carrot bread

I’m going to acquire a nice tan color if I keep eating this many carrots…

After juicing this morning, I saved the carrot pulp.

Bright and beautiful!

Every time I clean my juicer I think about the pulp and what I could do with it. I think this is a good start!

carrot bread

1 cup oats (Bob’s Red Mill gluten free)
1 cup brown rice flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups carrot juice pulp
1 banana, mashed
1 egg (Ener-G replacer)
1/3 cup agave

Mix oats, flour, baking powder and cinnamon. In separate bowl, mix carrot, banana, prepared egg and agave.

Combine with dry ingredients until incorporated. Pour into prepared loaf pan. Bake @ 350 for 50-55 minutes.

This bread has a warm spiciness from the cinnamon. It has a nice crunch with a soft delicious center.

I’m happy with how this loaf turned out, and as I am juicing every day, I will be saving more pulp and experimenting more! I have some fun ideas…

If you juice, have you ever used the pulp?

Oh yum yum. That sounds great. What if you don’t have a juicer (aka no pulp)? I keep seeing awesome recipes using the pulp….

it IS good! you could make this recipe with grated carrot in place of pulp, but I’d reduce to 1 1/2 cups, as the grated carrot will have more moisture.

What a great way to use pulp! I’ve made apple cookies but anything with the word bread is up there on my list! I’m going to have to try this one-yum!

Oh yummmm. I don’t juice. But I all of a sudden have an urge to buy a juicer. And I’m excited to see what else you make from the pulp!

I’m excited, too! :)

I have a garbage full of juiced pulp that we’re using for compost for our garden but would love to use some of it in other recipes. Even though I’m eating raw til February, this would make a great recipe to make then freeze!!

sounds great!! I’m sure it would freeze well, and it’s a nice healthy treat waiting for you after your raw eating !! :)

I tried to use my pulp to make muffins once, and it was a major, major fail. Since then I’ve just thrown it away, but it always feels so wasteful! I’ll have to try out your recipe!

18 spabettie January 19, 2011 at 3:26 pm

was it several fruits/veggies of pulp? I keep them separate…

Ya, you definitely are making me want to buy a juicer. an I used shredded carrots instead? I migh try this with Bob’s GF flour or amranath flour. YUM!

Reply

20 spabettie January 19, 2011 at 3:23 pm

yes, I think you definitely could… you may want to reduce the carrots a bit, maybe 1 1/2 cups, since they’ll have more moisture… amaranth would be great!

I need a juicer in my life like nobody’s business! I want to try this bread! I know you can make crackers out of the pulp too, which I bet would be so awesome!

I’m not a big carrot cake person. But carrot bread? I think I’d be down with it… carrots are more savory and don’t belong in my dessert. :p

28 spabettie January 19, 2011 at 6:31 pm

right?? this bread is awesome possum! I like carrot cake though, as long as there is a 50/50 ratio of cake to cream cheese frosting… :)

29 Heather January 19, 2011 at 5:56 pm

I have never used the pulp but I was always looking for a use for it! I hated throwing it away!

30 spabettie January 19, 2011 at 6:29 pm

I know! this makes me feel better about that, and I get awesome bread, too!! :)

I said the same thing about carrots the other day! I will turn orange. That’s a healthier tan than the alternative, though! ;) Bread looks great!

32 spabettie January 19, 2011 at 6:28 pm

exactly! and probably not even as ORANGE as fake tanner! ha! :)

33 simplyshaka January 19, 2011 at 6:18 pm

Bummer, I have almost all of these ingredients, except the juice or a juicer. I do have carrots though, would I be able to do something with that or blend them up in a magic bullet?

YES !! you could use grated carrots, but maybe reduce to 1 1/2 cups, as they’re going to have more moisture…

Love it. I forgot that I could juice carrots again on WW (I was lowering my sugar before). I always thought about making crackers with my leftover pulp but I always just ended up putting them in the worm bin instead.

38 spabettie January 19, 2011 at 11:46 pm

I am making crackers now – with a different pulp!!

Carrot bread looks so yummy! I’m so not a pulp person lol. You can’t get me near the stuff!

Now this is doing it for me! YUMO!!

I love that it uses REAL carrots. MMM

I love juice with a little pulp, otherwise I need a chew my juice, ha.

oh yes… real carrots over here… it’s funny, I love smoothies, but for my juice I want it JUICE… no pulp!!

I think I would be a baking fanatic if I juiced. I’m horribly cheap and it’d pain me to throw away the pulp. So I’d make muffins and breads. OR I might throw it in a bag and freeze it to make stock later, too.

48 Tim November 21, 2011 at 11:00 pm

I have never thought of using the pulp after juicing, but I am going to do it now and I am starting with this bread! looks fantastic thankyou!

hi Tim!! so happy you found this, cooking with pulp is great! let me know how it goes, okay?
