A grain-free and dairy-free approach to cinnamon raisin toast. All the flavor, none of the sugar, grains or unhealthy fats. This vegan and paleo cinnamon raisin bread recipe is made from leftover almond pulp.
Almond pulp, what? Let me explain.
What is almond pulp?
When you make your own almond milk at home (like my Nourishing Turmeric Milk) you separate the liquid (milk) from the fiber (pulp). This pulp is the fiber of the nut that is not broken down in the milk making process.
It looks like this…
Why almond pulp is your friend::
Helps you poo (common, we all love pooing!), maintains balanced blood sugar (which helps eliminate sweet cravings) aaaaand can help you reach your happy weight. Plus, almonds are loaded with biotin which helps your body metabolize sugars and fats efficiently.

I shared this recipe on the Natural Vitality blog today.
Visit Natural Vitality Living for this new Almond Pulp Cinnamon Raisin Toast recipe. It’s gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free + free of processed sugar.
The little toast pieces are best served with strawberry chia jam (recipe below)…
This no-refined-sugar strawberry jam has the added benefits of fiber from chia seeds and magnesium from Natural Calm (my favorite anti-stress supplement)—and it’s super quick. No slaving over a hot stove!
Now that summer is here, locally grown fruit is far less likely to contain harmful pesticides, herbicides and genetically modified organisms than conventional (non-organic) fruit found at a mega grocery chain.
Go picking, find something local, and make this spread for your grain-free cinnamon raisin toast!
- Add strawberries, Natural Calm, honey and water to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, uncovered, on medium-high heat.
- Once boiling, reduce heat to medium and add chia seeds. Continue to lightly boil, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring every minute or so.
- Transfer mixture to a jar and allow jam to cool on the counter. Use right away or cover and refrigerate overnight to thicken completely.
