Fruit Recipes For a Food Dehydrator

Fruit Recipes

#1.  Granola Bars

5 cups toasted granola

1 cup instant powdered milk

1/2 cup wheat germ

1/2 bran

1/2 flour (whole wheat)

1/2 cup orange juice

1 cup honey

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup olive oil

1/2 cup raisins (optional)

 

*Notes:  First you’ll want to find a large sauce pan, this is where you’ll be doing all of your mixing at.  You have to first warm the oil up with the peanut butter and honey in your pan on a low heat.  Then dump all of your remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly.  If needed you can add more water to make the ingredients stick together better.  You’ll want to add a little extra water if you decided to add in the raisins.  The mixture should be firm but sticky.  Cover a dehydrator tray with wax paper and roll the mix out on top of it.

Dry the mixture overnight, resting on the wax paper.

Then turn the mixture over onto the tray so the other side faces up but still on top of waxed paper.  Then put tray with hardened mixture into the food dehydrator for 3-6 hours.  After 3-6 hours pull the tray with the hardened fruit and granola mixture out and cut into squares or bars.

Then place back into the dehydrator for another 6-7 hours until completely dried.  Fills about 2 trays.
