These crackers are an evolution of my Green Juice Crackers, with the most significant change being the inclusion of raw, soaked almonds.

It all starts with carrot pulp, saved from juicing (I use an Omega juicer). These Carrot Juice Pulp  Crackers call for about 2 cups of firmly packed carrot pulp, this results from the juicing of about 1 pound of carrots. You can also make these crackers using the pulp from my Carrot Orange Juice recipe.

You can also include the pulp from juicing other vegetables, but this recipe uses the pulp from a juice that has a lot of carrots. 

Recipe Steps

Step One

For this recipe, you need to soak raw almonds in water overnight, and then rinse and drain them. Feel free to take a further step of removing the skins from each almond, but that’s a lot of work. You can also use a different nut such as cashews, if you prefer.

Step Two

After putting the almonds in a food processor and blending them into a chunky texture, you then add the carrot pulp, ground flax seeds, ground chia seeds, coconut aminos, and all sorts of seasonings.

Step Three

Add just enough water to help the mixture transform into a nice dough consistency.

Step Four

After you make the dough, you then need to transfer it to your dehydrator sheets. This recipe makes enough for two dehydrator sheets.

Step Five

I recommend using an off-set spatula to spread the dough thinly.

Step Six

Score and bake the crackers in a dehydrator. I recommend an Excalibur dehydrator that has a timer and automatic shut-off.

It takes many hours to get these Carrot Juice Pulp Crackers crisp, but this is my new favorite snack. They’re so crisp and flavorful!

I love serving these healthy crackers with a green salad for some extra crunch and flavor.
