These healthy Juice Pulp Muffins are a great way to use up all that leftover fruit and veggie pulp you have leftover after juicing making these muffins super moist!


Okay so don’t be scared by the title of this post.

These muffins are actually delicious, nutritious and won’t make you feel bad about wasting all those veggies when you juice!  I wrote a detailed post at the beginning of the year on why I love juicing so much, and YES I still do!  Juicing has become a part of my morning routine and when I need a bit of a detox, I’ll go ahead and juice for a few days along with some added protein and salads.  It just makes me feel SO much better!  Well one of the main questions I had (as well as most of you) was what can you do with ALL that colorful pulp you have leftover from all your yummy fruits and veggies??  There is so much amazing fiber left over that it’s just so sad to throw out and I just cringe at the thought of wasting such healthy, clean produce!  Sooo I did a little research as well as some trial and error (that’s the FUN part!) and found a great recipe using all this pulp in the form of MUFFINS!

Seriously folks, who doesn’t love a good breakfast muffin?  Or dessert muffin?  Or even a post-workout muffin??  Yes as you can see muffins are great ANY time and since they are packed full of fiber, they’re also deliciously healthy for you too.  Luckily for you, if you already have your pulp ready, making the muffins is the easy part!

Use all that delicious leftover pulp in these Healthy Juice Pulp Muffins! | Eat Yourself Skinny

Any combination of fruits and veggies will work for these muffins and experimenting can be fun too!  For this specific recipe I just used one of my favorite morning juices which consists of kale, carrots, green apples and ginger.  Carrots are great for these muffins because they produce a lot of pulp and are so good for you!  These muffins have a great flavor without being overly sweet, so if you do prefer SWEET muffins feel free to be generous with your honey or other sweetener.

Another idea would be to throw in some protein powder if you’re looking for a great post-workout snack!

    I love the idea of using the fruit and veggie pulp this way. Sometimes I throw it into a dinner recipe so it doesn’t go to waste (and it works as hidden extra veggies) but these muffins are much more fun.

  2. Sherri says:

    Hi! Love this recipe. I have no flax seed meal, however, and I’m wondering what I could substitute for it. Someone said eggs, but I suppose that depends on the purpose of the flax seed meal, which I’ve never used and don’t know anything about.

    Thanks! 🙂

  3. Naomi says:

    If there is cucumber in the juice & part of the pulp would it effect baking in any way? I’ve been separating the pulp while juicing in case cucumber pulp would ruin the end product. Thanks

    can you use almond flour instead of wheat flour?

    1. Kelly says:

      Yes you could, but the muffins would be pretty dense. I would suggest substituting 25% of the flour for almond flour (so 3/4 cup almond flour) so you can still achieve cake-like muffins!

  5. Yobie says:

    I thought this was a great idea too! But having just completed a week of juicing…. I think it was too much fibre too soon and woke up with the runs today! Saves having a colonic I guess. Has anyone else had this problem?
