Zucchini Bread with Pulp

I really wanted to try this recipe as soon as I saw it! Off the juice, I made it last night. I saved some carrot pulp from one of the juices I made this week just so I could make it.

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. I put two small zucchinis in the food processor, with the skin still on. Mix the zucchini and pulp along with the wet ingredients in one bowl and the dry ingredients in another bowl. Whisk the ingredients in each bowl, then mix them together into one bowl with a hand mixer.

I don’t have parchment paper, so I greased and floured the pan. My bread was thicker than regular zucchini bread consistency, as I used almost 2 cups of zucchini and 2 cups of carrot pulp… I wanted to use it all up in one cake…

I toasted the bread in the toaster oven and it is definitely a filling breakfast. Definitely will be making again. Next time I may try an egg substitute, like bananas, just to see what it tastes like. I think I can improve on the taste as well…

  1. I love how simple it is to substitute butter with much better for you foods in baking. I have also found that these substitutes often make the finished product much more moist!
