Will and I recently started juicing, and I really wanted to find a way to start using the pulp so that it didn’t go to waste. There’s a bunch of options out there which is amazing, but this one I loved because you could really use any type of pulp mixed with carrot pulp and it will make a great bread! In this recipe I used carrot and apple pulp, but feel free to experiment!

Ingredients: 

1 1/2 cups carrot & apple pulp

1 medium carrot, grated (leave peel on if organic, peel if not!)

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup agave nectar

2 flax eggs (1 tbsp  ground flax seed + 3 tbsp water mixed and refrigerated for at least 15 minutes)

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1/2 cup dried cranberries

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In large mixing bowl, combine oil and agave together and mix well. Add in flax eggs, vanilla, apple and carrot pulp, and grated carrot.

In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, mix until blended, then add to dry ingredients mixing until smooth.

Add in walnuts and cranberries and fold into the mixture.

Pour into a greased 9″ loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool for 10 minutes before enjoying!

Banana Bread Protein Muffins

2 Sep

Image

I don’t know about you guys, but I get pretty tired of just putting protein powder into smoothies everyday! Will and I made these muffins last night and they are soooo tasty and packed with protein! They’re very simple to make and you’ll probably have most of the ingredients you need already in your house! And if you’re not one for protein powder just omit the protein powder, and the almond milk and you have regular banana bread muffins!

Ingredients:

3 Bananas, Ripe

1/4 Cup vegetable oil

1/2 Cup – 1 Cup almond milk

1 Ts pure vanilla extract

3/4 Cup organic sugar, or sweetener of your choice!

2 Cups all-purpose flour

1/2 Cup brown rice protein powder, vanilla flavour

1 Ts salt

1 Ts baking soda

1 Tbs cinnamon

1 Ts nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream sugar and oil together until smooth. In separate bowl mash bananas, then add to sugar/oil along with 1/2 cup almond milk and vanilla, mix well. In large bowl mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the wet ingredients and mix throughly. Depending on your protein powder you might need to add a bit more almond milk so if you have more of a bread consistency just add 1/4 cup almond milk at a time until desired consistency is reached. Line 12 muffin trays and fill 3/4 full with batter. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes then enjoy!
