Sweet Apple Macadamia Crisps

Apple Crisps with Raspberries & Strawberries

Previously I posted about some fantastic vege chips made from whole vegetable goodness squished and pressed into tasty snacks.  The recipe is ridiculously easy and CHEAP, if you have a juicer, it is a great way to use up your fruit & vegetable pulp. I don’t have a juicer but whiz everything in my fabulous Thermomix and then spread the mix in my dehydrator.

This recipe is a fruit based chip, great if you have a sweet tooth, but I manage to sneak in a few vegetables too! As well as the normal almonds & seeds, I like to add some macadamia nuts & coconut for a sweet crunch.

400g apples
300g zucchini
1 carrot
1 strip orange rind
50g water
50g almonds
50g macadamia nuts
10g coconut
1/2 cup linseeds, covered with 2 cm water and left to sit overnight OR
1/2 cup chia covered with 2cm water, left to sit for 20 minutes
20g sunflower seeds
1 tab psyllium powder
2 teas rapadura or stevia to taste
1/2 teas vanilla
pinch of salt
 
Grind on SP 8 the fruit/vegetables with the water until they are pureed.
Add the nuts and seeds and chop on SP 5 until they are fine but not powdered. Some texture in these crackers is much nicer. Add the coconut.
Pour off the top layer of water (if there is any) from the linseeds and add the linseed/gel to the mix and stir through until combined. SP 3

Spread onto some baking paper or teflex paper to about  5mm thick. Set into the dehydrator and dry for 6 hours on 60°C. You can turn them halfway to help drying but I don’t bother. They will naturally peel away from the baking paper when they are dry.
