how to make pulp bread/crackers (raw and baked)

by Lori and Michelle on March 5, 2012

Happy Monday luvs!

everyone have  a great weekend?? we sure did. enjoyed some relaxation as well as made a very big business decision for our bakery yesterday. more on that later.

juice pulp raw crackers

today we finally have the recipe you all have been waiting for….okay maybe our protein thin mints are more exciting than pulp bread-crackers, haha

most people refer to them as pulp crackers although we find them to more bread like than crispy like a cracker. either way you look at it, this recipe is  great way to use up leftover juice pulp

juice veggies

here is what we did for the juice in this video – 4 stalks of celery, 1 beet, 1 small apple, 8 carrots. made 12 oz of juice.

veggie juice

 

here is the video of us making our veggie pulp bread/crackers

here is another version of our pulp crackers

we cannot get enough of these pulp bread – crackers lately, love them with salads.

we crave them. might sound like a weird craving, but we love the flavor. which as we mentioned in the video, a lot of the flavor depends on the foods you are juicing!!! so please remember that when making pulp bread and crackers. if you use bitter greens, your bread might taste bitter.

we have made a few with a handful of greens thrown in…still yummy to us!

this one we dehydrated overnight and it got real dry and crispy!

we also failed tried to make a pulp bread loaf….not so good.

covered this bad boy and tahini and it was just fine, haha

tahini to the rescue ;) haha seriously could live off tahini

okay now let us know what you think of our pulp bread – crackers

till next time,

Tahini and almond butter can often save anything in my opinion, since I refuse to waste just about any food! Loved the video, although I don’t have a juicer I wish I did now just to make these.

i don’t have a juicer and have been juicing using a blender. it works fine. there are lots of recipes and videos out there to help you. can’t wait to try this pulp bread!

i really want to try making these! i always give the juice pulp to our chickens. they get all the “left overs”- banana peels, trimmings from veggies, etc. but i think its time to break out the old dehydrator and try this :)

What a cool idea! I bet they’d be so good dipped in hummus! Good call covering the failed loaf with tzatziki aka the magic sauce that makes everything better.

L&M-
Wanted to tell you that you’ve inspired me to do a plank a day–this is my third week and I’m up to 2 minutes :) Wondering if you have you a recipe that uses the pulp from making almond milk?

we do have a recipe using pumpkin seed pulp, but you could easily use almond pulp http://www.pure2raw.com/2011/07/raw-gluten-free-easy-purple-bread-recipe/

let us know if we can help anymore

Happy day!

Yum—I love pulp crackers! I don’t make them often (actually, I haven’t been juicing lately), but now I want to start again!
Thanks for sharing how you do it!

haha, I’m sorry but the finished prodcuct of the bread pulp made me laugh a bit. The pulp bread crackers however, really do look like a great addition to the plate of veggies… making it a more complete meal. I like this new idea. And as always, thanks for posting!

My little sister got a juicer for Christmas and we pondered over what the heck we could do with the fresh pulp after juicing . . .she’s going to be thrilled when she sees this recipe! It’s such a great way to use all that you have – nothing to waste!

interesting! whenever i make my crackers i don’t add water since they pulp has some residual to soak up with the flax seed. i’ll have to give this a try!

My friend & I tried to make up a recipe for crackers last night (using the pulp) Then I found your recipe today, SOOO excited to try it because ours didn’t work so well, very bready! Nor did I think to throw the pulp in the food processor! Nor did I add any water! Thank you for posting your recipe!!!

Made pulp crackers last night using pulp (carrot, tomatillo, ginger, celery,) almond meal, black sesame seeds, white sesame seeds, 2 tsp sesame oil, 1/4 tsp red pepper. After I spread it on the baking sheet and scored it, I sprinkled it lightly with coarse sea salt. I picked the ‘lumps’ of carrot out of the pulp before I processed the mixture and processed it pretty fine and baked it at 350 for an hour to get crispy-er. Love them! Ginger

I made these from carrot pulp and added dried Jalapeno’s, Flax seed, and southwest seasoning! I can’t wait for them to be done:)

just made these out of pureed veggies drained out of my vegetable stock. threw in chia seeds and water, smoothed onto tray, covered with some mixed grains (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc…) and threw them in the oven as i dont have a dehydrator. pretty tasty! nice texture. fun andfunny to think im eating crackers made up of veggies lol. thanks for letting me know how to do this without a dehydrator as all other recipes i see on web need one.

Hi Girls, love your work.

Reply

Lori and Michelle February 12, 2013 at 1:14 pm

Jenni it varies every time but love cumin, rosemary basil coriander. Any spices you like will work.

Lucy August 18, 2013 at 3:44 pm

amazing idea. can’t wait to try this!

I wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful pulp cracker recipe. It is so tasty and I like the idea of using the entire fruit or vegetable. I’ve tried this both ways, baking and dehydration, and prefer dehydration for that satisfying cracker crunch. So easy, yummy and non-wasteful! Perfect!

Love, love, love pulp crackers! I throw in some sunflower and pumpkin seeds, as well. My favourite cracker side is raw guacamole. I just smash up avocado with some pico de gallo and slather it on. :)
