Introducing pulp crackers – a fiber treat that’s easy to make and can be customized to suit your preferences. As someone who loves cooking, I’m excited to share this recipe with you and guide you through the process of creating these crackers in your kitchen.

The Advantages of Opting for Pulp Crackers as a Healthy Snack Choice

Before we jump into the details, let’s discuss why pulp crackers make an addition to your snacking repertoire. When you extract juice from fruits and vegetables or prepare nut milk, there’s typically leftover pulp that is discarded. However, this pulp is packed with nutrients such as fiber, vitamins and minerals. By repurposing this pulp into crackers, not only do you reduce food waste, but you also craft a snack that is rich in nutrients and is truly satisfying. Here is what you will need to make pulp crackers.


2 cups of pulp (, from juicing or making nut milk)
1/2 cup of ground flax seeds
1/4 cup of chia seeds
1/4 cup of seeds
1 tsp of salt
A tsp of powder
1 tsp of onion powder
1/2 tsp of paprika
1/4 cup of water (if needed)

Feel free to experiment with various spices and herbs to create your own special flavor blend. Consider adding rosemary, thyme, cumin or a dash of cayenne pepper for some kick.

Step by step Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Mix together the pulp, ground flax seeds, chia seeds, sesame seeds, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika in a mixing bowl until well combined.
  3. If the mixture seems dry and crumbly, gradually add water (one tablespoon at a time) until the dough holds together easily.
  4. Place the dough on the baking sheet. Use your hands or a rolling pin to flatten it into an even layer about 1/8 inch thick.
  5. Cut the dough into desired shapes using a knife or pizza cutter for the crackers, such as squares, rectangles or triangles.

Bake the crackers in an oven for 30-35 minutes until they are golden brown and crispy. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.

Once done, remove the crackers from the oven. Let them cool completely on the baking sheet. They will continue to crisp up as they cool down.

Break along the scored lines to separate the crackers and store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

Preparation Time and Cooking Duration

Preparing these pulp crackers is quick taking 10-15 minutes to mix ingredients and shape the dough. The cooking time typically falls between 30-35 minutes; however, keep a watch during the 5-10 minutes of baking to avoid over browning.

Serving Suggestions and Variations

Enjoy pulp crackers in a variety of ways for a versatile and delightful snacking experience.

Pair them with dips like hummus, guacamole or baba ganoush. They also complement cheese boards nicely as an alternative to crackers.

You can also consider adding a hint of honey or maple syrup to the dough and sprinkling cinnamon on top of the crackers before baking.

These delicious pulp crackers pair beautifully with nut butter or fresh fruit spreads.

If you have dietary requirements, you can easily adjust this recipe to suit them. To make them gluten-free, use pulp from gluten-free sources. For a nut-free option, swap nuts for fruit and vegetable pulp instead.

Pulp crackers change the snacking game by utilizing pulp that is often wasted. You can create a snack that benefits both you and the planet with this recipe. Experiment with flavors. Customize your crackers to suit your taste preferences.

Next time you find yourself with leftover pulp from juicing or making nut milk, don’t discard it – turn it into a batch of pulp crackers instead. Your taste buds and well-being will thank you!
