Dehydrated Apple Chips
It's officially apple season here in Canada, and we're here for it! Not only are apples a delicious snack, they're a great source of fibre, antioxidants, vitamins & minerals. Apples also contain pectin which is a type of dietary fibre that acts as a prebiotic, important for feeding that good gut bacteria.
Dehydrating fruit while its fresh is a great way to lock in those nutrients, and allows you to enjoy it all year long!
What you need:
2-3 organic apples, washed and dried
1 tbsp Adapt powder
1 tsp raw coconut sugar (optional)
Tools: An apple corer, or a pairing knife, and a dehydrator
Once you've washed and cleaned your apples, you can core them and slice thin. (A pairing knife also works here) In a small mixing bowl, mix together Adapt powder and coconut sugar. Not only is Adapt going to add a little protein, it's calming and packed with warming spices like cinnamon & cardamom.
I like to lay the apples flat on the trays and sprinkle the powder mixture over top of the apples.
Set your dehydrator to 135 degrees F for 7-9 hours depending on how thick your slices are. I find the thinner the better! When your apples are done you should see no moisture remaining. If stores in an air tight container in a cool, dry place, your dehydrated apples should last up to 1 year!
