This is also a very versatile recipe where you can use different types of pulp, dried fruit, nuts, or seeds (or even chocolate chips!) to suit your mood!
Step 1: Ingredients
Juicer pulp (see tips below)
1/3 cup ground flax
1 cup whole wheat flour
2-4 tbsp maple syrup, agave, or other sweetener (depending on how sweet you like your food)
1 large ripe banana (about 3/4 cup mashed)
2 tbsp nut or seed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins, dried cranberries, or other dried fruit
1/4 cup chopped nuts or seeds (optional)
1/2 cup fresh, frozen, or thawed berries (optional)
* If you don't have a juicer, you can grate carrots and other veggies to use in this recipe, but you'll want to omit the milk, and possibly include more flour/flax depending on how wet your veggies are.
* All different types of pulp can be used. This batch has carrot, ginger, cucumber, and rainbow chard (but I opted not to include the pulp from the parsley, cilantro, and celery since they have stronger flavors that I didn't want in my treats).
* You can also include fruit pulp, such as pineapple or apple, to make it sweeter and possibly not need the sweetener in the recipe.
* Some pulp is stringy (like my chard), so I used kitchen shears to snip it up a little.
* For the berries, you can use chopped strawberries, blueberries, or what I did -- a combination of blackberries and raspberries.
