I am forever on a quest to use the leftover pulp from juicing and I also love sneaking veggies into desserts! With this recipe – check and check! I’m always juicing carrots so I frequently have leftover carrot pulp. This 5 minute recipe is a great way to use the carrots and it’s so healthy you can eat it for breakfast!
No Bake Carrot Cake in a Cup
- Pulp of 4 carrots
- 1 cup walnuts
- 1/2 t cinnamon
- 1/2 t vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup light agave
1. Process walnuts until coarsely ground (I did this with the processing function of my juicer, but it can be done with a food processor as well).
2. Combine all ingredients.
3. Spoon into individual ramekins. You can eat this immediately but I prefer it refrigerated for a few hours so it firms up. Makes 2 ramekins.
Blueberry Stuffed Lemon Bites
These doughy bites are perfect for brunch. They are stuffed with blueberry jam and lightly sweetened by rolling them in a lemony sauce. Lastly, they’re topped with a tangy lemon glaze. Yum! Try playing around with the flavors in this recipe. Strawberry jam with lime or cranberry jam with orange would be good to try!
- 16 oz multigrain pizza dough (I used storebought dough from Publix)
- 1/2 cup Blueberry Jam (I used homemade but storebought would work)
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 2 T agave
- zest 1 lemon
- juice 1 lemon
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 T fresh lemon juice
1. Set dough on floured surface and let rise 15-20 min.
2. Preheat oven to 375.
3. Lightly grease an 8 in. deep, circular baking dish.
2. Combine oil, agave, lemon juice, and zest.
3. Grab two-inch hunks of dough so that you will end up with approximately 10 dough balls.
4. Flatten dough into a circle and spoon in 1-2 t of jam.
5. Fold dough around jam so that jam is enclosed on inside.
6. Dunk dough ball in lemon mixture and roll around so dough is completely covered/sopping in the mixure.
7. Place dough ball in baking dish.
8. Bake 25-30 min. until tops are golden.
9. Make lemon glaze by combining 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 T lemon juice. (Glaze recipe from Oh She Glows)
10. After cooling for a few minutes, I was able to transfer all of the balls from the dish to a cake stand but if transfer isn’t going to be easy/feasible for you then leave them in the baking dish.
11. Let balls slightly cool and then top with lemon glaze.
