Leftover Juice Pulp Granola

I love making fresh juice, but the question that always comes up is what the heck do I do with the juice pulp? I have cooked the (vegetable) pulp into soups, added it into cookies and crackers, and (when lazy) simply composted the pulp,  but I wanted to try and create something new!

As I had posted a few weeks ago, my cousin and I went on a juicing spree for her and her family during the week, and I ended up saving all of the pulp from the three juices we made. My Favorite Sweet Berry Juice had pulp that contained 100% fruit, so I decided to play around with that and create something sweet, hence this recipe.

This Leftover Juice Pulp Granola is sweetened with nothin but fruit, is refined-sugar free, raw, gluten-free, oil-free and low in fat! I was really surprised by the end result, and pleased with the taste of the granola. My favorite thing about this granola is that it is buttery (for lack of a better term). I really have no idea how or why that is, but I’m 100% okay with that 😉

The ingredients of this recipe are pretty simple, and all of the ingredients are good for you: Medjool dates, oats, mulberries, unsweetened coconut and juice pulp, that’s it! I made this in a dehydrator, but don’t worry, I gave the option of using an oven in the recipe below, too.

Leftover Juice Pulp Granola

  • Author: Jasmine @ Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 8 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6


  • 10 medjool dates
  • 1 cup raw oats
  • 1/3 cup mulberries
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 1/2 cup sweet juice pulp (from this juice)


  1. Add the medjool dates, juice pulp, and coconut into a food processor or blender and run until everything is well combined and as smooth as you can get it.
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients and pulse until slightly broken down and uniform throughout.


  1. Place into a dehydrator in a thin layer at 115 overnight, or about 8-10 hours, until dry and crumbly. Be sure you stir the granola halfway through.


  1. Preheat oven to the lowest temperature you can get it.
  2. Place the granola in a thin layer on a parchment lined baking sheet and into the oven.
  3. Grab a wooden spoon/serving utensil. Keep the oven door cracked open with the wooden spoon so the moisture can circulate out.
  4. Allow it to dry for 8-10 hours, or until dry and crumbly. Be sure you stir the granola halfway through.


  • The flavor of this granola will vary based on the ingredients of the juice pulp you are using.
