A SATISFYING BREAKFAST treat that combines the sweetness of berries with the
heartiness of nuts.
2 cups raw almonds
1 cup raw walnuts
% cup flax seeds
2 cups fresh strawberries, raspberries, and/or blueberries
1 cup raisins
Using a food processor, grind the almonds and walnuts coarsely, and then transfer
the nuts to a large mixing bowl. Powder the flax seeds in a high-speed blender (or
spice or coffee grinder) and place in a small bowl. Liquefy the fresh berries in a
blender, then add the flax powder to the blended berries and blend again. Add the
resulting berry mixture to the ground nuts, along with the raisins, and mix well
with a wooden spoon.
Spread the mixture evenly on a Teflex-lined dehydrator tray to a thickness of
approximately 1 inch. Dehydrate at 100°F for 12 hours. Flip the tray over onto a
work surface and gently peel the Teflex sheet off of the berry and nut mixture.
Return the mixture to the dehydrator for another 12 hours. Once dehydrated, cut
into 18 equal pieces (make 2 cuts horizontally, and 5 cuts vertically).
