I felt bad about all the leftovers my juice was making and needed something to use it all up!
Enter juice pulp muffins! I tweeted to all my twitter friends that I was on the hunt for a recipe and Kristen from Kristen’s kitchen sent me this one for Carrot Spice Muffins!!
I followed the recipe mostly
- 2 cups four – used whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon -used about 1 tsp
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger - used extra
- 1/4 tsp allspice – didn’t have omitted
- 1/8 tsp ground clove -nope
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg -none
- 1/3 cup cane sugar – used regular sugar
- 1 cup oat milk – 1 cup* unsweetened soy milk
- 1/3 cup sunflower oil – grapeseed oil.
- 1 tbsp white vinegar
- 4 carrots- peeled and grated –use all juice pulp instead from about 3 juices.
- Topped with Chia seeds – my addition!!
*I actually ended up using about 2 cups of soy milk.
Preheat oven to 375 , grease up a muffin pan (pam)
In a medium bowl, mix dry ingredients.
In a small bowl mix together wet ingredients.
Pour wet into dry, and stir to combine, fold in carrots,
Spoon into muffin tin, and bake for 20-25 minutes (mine took about 30 mins each), or until a knife comes out clean!
My little pink muffins – full of beets, carrots, oranges, apples, strawberries, celery, ginger and a few other yummy ingredients!
They turned out super moist and really yummy! One bite you can taste orange, then orange!! I highly recommend giving them a try!!
Do you have any ideas for ways to use up juicer pulp? I’ve heard a few people say they are testing out pulp crackers!!?!?
Anywhoo… I haven’t been feeling so hot the last few days, so I’m trying to beat it out of me with juice!! Glorious juice!
This orange one is my cold but kicker ( I just decided) it has orange, grapefruit, ginger, strawberry and carrot and is oh so yummy!
I few of you mentioned that I have inspired you to dust off your juicers!! YAY!!! What recipes have you been using?
I’m looking for one that is a little less fruit and a bit more veggies!
-Skip past this part if you have no interest in the wedding!
I haven’t spoken about the "wedding” lately much – and I know some of you are wanting details!!!
I think we decided on the RIU Emerald Bay in Mazatlan – it’s a little bit higher than we were hoping (for the week), but they have an amazing wedding package, and it’s a beautiful hotel.
We are going with the attitude that as long as Dave and I are there, everyone else is icing on the cake!!
Most people we have asked have said they have paid between $1600-2000 to go to a destination wedding… Our price is in there somewhere. There were some things that were non negotiable for both us and my parents, so once you set those restrictions – it gets pricey I guess?
We understand it won’t make everyone happy… but let’s be honest, if you have ever planned a wedding, you all know that it’s impossible to make EVERYONE happy right?!
Has anyone been to this resort??!~End of wedding talk~
Tell me something exciting today? What’s going on exciting in your life?!?!xo Jess
