What You'll Need
  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts (soaked for 4 hours & drained)
  • 1 1/2 cups cashews (soaked for 4 hours & drained)
  • 1 1/2 almonds (soaked for 4 hours & drained)
  • 1 1/2 raw sunflower (soaked for 2 hours & drained)
  • 3/4 cup oat flour (grind oats in blender until fine powder)
  • 2 tablespoons tbsp ground flax seed (grind in a coffee grinder)
  • 3/4 cup dried unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup cranberries or raisins
  • 2 medium granny smith apples, cored and chopped
  • 10 large medjool dates, pitted (soaked in hot water for 30 min)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1/2 cup agave OR 100% REAL maple syrup (not pancake syrup)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  1. Pulse soaked nuts in food processor until chopped. Place nuts in a large mixing bowl. Add ground oats & flaxseeds to the bowl and combine with the processed nuts and seeds. Stir in coconut and cranberries (or raisins).
  2. Without cleaning the food processor, add chopped apples, soaked dates, lemon juice, coconut oil, tahini, agave (or REAL maple syrup), vanilla, cinnamon and salt and process until smooth.
  3. Pour mixture into the bowl and stir into the nut mixture until thoroughly combined. Spread out onto 2 or 3 Teflex sheets and dehydrate for 8 to 12 hours at 115 degrees F. Flip over onto mesh tray, remove Teflex sheets and dehydrate for another 8 to 12 hours or until dry and crisp. Remove from dehydrator and let cool.
  4. When cool, break up into small pieces and store until needed in an air tight container. Refrigerated, it will last for a few weeks.

*How to soak nuts & seeds: Fill your container (I use glass mason jars) with the nuts or seeds and add water to cover the them. Make sure water is about 1-2 inches above the nuts or seeds. Close lid & allow time to soak. Drain nuts or seeds in a colander or sieve.
