No-waste breakfast: fresh juice & (healthy) cookies

April 23, 2011

Fruit’s a great way to start the day, maybe even using a juice extractor. I’m usually a zombie in the mornings – I get up and point myself towards the office and I usually only surface around lunch time! At least on the weekend I don’t have to rush and I really enjoy taking my time with breakfast and preparing something healthy and delicious.

So, if you’ve got a little energy and half an hour to spare, you can make these cookies with the pulp leftover from the juice extractor. They’re great with a cup of freshly-brewed coffee!

Let’s get started: firstly, using your juice extractor, make enough juice for two people with apple, pear, carrot, orange, tangerine etc – it’s up to you. Drink your nice, fresh juice and set aside the pulp from the juice extractor. Remove the apple and pear pips (maybe you could plant them in the garden?), add all the carrot pulp, and instead set aside the orange or citrus fruit pulp to use separately.   You can always freeze the pulp if you don’t have time to make the cookies immediately.

 

Ingredients for approx. 10 cookies

Fruit pulp from 2 freshly-extracted juices

200 g of cake flour

1 egg

1/2 a sachet of baking yeast

50 g of raw, brown sugar

100 g of soy/rice/almond milk

80 g of vegetable shortening

Directions

Mix all the ingredients together until you have a smooth dough. If it’s still too dry, add a little milk. Using a cookie cutter, divide into 10, or simply use your hands to make 10 cookies. Bake in a 180° C oven for about twenty minutes. Check the baking with a fork or toothpick. Remove from the oven, pour the fresh coffee and enjoy your breakfast!

    Really great post. I juice several times a week, and although i compost my fruit and vegetable pulp, i still feel a little guilty not making better use of it. I need to start experimenting. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Spot on with this write-up, I honestly feel this web site needs far more attention. I’ll probably be returning to see more, thanks for the advice!
