Crispy Lemon Lime Chia Cookies

Crispy Lemon Lime Chia Cookies
If you have a dehydrator, I don't really know of an easier recipe to make cookies than this one. I love lemon and lime in this recipe, but you could use other flavours too; maybe your favorite natural cordial instead of the citrus juice? :-) Also, these cookies are gluten free, sugar free, oil free, pretty much everything free, but still not made of dust :-)
Cuisine: vegan & raw
Recipe type: dehydrated
Serves: 20
Prep time: 
Cook/wait time: 
Total time: 
You need
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1 lime
  • zest of ½ lemon
  • zest of ½ lime
  • 2 pipettes (1/2 tsp) of liquid Vanilla Stevia (or plain Stevia)
  • top up water
  • optional: anything for decoration (I used pumpkin seeds, but red berries, like Goji berries, would look great!)
To do
  1. pour lemon and lime juice in a measuring cup. Top up with water to half a cup
  2. in a bowl, mix the juice/water with the zest, Stevia and seeds
  3. let sit for 20-30 minutes
  4. place about ½ to ¾ a table spoon of the mixture on your dehydrator sheet, that should make around 20 cookies (of course you can make them bigger or smaller)
  5. dehydrate till dry and crisp, about 4 hours (flip them over half way)

Raw Pulp Crackers of Carrot, Pumpkin, Nuts & Seeds

Raw Pulp Crackers of Carrot, Pumpkin, Nuts & Seeds
Do you love to make your own nut milk and regularly juice, and you're looking at all that beautiful pulp and wondering what to do with it? I use pulps in breads or in dog food, and my favorite; raw crackers. I do like to keep my daily crackers quite plain, so we can eat them with anything; we have them instead of bread.
If you want a more savoury cracker, just add the spices you fancy; curry, chilli, turmeric, etc.

This recipe makes about 3 trays.
Cuisine: vegan, raw
Recipe type: crackers, blender, juicer, food processor, dehydrated
Prep time: 
Cook/wait time: 
Total time: 
You need
  • 1¼ cup mixed nuts (f.e. hazelnuts, almond, walnut, pecan)
  • ¼ cup mixed seeds (f.e. sunflower, pumpkin)
  • 200gr carrot
  • 150gr pumpkin
  • 60gr red onion
  • about 5 gr of fresh ginger (or more if you like)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable stock powder (no salt, low salt or normal)
  • ½ cup flax seeds in ½ cup + a bit water
  • ½ cup chia seeds in 1 cup water
  • 2 cups of water
To do
  1. place flax seeds with their water in a bowl, and the chia seeds with their water in another bowl, let sit for 20 minutes
  2. in the meantime, make your nut milk and pop the dryish pulp in your food processor
  3. juice the carrots, pumpkin and ginger - drink this heavenly juice and throw the pulp in the food processor
  4. roughly chop the onion and add to processor - it's probably a good idea to run the machine at this point, with a cup of the water
  5. add in the other pulp and stock powder
  6. blend till well mixed, then spread out on your dehydrator sheets
  7. dehydrate at 45C for about 2-4 hours. If you do this in the evening, and you want to turn them over before you retire and the top is dry but the bottom side is still wet, then place another sheet or tray on top, flip over, and use a thin spatula (I use a cheese slicer) to detach the 'dough'. Don't worry, it works fine.
  8. then score them
  9. I am not that precise with time, I usually let them dehydrate overnight. Then break them in pieces and put them in a container once cooled down
Notes
I love raw crackers topped with avocado, fresh coriander, a tad of red onion or olives, some smoked kelp... you get the idea. However, peanut butter does the trick for me too :-)

Raw Buckwheat, Flax & Chia Seed Crackers

Raw Buckwheat, Flax & Chia Seed Crackers
Whenever I feel I've been eating bread while my body says 'Please don't', I like to eat raw crackers. Best to make them yourself as they tend to be quite pricey. These are pretty neutral, so you can have them with sweet or savoury toppings.
Prepared by:
Cuisine: raw vegan
Recipe type: crackers, food processor, dehydrator
Serves: 2 trays
Prep time: 
Cook/wait time: 
Total time: 
You need
  • 1 cup of raw buckwheat groats, soak for 15 minutes, sprout for a day
  • ½ cup of golden flax seeds, top up with water to 1 cup level
  • ½ cup of chia seeds, top up with water to 1 cup level
  • ½ cup dried tomatoes
  • 1 small zucchini
  • ½ tsp lemon pepper
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • ½ tsp Himalayan rock salt
  • about ½ cup of water
To do
  1. add all the ingredients except for the water to your food processor
  2. blend thoroughly, and add water as needed; you should end up with a doughy mass
  3. spread out over 2 dehydrator sheets, at about ½ cm thick
  4. dehydrate at 46C for about 12-14 hours, or until you like their texture. This batch I dehydrated till hard but they do retain a little bit of chew. You can score them half way, when you turn the lot over, or just cut or break them afterwards like I did.
Notes
You do need a powerful blender for this. If you don't have one, you could make the 'dough' in two batches.
