Dehydrated Carrot Juice Pulp Crackers (Vegan & Gluten-Free)
If you’re into juicing, you might be wondering how you can use the pulp? I have an answer in these delicious, healthy dehydrated Carrot Juice Pulp Crackers that are vegan and gluten-free.
Carrot Pulp Crackers
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 my 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.
I’m not huge into juicing mainly because I prefer to just put my veggies in a smoothie, but it’s something I do now and again, either to drink or to use as a base for a soup.
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.
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.
Water helps make it easily blend into a healthy batter for these Carrot Juice Pulp Crackers:
After you make the dough, you then need to transfer it to your dehydrator sheets. This recipe makes enough for two dehydrator sheets.
I recommend using an off-set spatula like this one to spread the dough thinly.
Score and bake the crackers in a dehydrator.
You can read in the recipe directions how long I bake the crackers.
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!
