Italian Seasoned Croutons (using almond meal)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

I already made a wonderful recipe using almond pulp, which is the left over remains from making almond milk.  Because I don’t always have extra pulp on hand I thought I was play around and see how they would turn out using almond meal.  Almond meal is ground almonds, not the left over pulp.  There is a difference.  You can purchase almond meal these days or you can simply make it which I recommend because you will have been control over the quality of your product.   In the end, I preferred using the almond pulp for the lighter texture.  I just wanted you to have an option.

Ingredients:

Preparation:

  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the almond meal, water, nutritional yeast, Braggs, Italian seasoning and onion powder,  mix well.  I used my hands to make sure it was well incorporated.
  2. Place batter on the teflex sheet that comes with you dehydrator, press it out with your hands.
  3. Place a second teflex sheet over the top of the batter and using a rolling-pin,  roll out nice and evenly.  The thickness is whatever you desire.
  4. Remove the top teflex sheet after rolling it out and using a pizza cuter or off-set spatula, create small squares.
  5. Dehydrate at 145 degrees (F) for 45 mins, then reduce to 115 degrees (F) and dehydrate until dry.
  6. Store in a sealed, glass container.

Yields:  1 dehydrator tray

    Good morning Amie-Sue :)

    I am confused with this recipe as you talk about almond meal but the list of ingredients says almond pulp. I understand the difference but I am wondering what you actually used in this recipe…. meal or pulp? I will be using pulp so just want to be sure the rest of the ingredients and directions reflect that.

    Thank you! I am so thankful for your site, your personality that shines through and your heart that goes into it! Bless you ♥ Robyn
