Juicing is a really great way to get extra micronutrients from fruits and vegetables.

But, a lot of people wonder what to do with the pulp that is leftover form juicing? It seems like a shame to throw it all away, especially if you’ve gone to the effort and expense of buying organic produce to juice.

I think you’re really going to like this solution of making delicious Green Juice Pulp Crackers that are full of healthy fiber. 

Juice Pulp Recipe Benefits

  • Don’t let your juice pulp go to waste! It’s full of fiber and add bulk to recipes like crackers, muffins, breads, and more.
  • My recipe for Green Juice Pulp Crackers is made with simple ingredients that are also wholesome and healthy.
  • This recipe is adaptable and can be made with your favorite seasonings. I like to use nutritional yeast, coconut aminos, and flax seeds for a crunchy flavorful cracker.

Recipe Steps

It took me a few tries to figure out a juice pulp cracker recipe that actually tastes good and holds together well. I hope you will agree that this recipe fits the bill.

In addition, this recipe is gluten-free, vegan, and made without any oils. Let’s get started!

Step One

The first step, of course, is to make your green juice.

If you are going to make this recipe using the pulp, then I am going to ask that you only include the pulp from vegetables, not from fruit. If you use the pulp from juicing fruits, then that will alter that flavor of the crackers. 

So, juice all of the greens you are going to use first, and then you can always reserve the pulp, juice your fruit, and mix it in with your vegetable juice. That way, the vegetable pulp is kept separate from any fruit pulp.

Step Two

The second step in making your pulp crackers is to mix the pulp with the other cracker ingredients.

For this recipe, I used nutritional yeast, coconut aminos, ground flax seeds or flax meal, chia seeds, and a little bit of water to blend.

Step Three

The third step is to transfer the mixture onto a baking sheet to go into the dehydrator (you could also use your oven if it has a fan and has a minimum temperature setting close to 135 degrees at the most).

I recommend an Excalibur dehydrator.

I used a spatula or rolling pin to flatten it out as much as possible and then used a knife or pizza cutter to score the cracker mixture batter into cracker sizes.

Step Four

The last steps are to flip the crackers once after 12 hours (or midway into oven-baking). Then, let them continue to bake until they are crisp and completely dry (about another 12 hours in the dehydrator). 

In the oven, it may take from 30 minutes to 90 minutes to get the same result.

What Do Juice Pulp Crackers Taste Like?

I really like the flavor of these green juice pulp fiber crackers. It’s pretty amazing that they are made from green pulp that otherwise would have been discarded.

The coconut aminos and nutritional yeast pumps up the flavor and the pulp, and the flax and chia seeds give them a wonderful texture. 

More Ways to Use Juice Pulp

There are lots of recipes you can make using leftover juice pulp. And, to make your life easier, you can freeze the juice pulp in ice cube trays to use later.

Here are some ways to use juice pulp:

  • Compost: Add the pulp to your compost bin as a great way to recycle nutrients back into the soil.
  • Vegetable Broth: Boil the pulp with water, herbs, and spices to create a nutrient-rich vegetable broth.
  • Baking Additive: Incorporate the pulp into bread, muffins, or pancakes for added fiber and nutrients.
  • Smoothies: Blend the pulp back into smoothies for extra fiber and flavor.
  • Dog Treats: Mix the pulp with ingredients like peanut butter and oats to make healthy dog treats (be sure the pulp is free of harmful ingredients for dogs).
  • Soup Thickener: Use the pulp to thicken soups and stews.
  • Veggie Burgers: Combine the pulp with beans, spices, and a binder like breadcrumbs to make veggie burgers.
  • Garden Mulch: Use the pulp directly as a nutrient-rich mulch for garden beds.
  • Pulp Crackers: Mix the pulp with seeds like flax or chia and bake to create homemade crackers.
  • Pulp Ice Cubes: Freeze the pulp with water in ice cube trays to add a nutrient boost to drinks.

Recipe Tips

  • If using an oven, use the minimum temperature setting with the convention fan on and keep a close eye on them so they don’t burn. It will take between 30 minutes to 90 minutes to get them fully crisp in the oven.
  • Store the crackers in an air-tight bag at room temperature for up to 5 days.
  • This recipe for raw crackers can be adapted to use ingredients you like best. You can use the pulp from whatever fresh juice you have, but try not to use just fruit juice pulp. It’s best to use vegetable juice pulp for a savory cracker. Feel free to add seasonings like black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  • You can substitute the chia and flax seeds for sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, if you prefer.

Recipe FAQs 

Do I need to use a food dehydrator to make juice pulp crackers?

You don’t have to. You can use an oven set on the lowest setting. Put the cracker mix on parchment paper or a teflex sheet on a cookie sheet in cracker shapes. It will take between 30-90 minutes in the oven.

What do these vegetable crackers taste like?

They’re really good! You would never guess they are made from vegetable pulp. They have a nice salty flavor that is savory and very satisfying.

These crisp and tasty green juice crackers are a great way to use up the pulp leftover from green juicing. These crackers are vegan and gluten-free!

  • Total Time: 12 hours 15 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x


Units Scale
  • Pulp from 1 bunch of juiced kale leaves and stems and 1 bunch of parsley, or your favorite blend of green vegetables (you will need about 1 1/2 cups of pulp total)
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 12 tablespoons of water, if needed


  1. Combine the juice pulp, ground flax seeds, chia seeds, coconut aminos, and nutritional yeast in a food processor and pulse on high until combined, about 45 seconds. The texture of the dough should be fairly soft, but not too wet. If you need more moisture in your dough, add 1-2 tablespoons of water.
  2. Transfer the mixture onto a dehydrator sheet or baking sheet and flatten as much as possible using a spatula. The thickness of the crackers should be only about 1/4-inch of less. Then, use a knife to score the dough into crackers.
  3. Dehydrate on 120 degrees for 12 hours and then carefully flip over the crackers. Dehydrate for another 12 hours (24 hours total) or until the crackers are completely dry and crispy.
