Vanilla Almond Pulp Granola

  • Author: Jen
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 3 cups 1x


A vegan, paleo 5 ingredient granola recipe that is sweetened with dates instead of refined sugar and absolutely delicious. Great for breakfast or dessert!


  • 1 cup almond pulp from a batch of almond milk
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. After making your almond milk, set almond pulp aside and add walnuts and dates into your high speed blender. No need to wash it first.
  3. Pulse until a coarse mixture forms. you may need to stop and stir up the mixture and/or scrape down the sides a couple times.
  4. Add almond pulp, vanilla extra and salt to blender and pulse until a grainy mixture forms.
  5. Dump mixture onto lined baking sheet and break up with your hands to form a single layer.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes then stir/break up mixture into small pieces.
  7. Bake for an additional 10-12 minutes.
  8. Let cool for 15 minutes and store in a sealed container on the counter for a week, or in the freezer for a few months.


If you would rather make this in a food processor, follow the same steps. The process is a bit quicker since the nuts and dates mix a bit better there, but I like to do it in the blender so I don’t have to clean another tool.

Feel free to store leftover almond pulp for up to three days in the refrigerator before making this granola.
