Pulp Muffins


It’s Wednesday and that means a brand new recipe for you! This past week i have been juicing vegetables like crazy, you know when you are on that health kick? Yep that me right now, although i do consider myself very healthy in what i consume, sometimes i do go overboard. Last week i was juicing morning and night. My favourite is beetroot, carrot, lemon and apple. I was adding garlic and leek but I’m not sure how much longer i can stomach that kind of potency in the morning…ill stick to eating garlic and leek in my cooking i think! I was also juicing leafy greens and parsley of a nighttime before my dinner.


You may be wondering why I’m telling you about my juicing…because what do you get when you juice? PULP! I never knew that you could make all of these things just with the pulp after juicing, it’s great! After i juiced, i quickly popped on over to Pinterest and searched for recipes made with juice pulp and i was instantly amazed at how many wonderful and delicious recipes are out there!

Muffins made from the pulp was one of the first things i saw and i thought YES! I have to make a big batch of pulp muffins, yum! Have you ever had muffins made from pulp before? They are both sweet and slightly savoury, depending what what veggies you juiced with. In this particular recipe, i juiced just carrots, beetroot, lemon and apple. Don’t worry if you used veggies such as garlic, ginger or leeks etc. Those flavours don’t dominate the muffin recipe. Side note: how good is it when you can devour your baked goods are photographing them for your blog? I call it quality control!


I have made a few other recipes using the leftover pulp and i will be sharing those with you in the next few weeks so watch out for those! If you don’t juice, i suggest you think about because it’s a fantastic way to get in your daily serves of vegetables and fruits. I find i have increased energy levels, better sleep, clearer skin and a clearer mind after i have a couple of freshly made juices a day!

    1. Hi Janille! Thank you! So glad you enjoyed these, aren’t they a wonderful way to use up the pulp? I haven’t actually tried freezing these myself, however, I don’t think it would be a problem. If you freeze them soon after baking so they don’t have a chance of spoiling a few days in, if that makes sense. I hope that helps! Sam 🙂

  1. Can you use all almond flour instead of the combination of the three? I don’t have the other two flours lol

    1. Hi Nicole, yes! You can replace the 1/4 cup of LSA with an extra 1/4 cup of almond flour, that should work out just fine 🙂 Hope you enjoy! 🙂

      1. Thank you!!! I’ve been making this all week. 4x to be exact! My 1 year old and I are obsessed, thanks so much for the recipe!

        1. Hi Nicole! That’s fabulous and you’re most welcome! Such healthy muffins for you and your little one to enjoy all week! You have reminded me of these pulp muffins that I’m adding them on my to-do bake this right now! x
