Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked organic red quinoa; cooked in 2 cups of water (quinoa is the seed of the Chenopodium or goosefoot plant)
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup organic chia seeds (I get mine from Costco)
  • 1 cup organic sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup Brazil nuts, hazelnuts or cashews or ½ cup of any two
  • 1 cup organic raisins or your favorite dried fruit of choice
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1-2 tbsp. of cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. almond or coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp. Stevia Blend Powder (Dr. LaMar’s Products)
  • ¾ cup Dr. LaMar’s Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce

I like to soak the nuts overnight and dehydrate them for 24 hours to make them more digestible, but it will work fine if you don’t. Place all the nuts in the food processor until your desired consistency. Add the cinnamon, Stevia Blend Powder and flour and pulse for a few seconds to mix. Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the seeds, cooked quinoa, applesauce, raisins and coconut oil. Mix well and spread on a cookie sheet or dehydrator tray. Bake slowly in the oven at 250˚F until crispy, stirring frequently and watching closely. If using a dehydrator, which I think is much easier, bake at 125˚F for 24-36 hours. This smells so good when it is dehydrating. I guarantee it will make your mouth water. I love to eat this with a glass of unsweetened almond milk of which I also get from Costco and it is excellent hot or cold!
