Healthy Apple Cider Bread

I have to admit, I was late in the juicing game. I would scour through Pinterest and find juicing recipe after juicing recipe and think…..I need to get me one of them there juicing machines! I just kept putting it off because I had other things I wanted to purchase….like a new iPhone….or video game….ahem.

Then I got engaged and came the time that every newly engaged couple dreams of…….the beloved wedding registry. Yes, yes, I’m aware weddings are for love and all shit, but I have been to so many wedding showers, I was ECSTATIC to finally get one of my own. I mean, what’s better than going to Crate and Barrel, asking for that gun deeley, and zapping all the cute/amazing kitchen gear I could dream of. First on the list? A juicer!

At first, I felt kinda bad for my husband after our wedding shower. There I was, basking in kitchen gadget utopia, and he hardly got any electronics/man stuff he registered for. Kieran’s got a great sense of humor, so I gave him the $50 gift card I had received as a gift, patted him on the butt, and said, “There there baby, you go get yourself something nice.” We both had a good laugh after that. Our wedding by the way was a riot. Our vows read like a stand up comedy routine. It’s not often you won’t find me and Kieran in hysterics at the silly shit we say to each other.


Anyway, there I was with my new juicer! I immediately looked up recipes that contained beets, celery, carrots, kale, and all that healthy jazz. I liked the recipes, but my husband wasn’t a big fan. He loved it when I made juice from grapefruit, oranges, apples, ect. The only veggie I can sneak into my husband’s juice is spinach, he doesn’t like the taste of any other veg in his juice. Don’t get me wrong, Kieran LOVES vegetables, and eats any cooked veggie I put in front of him, but he wants his morning juice and raw vegetables separate.

Anywho, we decided to make homemade hard apple cider (I’m documenting the entire thing to showcase when it’s done) last weekend. We ended up buying and needing to press 150 apples for the recipe, which in turn left us with a LOT of pulp.


I didn’t want to throw the delicious, usable, pulp away so I had to think what I could make it into. I’m not really a muffin girl……oh who am I kidding, I love muffins, I just don’t own a proper muffin pan, so I decided to make bread! I use brown sugar for this recipe. I imagine white sugar would make this bread a LOT sweeter, but since my husband doesn’t have a sweet tooth, the brown sugar gives it a hint of sweet without being overwhelming. So, if you like sweet bread, white sugar it up!

The bread was amazing. It was extra moist with just enough sweetness. So, if you are a big juicer, and you want to experiment with the pulp, there are sooo many recipes to find out there! I hope you give this one a try!
