Food waste accounts for 8% of carbon emissions according to a UN study*. I’m always seeking to reduce my food waste, from being savvy when buying veg to making use of leftovers and making stock from scraps. I do however like to make juice at home, which produces a not unreasonable amount of pulp that usually gets thrown into the compost. I’ve previously used carrot or fruit pulp in my porridge, so thought I would give carrot pulp granola a go. If you don’t have a juicer, just use grated carrot. As you’ll get more grated carrot than pulp, try using just one carrot.
This recipe produces around 300g, so if you double up to make a larger batch, use another baking sheet so as not to crowd the granola from toasting up.
If you make this carrot pulp granola, don’t forget to tag me in any posts that you share!
