View Full Version : Needed Crunchy Dehydrator Recipes
09-24-2006, 04:13 AM
I have a diabled toddler who will only eat crunchy textures. I just got a dehydrator and I was wondering if anyone can share some flax, fruit and veggie recipes that are either thin cracker or potatoe chip consistency. Also looking for a good raw granola bar type recipe. Nothing complicated, please! I am new at this:)....Thanks, Lin
I like nut bars but dont have a specific recipe as I just throw it all together.
1 cup flax soaked overnight in 1 cups water for 4hrs or more
1/4 cup chopped almonds (soak if you prefer)
1/4 cup chopped cashews
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup chopped pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 cup or more of raisons or any dried fruit should work
lots of honey to sweeten
celtic sea salt to your taste
dont over chop your nuts....blend all together and press onto teflex into dehydrator...flip after a couple of hours onto mesh sheet. These are kinda like raw Crunch bars.
i make buckwheat crackers/cookies for my 2 year old- and she loves them! they are super easy and make a great on-the-go snack instead of cheerios, etc.. all you do is take soaked buckwheat, grind it in a food processor until desired consistency (i like to leave mine a little "grainy") add in whatever you want for taste...then spread them on the dehydrator sheet (about 1/4 inch thick) and deydrate. i "score" mine into squares or rectangles about half way through. for taste, i usually add agave and cinnamon, but you could also go the non-sweet route and add basil, sun-dried tomatoes, etc....anything you think up...

I make some very crispy (and I think very yummy) cornchips:
4 cups of thawed-out frozen corn
1 tsp of sea salt
1 tsp of garlic powder (or you can use fresh garlic)
1 tsp of chili powder
(you can, of course, adjust all seasonings to taste or leave them out completely or add something you like that I didn't think of)
Blend it all up really well in a food processor until it's as smooth as you can get it. Spread it out on teflex sheets or parchment paper and dehydrate until as crispy as you'd like. I usually set dehydrator at 115 degrees. Time will vary depending on how thin you spread it, how accurate your dehydrator is, household humidity, etc. But give it at least overnight. I also turn them over at some point so that the other side gets crispy.

You can do dehydrated kale. Marinate the kale in some nama soyou and a bit of oil for an hour or so then dehdrate until crispy. I've also made crispy chips out of zuchini sliced moderately thin that way as well. You do have to dehydrate them for a while for them to go crispy though. You can also soak nuts then dehydrate them so they are crispy, similar to roasted nuts.

Also, Alissa's basic flax crackers are great.
And ... if this child likes onions, just slice a bunch really really thin and spread them out on the dehydrator sheet (just kinda dump them; you don't need to be neat) and they'll crunch up into onion clumps.
