Today I have a special someone doing a guest post for me! (drumroll please…) Introducing Heather Pace! She has a lovely blog called Sweetly Raw and it’s full of lots of healthy treats that gets me drooling on the keyboard. Since my last post was about almond milk I wanted her to give us a yummy recipe that includes almond pulp. Check out her site to see more of her recipes that include almond pulp…like her chocolate chip cookies, tart cups, and granola!
Hello, I’m Heather Pace from Sweetly Raw and I’m really excited to share a recipe today on Charissa’s blog. Using up almond pulp is the name of the game here. I’ve created a few tasty dehydrated treats which are healthy alternatives to store bought cereals and cookies. If you’re in search of more healthy recipes, pop over to my site Sweetly Raw. You’ll find out how to make cheesecakes, cookies, ice cream, drinks, and chocolate – all using all natural ingredients. Have your cake and eat it too! Cheers!
Crunchy Oaty Cereal
I’ve made this cereal multiple times over the past two years. It reminds me of some kind of boxed crunchy oat cereal and I think it’s scrummalicious! If you want squares, spread it out thin on your teflex sheets and score into the size you want. If you want little clusters, add an extra 1/2 cup dry coconut and simply sprinkle bits onto the teflex sheets.
Crunchy Oaty Cereal
- 1 cup packed almond pulp
- 3/4 cup dried shredded coconut
- 2/3 cup oat flour
- 1/3 – 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon Himalayan salt
Mix all ingredients together.
Spread out on teflex sheets and dehydrate at 145F for 2 hours.
Turn the temperature down to 115F and continue to dry for 8-10 hours (or until dry and crunchy), flipping onto the mesh screen halfway through.
Note from Charissa: If you don’t have a dehydrator, feel free to use your oven with low heat. I know of lots of people who can’t afford a dehydrator yet, and they use this method and it works just fine!
If you want little clusters, add an extra 1/2 cup dry coconut and simply sprinkle bits onto the teflex sheets.
I’m so thankful that Heather could write this post for me this week…we’ve had a family emergency just happen. My 13 year old niece has been sent to a children’s hospital because her brain is hemorrhaging and most of her arteries are inflamed. The doctors just don’t know what is causing this. It’s a trying time for the family as we wait to find out what’s wrong. My Mom, sister, and I headed up to my brother’s place to help out their family (they have 9 children) during this critical time. With my marathon coming up next week, helping out my brother’s family here, and a concert we sing at this weekend I just don’t have a lot of extra time for blogging. I’m just so grateful that God is with us and that He is in control.
