Hilariously unsuccessful carrot/almond crackers.

Carrot pulp (the juice was delicious!)

Almond pulp (the mylk was also delicious!)

The dehydrator sheet of "dough"

The terribly hard, cardboard flavoured "dog biscuits" I made, lolol!


Seriously, they are inedible by humans. Our friend's puppy loves them though, ha ha. Perfect for pooches.

Coco, I wonder why recipes don't just recommend grated carrot rather than the pulp? I think it's yucky to just use the fiber like that--always have. For one thing, there is no flavor or moisture left from the carrots!

Well, since you're dehydrating it you sort of want less moisture. It would take longer to do it with shredded carrot I think. Might end up nicer though, who knows. I am not so much of a recipe follower. Maybe that explains my "success" lol.

was it just the carrot pulp and almond pulp or did you add other ingredients? flax or a some binder? I would think just adding a little sprouted grain or fruit for some pliability might help. For me, manna bread is hit or miss. If I overdry it, it's only fit for pooch or compost. I tend to make mine a little thicker when it's bread than crackers so I can try to get that dry outside and moist inside.

I dried them super dry. They have softened up a bit even though they were stored airtight in a glass jar but they are still horribly inedible. Taste like cardboard, I mean they really taste like actual cardboard, lol. I added some flavourings and I think a bit of ground flax too. I'll have to follow a recipe next time, there are a couple in Russel James's cook book that look tasty.
