With NO grains. My daughter loves the usual type raw cookies but they are always a bit chewy. I would like some myself but have always liked real CRUNCH in my buscuits! Any suggestions? :rolleyes:

They just came out of the dehydrator...yummy and crunchy...but alas, I don't have a pic. I can't seem to get the photo reduced to be acceptable. But trust me, they're good....
1 apple in vita mix until smooth with
1 tbls crushed ginger
zest only of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp vanilla
In bowl, add the following;
1/2 cup sweetner of choice....agave, honey, maple syrup (I used 1/2 honey and agave)
1 1/2 c soaked sunflower seeds
1 1/2 c sesame seeds
1 c coarsely chopped pecans (any nut will do)
1/4 cup finely ground golden flax
I added 1/2 c sprouted quinoa, but you can eliminate if you want no grains
Stir the mixture to distribute and then add the contents of the vita mix. Mix
very thoroughly and spread 1/4" thick on a teflex sheet. This quantity will coat an entire sheet. Dehydrate until firm enough to score through with a knife for easy breaking after dry. They're very good half-dry, but you can dry until very crisp....they're almost like candy in crispness.
My husband crumbled some on his muesli this morning for extra texture.

Last night I made some prune cookies and placed a walnut on top before dehydrating. That added walnut or even chunks of walnuts in the batter, sure added some crunch.
Oh, what I did:
2 cups of prunes (soaked with little water all afternoon)
1 cup of walnuts
1 cup of cocoanut
I mixed all in food processor, even used most of the soaking water, so it would mix, then added the walnut on top.
next time my thoughts are to mix prunes and cocoanut, after that is mixed, add chopped nuts.
By the way, I do prunes for my kiddos to help with their elimanation as they still manage to get too much SAD .
Hope you find a answer. I was pleasantly surprised how crunchy the larger chunks of walnuts were in the otherwise chewy cookie. So you could try this idea in any receipe you like.

I stumbled on your recipe while doing a search for "quinoa" since I had sprouted some and didn't quite know what to do with them. These cookies are AWESOME :p Thanks so much ~ mmmmwah~ (smooch).... I've got them in the dehydrator right now, just turned and cut them about an hour ago and snatched a few pieces -eeehhh weeee :D I love the way the flavors of the apple, lemon and ginger blend together. These will definitely become a staple in our home!! Thank you , thank you, thank you!!
