Meatless Monday has returned! :-)
Today we're cooking with oats.
Peanut Butter Carrot Crackers
4 medium carrots
1 cup oats
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon each: nutmeg, cardamom, allspice
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup raisins
Using a food processor, shred the carrots. Add the oats, flax, and spices. Blend til oats are broken down and not chunky pieces remain.
Add the peanut butter and water. Blend til a thick paste is formed. The mixture will be very sticky.
Add the raisins and blend for a few seconds until they are distributed evenly but not broken into pieces.
Use a spatula to spread the mixture onto lined dehydrator sheets. Number of sheets will depend on the size of your dehydrator, I used three sheets.
Dehydrate for 10-12 hours.
Slice with a pizza cutter!
Store in a cookie jar. Will keep for a week. They will get crispier the longer they are stored.
I am also submitting this recipe to I am Vegetarian - Hear me Raw.
Question of the day:
Do you own a dehydrator?
Do you use it for more than just fruit and vegetables?
