I have a new dehydrator and I’m a little dehydrating-mad! Before my dehydrator I was using a very low heat on my oven for the same period of time to see how I liked dehydrating foods (this works well too), and since I loved it, I decided it was time to purchase the dehydrator. You can make all sorts of healthy snacks such as activated nuts (I love them as I think they taste a lot nicer and you can taste the natural sweetness more easily), fruit roll ups for yourself and the kids, and dehydrated vegetable chips (recipe to come this week!) which is great when you have an abundance of produce from the garden.
My little son is 13 months and we have discovered that he doesn’t do well with eggs or dairy so I tried to make an egg-free buckwheat pancake and I couldn’t get it to stick together even with a flax egg so that’s why I decided to make a fruit-only dehydrated crepe, and it did the trick. It turned out to be a heavenly and divine treat and you would have no idea that the entire recipe is fruit, cashews and a little natural sweetener…enjoy! And if you don’t want to make the crepe, the cream and berries are excellent on their own!
