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)
