As some of you may recall, I posted a recipe for making homemade almond milk a few weeks ago. Since I started making my own almond milk, I’ve been trying to find recipes to use up all the leftover pulp. This week I used some of the almond pulp to make a curry spread for sandwiches (very similar to this recipe, except I replaced the chickpeas with almond pulp) and some crackers as well.
I had a little bit of trouble working with the dough (I think I rolled it too thin and it got sticky), but we were quite pleased with the results. If you like the flavor of sesame seeds and sesame oil and need to use up some leftover almond pulp, you’ll love these crackers…!
Sesame Almond Crackers
Inspired by Angie’s Recipes
If you don’t have any almond pulp, you could try making this recipe with almond meal—I haven’t tried it though, so I can’t guarantee that it will work. You may have to adjust the amount of liquid.
- 1 cup (100 grams) spelt flour
- 2/3 cup (100 grams) almond pulp (leftover from making almond milk)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ cup sesame seeds
- ½ teaspoons salt
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
Preheat the oven to 350°, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix together the spelt flour, almond pulp, baking powder, sesame seeds, and salt. Once mixed, stir in the sesame oil and egg until a dough forms.
Roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper until it is about ¼ of an inch thick. Cut the dough into rectangles or squares, and transfer onto baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and crisp. Turn off the heat and leave in the oven for another 30 minutes, before transferring to wire racks to cool.

Three Chefs (Average Tastiness)
|We liked the sesame flavor, but the texture was a tad bit dry. I might leave them in the oven for a little less time the next time I make them.|
Four Easy Chairs (“ABC, Easy as 123…”)
|As I mentioned above, I had a little bit of trouble with the dough, but overall this recipe came together pretty quickly.|
Four Apples (Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise)
|I used whole grain flour, and while the sesame seeds and oil added a little fat, sesame seeds are a good source of beneficial minerals and have been shown to have cholesterol-lowering effects.|
Four Leaves (Mother Earth Approved)
|The spelt flour and almond pulp were organic, but the sesame seeds and oil were not. The egg was local, cage free, and organic.|
