Dehydrator Diaries 8/24 - Millions of peaches

Remember that song? I do...
Anywhoo, peaches are definitely in season and I decided to put them to good use this week with some dehydrated munchies. Like I've said before...we like to do a big batch of raw snacks about once a week. With the travel to WA and my tendency to eat raw fresh fruit all day long when it's HOT, this is the first time we've fired up our D in a month!
First up was this:
Peaches-n-Cream Grawnola going into the D
I know it doesn't look like much, but it was ridiculously good and lasted all of 3 days in the house, which might explain why I didn't ever get a good picture of it. It's my basic granola recipe with peaches as the main sweetener and cashews instead of pecans and almonds. The cashews give it the "creamier" taste/texture. Is it ok to describe granola as creamy? Ha!
Here you see:
- Peach-flax roll ups
- Peach buckwheat cereal
We often pour a bit of our green smoothies onto parchment paper and dehydrate it to make an easy portable snack - Green Smoothie Roll-ups. This week we made peach-flax roll ups. Just blend the fresh peaches with 1/2 cup of flax (soaked at least 2 hours with 1/2 cup of water) and dehydrate them for 7-10 hours at 115. Then just roll em up and store them i a ziploc bag. These were good, but I prefer the pure fruit/veggie roll ups. Adding the flax gave them more of a crackery-crunch.
This is just our regular buckwheat cereal recipe (from Raw Food/Real World) but I substituted half of the agave for pureed fresh peaches. It was subtly peachy, but a fun variation on our cereal.
My counters are overflowing with summer squash...so I think that might be the snack theme next week.
