The other day I made homemade carrot juice from a huge bag of fresh carrots. It was my first time using a vegetable juicer machine, so I was unprepared for the amount of carrot pulp that was in the fruit juicer machine. I knew that the process of turning carrots into carrot juice did not use the whole carrot and extracted the juice from the carrots but that was a lot of carrot scraps left. While most people just toss the carrot peels from the juicing machine, I am not one who likes to waste food. If you don't own a fruit and vegetable juicer, check out the juicer that I have. It is an amazing juicer at an amazing price.

What can I make with carrot pulp?

 So I enjoyed a cup of my DIY delicious sweet carrot juice and placed the rest in the fridge. Then I turned on my computer and search for recipes for carrot pulp. Carrot pulp is loaded with fiber and nutrition. What I found was the usual grated carrot recipes like carrot cake and carrot muffins but one recipe stood out to me. That recipe was Homemade Carrot Juice Pulp Waffles. While the name of the recipe did not sound appealing, the photo of the carrot waffles looked so delicious and I love waffles. My family loves waffles too and I knew that adding carrot pulp would make them a healthy breakfast option.

Carrot pulp is loaded with fiber and nutrients

While carrot juice is loaded with awesome nutrition, many people toss the carrot pulp after making the homemade carrot juice recipe. What they don't realize is that the carrot scrapes or carrot pulp contains plenty of healthy fiber and nutrients like vitamin A. So it is a healthy addition to many recipes like carrot cake, quick bread, veggie burgers, and waffles. I have discovered that adding carrot pulp to recipes gives the food a nice orange color but not the taste of carrots. These homemade waffles do not taste like carrots! So you can serve them to your kids and they will never know that you put healthy carrots in the waffles. Even my husband enjoyed the carrot waffles and he usually does not eat my healthy foods. My husband even asked me to make another batch of the carrot juice pulp waffles.

  1. I'll be honest, I don't think there would ever be carrot pulp in this house. But if there were, I would try these waffles. They do look tasty!

  2. I've never tried a waffle like this before! It's so unique and sounds absolutely delicious!!

  3. These sound amazing. I've never tried carrot waffles before. I can't wait to try them out.

  4. I would love to try these! Anything to sneak some veggie nutrition into the kids is a great idea to me!

  5. carrot waffles are my favorite! we have it quite often here. nice recipe

  6. These sounds awesome! I love that the carrots add so much nutritional value!

  7. This to me is a perfect breakfast, i love carrot juice and it is so healthy. Love it!!!!

  8. I love this kind of healthy snacks. I have never prepared waffles with carrot pulp, sounds so delicious! :)

  9. Does it matter what kind of flour I use

    1. I think white flour works the best but you could switch out half of the flour with wheat flour. If you have a waffle recipe that uses other flour, you can add the carrot pulp to that, just make sure to add extra water to get the texture of the batter like you are used to.

  10. Made this for brunch and it was DELICIOUS! I did modify a bit and added 1.5 cup pulp (since I have a LOT from juicing over 5lb) but they did beautifully in the waffle maker.

    One thing I'll remember for next time is that I ended up with 12 waffles! Could be the size of my waffle maker haha. So unless I'm expecting company I'll half the recipe in the future. This is definitely a keeper and one to experiment with other pulp as well (apple?? Yum!)

    Thank you SO MUCH for sharing!

    1. Glad you liked the recipe. More carrots sounds delicious. I will have to try that next time I make these.
