Cinnamon Apple 'Toast' [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Raw Vegan Vegan


24 pieces


  • 1 cup walnuts, soaked overnight
  • 5 dates, soaked for ~15 minutes
  • 1 apple, cored
  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled and cut into small pieces (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 1/2 of a banana
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom
  • pinch salt, optional
  • 1 cup  flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 cup flaxseeds
  • 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup raw hulled hemp seeds


  1. In a food processor, process the walnuts through the salt until nearly smooth.  You’ll need to scrape down the bowl of the processor a few times.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flaxseed meal, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, and hemp seeds.  Pour in the walnut mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.  Spread the mixture onto a Teflex dehydrator sheet to just a hair under 1/2″ thick and neaten up the edges.  Gently score the dough into desired shapes.  Place in the dehydrator and dehydrate at 145F for 30 minutes, then turn down the temperature to 115F and continue to dehydrate the “toast” until is dry and very crispy, about 20-24 hours.
  3. Tip: about 2 hours in, I carefully flip the “toast” by placing a mesh sheet + dehydrator tray on top of it, and then I gently remove the Teflex sheet.  This speeds up the dehydrating process.
  4. Break the “toast” into pieces and store in an air-tight container.  To serve, top with fruit-sweetened jam, natural almond or peanut butter – or your favorite toast toppings.
  5. For crackers, spread the batter to about 1/4″ – you’ll need two trays and the drying time will be less.





I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.

This recipe sounds yummy and I\'d love to try it but there seems to be a step missing in the method. It doesn\'t say anywhere what needs to happen with the apple, sweet potato, apple juice, banana, cinnamon or cardamon. Can you please amend this so I can try it out. Thanks!

If you have a convection oven, the low/keep warm setting is pretty low.
