I know people make crackers out of the pulp left over from juicing - any recipes out there for that or other ideas?

I make raw carrot cake with my carrot pulp. This is a good carrot cake recipe to start with:

Awesome! I will try the carrot cake - and I like how the frosting has pineapple pulp in it :) Hadn't thought of juicing pineapple yet!
I just can't stand to throw any pulp away. It seems like such a waste...
I made crackers last night - well, one sheet came out like crackers, the other like pizza bread maybe. It was thicker and I didn't realize it when I put them in.

I sometimes throw stuff like greens, celery and carrots into a cracker or bread recipe.

I finally made your carrot cake recipe!
I had drank all the carrot juice :o so instead I used really ripe persimmons (almost 2) to get a blendable consistency.
Also, I decided to shape them into little patties and frost them. I thought that might be a bit easier for me to pack around. I dehydrated them for a couple hours to firm up - and they are great!
Thank you so much!
I'm halfway through my day of juice feasting, and my feet are sooooo cold!!! I am feeling light and clear, though, which is great. I'm sure my skin will be thrilled to have as many cucumbers as I'm having too...
Gotta share this tip... I haven't tried extended juice feasts/fasts yet, so typically I'll just juice for a day. I really hate to waste the pulp!
So, I've been making tacos with my pulp! In the mornings on days I know I'll be juicing, I just start soaking some flax first thing. Once I have a couple rounds worth of pulp from juicing, I just dump it in with the soaked flax seeds, add some salt and pepper to the bowl, mix, and voila! It's what I've been using to make tacos. Oh, yeah, and I add some frozen corn...
So, the fiber in the pulp is great for holding it all together. I put it on saran wrap (no teflex here just yet) on the dehydrator tray, about 1/4 inch thick. Then let it dehydrate at 115 for about 6-8 hours, peel off the saran wrap. Then after another few hours, the shells are almost crunchy but not breakable, and they're really easy to mold. I split the tray into four by cutting up the middle of the top and the sides. I do that with three of the four trays, remove two of the trays, and stand the shaped tacos in the dehydrator so they can finish turning into taco shells in another 4-10 hours. This gives them the room to stand up. The bottom row, I don't make into taco shells. Instead, I cut them into triangles so I can make mini pizza chips.
Then when I'm ready to eat them, I dice up some onions, red peppers, green peppers and/or tomatoes, shred some greens, and have it with some sort of pate. I've gotten a little "lazy" about the pates. I don't even follow recipes anymore. I just put some lemon juice with some sort of nut, some parsley/cilantro/basil/something like that, something crunchy like celery, shredded carrots or cucumber even, with some onion and salt, maybe pepper. If I need to, I add some olive oil or water. It works fine, I just toss it into the VitaMix and pulse or put it in the food processor if I'm feeling like cleaning lots of parts.
So, I put the pate as the meat on the bottom of the taco, some shredded lettuce, the diced veggies, and I think I'm going to try using a cheese next time too. It's perfect because I'll juice fast one day, then start with a green smoothie the next morn to ease back in. By lunch, I'm ready for something nice and solid. And boom, I have these taco shells that are super flavorful and were easy to make.
It's also helping me to stay on the juice, since I know that tomorrow I have some treats planned!

Tacos! Great idea! I'll be doing that with my next batch :)
Yesterday, I was explaining to a friend about how I make crackerbread with the juicer pulp, and she had a queer look on her face and said, "so your crackers are really fruity?" and I laughed and said, no I make vegetable juice, so it is vegetable pulp, and she looked even more confused! (Juice from vegetables?? who's ever heard of that??)

Oooh I love that pineapple frosting for that carrot cake. It was the first time I had juiced pineapple and I was AMAZED at the difference between store bought pineapple juice and fresh pineapple juice. It was so good!
