Juice Pulp CrackersI am definitely someone who likes to graze. I happily have 3 small meals a day and 2 good snacks than just 3 big meals. Finding different things to snack on other than the usual handful of nuts and fruit or a couple of rice cakes with nut butter is always a bonus. Juicing is a good snack but then I’m always left with the dilemma of what to do with the pulp which still contains numerous nutrients and especially fibre which is so important for digestion and general gut health.

Pintrest is often my go to place for this kind of inspiration, and I came across a huge number of recipes for what to do with the left over juice pulp, from veggie burgers to soups, but the crackers are definitely my favourite. They’re really easy, tasty and frugal as you’re using up something which otherwise ends up in the bin.

I used the pulp which was left over after juicing 3 carrots, 4 celery stalks and 1 apple, but you can use the pulp from anything you’ve juiced.

approx 2 cups of pulp

1/2 cup of ground almonds.

sprinkle of dried herbes de provence

pinch of sea salt

Mix together in a bowl and add some water if the mixture is too dry.

With a rolling pin roll out in between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper, place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 30-40 min on Gas Mark 3 (170 C/350F) until crispy. Cut into squares with a pizza cutter or sharp knife.

Spread some homemade humous and add a few watercress leaves and enjoy your snack!
