

80 g of coco oil (room temperature)

50 g of brown sugar

Vanilla

1 tbsp of water

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, adding to water  last to help create a rough sticky and crumbly dough. Roll small amounts of the preparation in the palm of your hand to make small balls. Flatten with a fork.

Bake for 10 to 12 min in pre-heated oven (180° – Th 6).

Leave to cool. Enjoy !

Milk

Milk

My lovely brother was very kind to me for Christmas this year. He gave me a beautiful blender to make smoothies and other great food preparations.

Here is (just under) a litre of 100% organic almond milk that I made tonight. It took me 20 minutes max and tastes really nice. You can fin some tutorials online to find out how to make almond milk at home. I used a tutorial by Sasha from Stiggly NYC. Very easy !
Now I have to decide how I’ll use it …

 

EDIT: I tried it the first day and wasn’t fully convinced by the texture. I very strongly recomment to filter your milk to seperate the actual milk from the almonds. Then the milk is wonderfully silky and smoothe. I’m trying to work out what to do with the almond powder left from filtering … Any suggestions ?
