At MOD, we are passionate about reducing the amount of waste produced whether that be through less plastic packaging on our products or simply by reducing the amount of food that is wasted each and every day.
Many people may think that the process of juicing is wasteful as the pulp of the fruit or vegetable is essentially removed from the juice, and more often than not, this is then tossed in the bin. But we are here to show you that the pulp of most produce that you juice can be repurposed into something else entirely.
One of our favourite uses is to add the leftover pulp into muffins. Adding the pulp not only gives your muffins a hit of fibre but it's also pre-chopped into tiny, tiny pieces, which saves you the hassle, and make it completely undetectable to any little one who refuses to eat enough fruit or vegetables.
This recipe is so easy to follow. We used a combination of green apple, zucchini and carrot but you can use play around depending on what you have been juicing. Some of our other favourites to use are red apples, pears, beetroot, broccoli, spinach or pineapple.
Makes 16 standard muffins!
Leftover Pulp Muffin Recipe | MOD Appliances
1 large ripe banana, mashed
2 free-range eggs, at room temperature
100ml canola oil
1 cup milk of choice, at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup (65g) raw sugar
1 packed cup juicer pulp
100g chopped dried fruit (dates, sultanas, cranberries etc)
1½ cups (180g) plain flour
1½ tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
1/3 cup (30g) rolled oats
Firstly, preheat your oven to 180ºC.
Using electric beaters or a stand mixer, beat together the banana, eggs, oil, milk, vanilla and sugar.
To the same bowl, add in your pulp from your MOD Cold Press Juicer and the chopped dried fruit and beat to combine.
Lastly, sift in flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and add in the oats.
Fold the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until just combined.
Grease a muffin pan, then fill with the batter and bake for 30 - 35 minutes, checking at 30 minutes. Bake until the muffins are golden and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Cool slightly in the pan before transferring onto a wire baking rack to cool completely
