Trail Mix Treat

1 cup Sunflower seeds

1/2 cup Coconut chips

1/2 cup Goji berries

1/2 cup Pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup Sesame seeds

3/4 cup Flax seeds

3/4 cup Chia seeds

2 tsp powdered green Stevia herb

2 tsp Cinnamon

 

Soak the sunflower & pumpkin seeds for 8 hours, drain.

Grind the flax seeds & sesame seeds (I use a chopping attachment for a hand blender, but you can also use a coffee grinder that’s never been used for coffee).

Soak the ground flax & whole chia seeds in 3 cups of water for 30 minutes.

Mix everything together.

Spread onto parchment paper lined dehydrator trays. Scoring the trail mix treat will help it dehydrate faster and make it easier to break it into squares.

Dehydrate for 2 hours at 155 degrees, then reduce temp to 110 degrees. Dehydrate for up to another 22 hours. Flipping the trail mix treat after the first 8-12 hours of dehydrating and removing the parchment paper will help it dry more thoroughly.
