Frequently Asked Questions:
How do you make almond pulp?
Almond pulp is the leftover ingredients from making your own almond milk. You could use the pulp leftover after making any dairy free milk (oat, cashew, coconut, etc. noting that the taste will differ).
We used an Almond Cow plant based milk machine that we were sent for a sponsored video to make our own almond milk and then the pulp that was left over. You can view our video above to see!
You can also do this with a blender by following our instructions for homemade vegan almond milk.
What can I sub for almond pulp?
We get it, not every is our here making their own milk in order to have leftover pulp. If that’s you, then you can sub out the pulp for almond flour or oats or oat flour. We would suggest a combination of old fashioned oats and then a finer flour.
Can I make these vegan snickerdoodle energy balls Top 8 Allergen Free?
Before you see almond listed twice and think you can’t have these because they contain nuts, let us reassure you that this recipe can be made top 8 allergen free.
For the almond butter – you can replace that with any nut butter or sun butter that you are permitted to have.
As far as the almond pulp, you could use pulp from making oat milk as well. And the same goes for the additional almond flour, you can replace with oat flour.
Obviously any changes made will make a taste difference from our original recipe; however, it is still a great snack.
Are these oil free?
We make our own almond butter (literally just almond ground up in a high speed blender like a Vitamix). Because of that, there’s no oil in this recipe. We highly recommend that you make your own almond butter and almond milk if you want these to be oil free since most store bought brands contain oil.
Can I prep these ahead? How long will they last?
Yes! These vegan energy balls can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 weeks in an air tight container or a freezer for up to 3 months.
If you freeze, you just want to let them thaw out for 15-30 minutes before consuming.
Because they are soft, we do not recommend leaving them sit out at room temperature.

- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- melted vegan chocolate
- Into a large bowl, add the almond butter, maple syrup, almond pulp, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir until well combined.
- Add 2 tbsp of almond flour at a time until the mixture has come together well. It will look sticky but should not come off when you touch.
- Let sit in freezer for 15 minutes or fridge for 30 to allow the flour to soak up the liquid.
- Roll into 1 tbsp size balls until no mixture remains.
- Store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks or in the freezer up to 3 months.
- Once all your balls are rolled, you can either combine optional cinnamon and sugar together and roll each ball in the mixture, or you could dip them in melted vegan chocolate.
