Preparation

  1. Put the flaxseed meal, cinnamon, cardamom, salt, cacao nibs and orange zest in a large bowl.  Set aside.
  2. In a food processor, process the walnuts, ginger and apple until you get a nice mash.
  3. Add this mixture to the flaxseed meal mixture and add the remaining (wet) ingredients.
  4. Using a big spoon or your hands, mix until thoroughly combined.  This is a fairly wet mess.
  5. Line a dehydrator tray with a non-stick sheet and plop the dough into the center, top with another non-stick sheet and slowly roll out the dough.  I had to move dough from time to time from one spot to another to get something that resembled a square.  The dough should be about 1/4″ thick.
  6. Remove that top non-stick sheet, gently score the dough into whatever size and shape strike your fancy and slide the tray with the dough into the dehydrator.
  7. Dehydrate at 145F for 30 minutes, then turn down the temperature to 115F.
  8. After a few hours of drying, I carefully transfer the dough to a screen for more efficient drying.
  9. Dehydrate for about 24 hours or until crispy and crunchy.
  10. Break into pieces and store in an air-tight container.
