Pulp Cookies

I have been on a juice fast for 5 days now and I have a ton of left over pulp. I have a Waring Pro juicer which I thought was going to be a good one, but it leaves me with a TON of pulp after. I don't like that, but I have found some creative recipes to use that valuable fiber. Here is one that I just tried out today:

Recipe for Banana-Carrot Pulp-Cranberry Gluten-free Muffin Tops (and Vegan Too)


3 C. organic Carrot Pulp
3 C. organic Quick Oats/Oat Flour Mix (I just throw the Oatmeal in the Vitamix) (I have also used part Quinoa flour-- also whirred up in my Vitamix)
1 T. Arrowroot Powder
2 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt
1 1/2 C. organic Cane Sugar (or similar sweetener)
2 tsp. Baking Soda
2 T. Cinnamon
1 C. organic Thompson Raisins
3 C. Mashed Banana AND oil to top up (such as Olive Oil)
6 T. Flaxseed Egg-Replacer (*See recipe below)
Drops of Young Living Thieves and Ginger Essential Oils (optional)
1/2 Bag fresh Cranberries

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. I use a silicone mat on a cookie sheet (no greasing of pan required) but grease up a pan otherwise. Make up Flaxseed Egg Replacer if you haven't done so already:

The Recipe: Flaxseed Egg-Substitute

  • 1/2 cup flaxseed
  • 1 1/2 cup water


  1. Grind flaxseed to a fine powder in an electric coffee grinder.
  2. Mix flaxseed and water in blender and blend on high for 2 minutes.
  3. Chill for 1 hour to set up. It can be used now, but it has a more egg-like consistency if allowed to chill.
  4. Keep refrigerated up to 3 days

2. Use a wooden spoon to combine the Carrot Pulp, Oats/Oat Flour Mix, Arrowroot powder, Sugar, Celtic Sea Salt, Baking Soda and Cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
3. Add in Thompson Raisins and stir until consistent texture
4. Mash about 5 ripe bananas and add in oil until the combo makes 3 Cups (or whirr the bananas in the Vitamix and then add in oil)
5. Make a hole in the dry ingredients and add in the banana-oil and flaxseed egg replacer. Add in other spices (including a couple of drops of essential oils, if using). Stir.
6. Add in fresh cranberries.
7. Mound in cookie shapes on the pan. Bake for about 10-20 minutes Take out just before they look ready. Cool on racks.

This site is full of really amazing recipes that I am excited to try, I just stumbled on this site today. Plus it's great to see that the recipes have Young Living Essential Oils in them, I love this because I am a big believer in using the oils as often as possible.

I am so excited to learn about the flaxseed egg replacement! It works perfect =)

I made a few slight modifications you can always try too. I used coconut oil instead of olive oil (only because we didn't have any) Then I realized most of my bananas were too green to even pull open! So I grabbed a buncha leftovers in the fridge to make that "3 cups of mashed banana" I ended up with 2 bananas, about a cup of leftover pumpkin I had previously purred for a soup, and less than a cup of leftover pineapple from my juicing, and lastly...applesauce. Also I only put in 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup agave.

BE CREATIVE with your baking, you never know what you might come up with!

  1. Hi Chelsea... you are most welcome to this recipe, and I like your modifications (I do a lot of that myself...) One of our fave ways to use juice pulp is for dehydrated pizza crust. If you are interested, it's here: http://www.rawgenesis.com/2008/08/best-raw-pizza-crust.html

    I like your style: creative and adventurous!
