Cooking with carrot pulp

So I had some leftover carrot/apple pulp and wanted to try to make something with it. I used this recipe:

2/3 cup of vegetable oil
3/4 cup of honey - I used maple syrup
2 eggs - I used ener-g egg replacer
1-1 /2 cups of carrot pulp
1-1 /2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of sea salt (optional)

Mix the oil and honey together as well as you can, then add the eggs and mix again. Stir in the carrot pulp. Now add the remaining ingredients and mix well ... pour the resulting concoction into a greased loaf pan (measuring approximately 8-1/2" X 4-1/2" X 2-5/8") ... and bake in a pre-heated 350°F oven for 60 to 65 minutes.

-I greased the pan with vegan margarine, which I suspect was one problem - but the whole thing burnt. Was it just because of the margarine or did I do something else wrong? The inside tasted like it was cooking nicely and would have turned out great, had the outsides not burnt. Should I attempt this recipe again at another time w/o the margarine grease?

I'm currently trying this recipe but as a bread, not cookies.

3/4 cup of (carrot/avacado/lime/)juice mixture - original recipe calls for water
1 cup of carrot pulp
2/3 cup of vegetable oil
2/3 cup of honey - again, I used maple syrup
1 egg - again, egg replacer
2 cups of whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/ 2 teaspoon of sea salt (optional) - normal salt

Add the juice mixture to the carrot pulp in a small saucepan and cook over a very low heat for 10 minutes, stirring often to keep the pulp from scorching. Meanwhile, beat the oil and honey together in a bowl, then beat in the egg. Stir in the cooked carrot pulp, the flour, the baking powder, and—if you wish-the sea salt.

I greased the pan with OIL this time, and it still burnt. If it makes a difference, I'm using a glass bread-pan and it's the first time I cooked anything in my oven. Advices?
