Vegan Blueberry Juice Pulp Muffins

Posted by: on Jun 5, 2012 | 6 Comments

These are surprisingly tasty. I know pulp muffins just sound amazing and make your mouth water (insert sarcasm here). But I was pleasantly surprised by the result of this experiment. I even had test subjects who enjoyed them.

We juice a lot so I wanted a way to use some of the left over pulp. I searched around for recipes and couldn’t find anything that I actually had all the ingredients for. So, I took a muffin recipe I love and a juice pulp recipe I found online and used both as guidelines to make my own. This recipe is the result of two experiments. In the future, I may put some kind of brown sugar, oatmeal, coconut oil crumble on top to add a little extra crisp and crunch.

Ingredients

2 cups pulp (I used carrot, apple, and beet from the morning juice)

1 1/2 cups flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. salt

1/3 cup honey (or agave)

1 tsp. vanilla

½ cup orange juice

6 tablespoons coconut oil

blueberries

walnuts (chopped)

Preparation

  1. Mix the pulp, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together.
  2. Add the wet ingredients (coconut oil, orange juice, honey, and vanilla).
  3. Mix until evenly combined.
  4. Add blueberries and chopped walnuts as you wish.
  5. Bake at 350 for 30 mins.
  6. Let cool and serve!

    Mmmm. I bet peach pulp would be good, too.

    For these I used carrot, apple, and beet pulp from our morning juice. I forgot to mention that!

    I’ll bet this is really good! After all, with all that fluid, it would be very moist, I imagine.

    Now if you are not a juicer, what would you use?

      I bet you could use things like grated carrot or zucchini instead of pulp. But you may need slightly less liquid if you do.
