Juice Pulp Carrot Muffins from Healthful Pursuit

Who hates wasting all that fabulous leftover pulp from juicing?! I do, I do! I’ve been searching for a tasty muffin recipe that uses juice pulp and I came across this one from Healthful Pursuit.  These were so delicious! They require the pulp from 4 large carrots, 2 apples and a 1-2″ size piece of ginger.  This makes an amazing juice so what better way to spend a Saturday morning than to make a fresh juice and whip up a batch of these tasty muffins. They are also gluten-free and dairy-free.Juice Pulp Carrot Spice Muffins

Head on over to Leanne’s website for the full recipe.  The only change I made was instead of making 24 mini-muffins I made 12 regular size muffins.  I also added about 1/4 cup of the fresh juice because the batter was quite thick, which she does say, but I didn’t want them to be too dry 🙂 Also, don’t skimp on the spices, it really enhances the flavor!Juice Pulp Carrot MuffinsNutritional Info per muffin (when making 12 muffins)

    Bob loves carrot juice and I like to add the pulp to muffins or cookies too.
