These Healthy Juice Pulp Muffins are moist and delicious! Made without sugar and full of nutrition. These muffins are the perfect recipe to make with your leftover juice pulp. They can also be made with shredded carrots if you don’t have juice pulp.
I recently got a new juicer (Hurom juicer) and I LOVE it so much! Where has it been all my life? So being new to juicing I quickly realized that each time you make a juice there is pulp as well. And that pulp doesn’t need to go to waste! There are so many great ways to use it. Today I am sharing this delicious Healthy Juice Pulp Muffin recipe using the pulp from the delicious Carrot Pineapple Orange Juice I made.
Maybe I’m weird but I thought the pulp was so cool! Here you see pulp from a few carrots, 1/2 a pineapple and 2 oranges.
I made the batter for these delicious muffins using healthy ingredients like white whole wheat flour, applesauce, and honey instead of any sugar. Then for the last step, I simply added in the pulp I had from the juice I had previously made.
Please note you can still make this recipe if you don’t have juice pulp! Just substitute another shredded vegetable. I suggest carrot but I’m sure many other vegetables and even fruit would work. If you’d like to make it the flavors I did I would suggest 3/4 cup shredded carrot, 1/4 cup crushed pineapple and 1/2 tablespoon zest of an orange.
The batter is added to a greased muffin tin and then put in the oven for about 18 minutes.
It came out looking amazing!
Everyone I shared this with really liked it including my 1-year-old!

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, ginger, and salt.
- Make a small well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the butter, honey, egg, vanilla, and applesauce.
- Stir ingredients together until just combined. (Don't over mix).
- Fold in the juice pulp (or shredded carrots) just until combined (again don't overmix).
- Divide batter evenly among the muffin tin. Bake for 18-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
