Don’t throw away the pulp from your homemade green juice! Use it to make Green Juice Pulp Crackers! This healthy recipe is easy to make in either a dehydrator or the oven. These crackers are vegan and gluten-free.

I recently re-shared my favorite green juice recipe, so it’s time to share my green juice pulp crackers again, too!

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’ve dusted off my juicer and have been making fresh juices at home again lately. One of the problems that occurs when juicing at home is what to do all of the pulp that’s leftover afterward. Throwing it away is too wasteful. You can use it to make vegetable stock, and you can add it to smoothies for a little extra fiber. I’ve seen recipes for muffins and sauces that use leftover juice pulp, too. My favorite way to use green juice pulp is to make crackers.

This cracker recipe was inspired by my favorite raw bread recipe from Ani Phyo’s book Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen. A few years ago I was on a raw foods kick, and I made it all of the time. I don’t eat as much raw food these days, but still do make a few batches of it during the warm summer months. Ani’s bread is made with black sesame seeds and sunflower seeds, and she uses flax seeds as a binder.

I’ve taken Ani’s seedy bread idea and run with it. This recipe uses sesame and chia seeds, and ground flax seeds are used as a binder. I’ve added a little tamari and nutritional yeast for flavor, too.

These crackers are super easy to make!

  • First, you just mix all of the ingredients together in a food processor until they’re well-mixed. You’ll still have whole seeds, which is okay.
  • Then, you spread the mixture out to about 1/8-inch thick on a non-stick sheet. Use a flat spatula or the back of wooden spoon to get it even.
  • Next, you score the mixture to cracker shapes. A pizza cutter is an easy way to cut straight lines. I like to make mine about 2-inches square, but you can cut them to any size you like.

If you have a dehydrator, you’ll need to dehydrate your crackers for about 8 hours at 115°F. You can flip them and remove the non-stick sheet after a few hours.

If you don’t have a dehydrator, you can bake your crackers in a 350°F oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t burn.

These crackers make a great snack with raw cashew cheese or hummus, but they’re great on their own, too. You can also cut your mixture into larger slices and make raw “bread” or flatbreads.

Store your crackers in an air-tight container for up to 5 days. Crackers can also be frozen for up to a month.
