Tasty Thursday

With the raw food movement becoming stronger, featuring a recipe from Entertaining in the Raw by Matthew Kenney seemed like a great idea. Hope you enjoy this easy and delicious recipe!

Fortune Cookies
1 1/4 cups flax meal
3/4 cup chopped pear
1/2 cup young coconut meat
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup water

Blend all ingredients in a Vita-mix except water until smooth. Add water until batter is pasty but still thick. Spread into 3-inch circles on Teflex sheets and dehydrate 6–8 hours until firm but still pliable. Place a fortune note on top of each cookie with the end of note barely hanging over the edge. Carefully transfer to dehydrator trays and form into fortune cookie shapes, by folding in half, and then folding again to pull down pointed edges. Use paper clips to secure edges if needed. Dehydrate another 18–24 hours until crisp. 

Yields 2 dozen
