Crunchy Nut Seed Fruit Combo Bites or Bars

This recipe is a favourite and can resemble a crunchy nut and seed fruit bar or equivalent bite sized snack. When I make the bars, I tend to spread the ingredients into a thickness similar to a museli bar but when I like to make smaller bite sized pieces, I spread the ingredients further to make a thinner layer (aproximately 1.5cm thick) . You can also crumble the pieces to transform it to resemble an alternative to muesli or used as a topping with stewed apples for an apple strudel served with sour cream. One bite leaves you coming back for more.

Flax seeds are rich in the omega-3 fatty acid ALA, lignans and fiber, all of which have been shown to have many potential health benefits. They can be used to improve digestive health, lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol, reduce the risk of cancer and may benefit people with diabetes. The good source of fiber produced by flax seeds, aid in digestion and prevent constipation. Flaxseeds contain some other nutrients as well as protein, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, omega 3 and lignin. Regular consumption of flax seeds are known to be good for your skin. Flaxseeds also prevent cancer and facilitate weight-loss.

Flax seeds are not recommended on the introduction stages or for people who experience diarrhoea.

Instructions
  1. You may wish to lightly grind some of the nuts to break them up a little but they can be left as they are
  2. Soak all seeds and nuts overnight and rinse them under filtered water in a sieve
  3. Combine and mix all ingredients with your hands or a big spoon in a bowl
  4. The flax seed may need a little more draining in a sieve before you add them to the remaining of the ingredients. These will work as a binding agent to keep all your ingredients together.
  5. When all is combined simply spread the ingredients on a dehydrator sheet (1 cm thick) and Dry at 135 degrees F or 57 ◦C for 20-24 hrs
  6. You may dehydrate for longer if you want a crispier result or intend to make thicker nut/seed bars
  7. When completed, simply break into bite size snacks or cut specific portions with a knife. You may also wish to break it up further to make a muesli mix for breakfast with your yoghurt.
  8. You can explore any nut fruit and seed combo that you desire. Enjoy!
