If you're a juicer, these are the muffins for you, as they make use of the leftover pulp! You can change up what type of pulp you use, I've made these with carrot, apple, spinach, beet, ginger, orange, and zucchini pulp. Usually a combo that includes carrot or zucchini though. You'd be surprised, spinach in a muffin is great!
Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly spray 2 muffin tins or paper liners to prevent sticking and set prepared pans aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and spices and set aside.
In a larger bowl, mix applesauce (and/or pumpkin) juicer pulp, maple syrup, and vanilla.
Add dry mix to wet in 2-3 batches if mixing by hand, or all at once if using an electric mixer. Blend all ingredients until just combined- do not over mix!
Fill muffin cups evenly and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Enjoy! (These muffins actually get better as they sit, so they are even better day the second day)
**NOTE: The nutrition info is based on using cranberries and does NOT include juicer pulp. The muffins in the picture are made with beet, carrot, apple, and orange pulp with a handful of vegan choc. chips tossed in.
As mentioned above, this is an easy recipe to change- I've been out of applesauce and just made some quick raw applesauce (peel, core and roughly chop apples and blend in food processor until a consistency you prefer, you need 2-3 apples per cup). I've added pineapple and mango instead of the cranberries, and I've used raisins, and sometimes nuts to change up the taste. This is just a fairly foolproof, easy way to use up the leftover pulp that tastes great and is good for you too!
