Do you Juice? I am not a serious juicer, however, we do try to juice frequently and I usually find it wasteful and hard to just throw out the pulp.
This morning we juiced carrots, apples and a small amount of a beet for breakfast and I saved the pulp to make these awesome muffins….No oil and extra protein!
Carrot Apple Pulp Muffins
Pulp of 4 - 8 medium carrots
¾ cup of applesauce
1 cup milk
¼ cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 scoop protein powder (natural) unsweetened
2 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp ginger
¼ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ cup sweetened dried cranberries
½ -3/4 cup of chocolate chips ( I add ¾ because extra chocolate is good J)
Mix together and bake for approximately 20- 25 min on 350. This recipe makes a little more than 12 muffins.
My pottery bowls make an awesome catch all for one last big muffin!
