Pretty In Pink Summer Fruit Oat Crackers
♪"Isn't sheeeeeeeee, pretty in piiiiiiink."♪
If images of Molly Ringwald and the "Brat Pack" are going through your head right now as The Psychedelic Furs plays in the background, you're welcome. I will never apologize for awesome 80's references. =) The pic above is my Pretty in Pink Cracker with homemade Cultured Coconut Yogurt. It looked like it had hair so of course I had to give it a face! Kind of looks like Steff Mckee, huh? On a related note, These easy crackers are as delicious as they are pretty with their delicately sweet flavor and pale pinkish-purple hue.
Made with just four simple ingredients and dehydrated at a low temperature, this recipe keeps the benefits of the seasonal fruits intact while the oats provide you with fiber and can help lower cholesterol and stabilize blood glucose levels.
Made with a small amount of natural agave to complement the natural sweetness of the fruit (you can omit it if you want) this is a great snack for kids as it's refined sugar-free. But P.S. Adults love them too. They're delicious on their own or can be used with a dip. Read on below for the simple recipe.
1 cup rolled or gluten-free oats
1 sliced peach
1/2 cup fresh pitted cherries
2 T agave nectar (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a food processor, blend until smooth. Stop and scrape the sides if necessary.
Spread it in a thin layer on parchment paper on a dehydrator sheet.
Dehydrate at 105 degrees for about 30 minutes, then gently score with a butter knife (you can also wait until they're done and carefully break them apart.
Continue dehydrating on 105 degrees F for five hours.
Break apart the crackers, flip them over, and dehydrate about another 9 hours, or until they are a dry cracker consistency. I let mine dehydrate for almost a full 24 hours in total, I wanted them more on the crunchy side.
*Note: Trying to score the crackers right after you spread them on the dehydrator is darn near impossible. Wait a bit for them to start to dehydrate before trying to score, as per Step 3 of the instructions.
