Today I'm going to piggy back on my last post. You see, I've been battling it out with a seasonal cold for the past two and a half weeks and my life has been so uneventful in that time that all I have to update you on is the fact that I tweaked Diane's Vegan Toast recipe. Nothing earth shattering.
Diane's recipe is very very good. ...but I found that my tummy doesn't like flax as much as I do....so I made some changes. Well, really just one change. Instead of flax I used hemp hearts.
EDIT: I have just been reminded that I also added psyllium husks. This is what will help bind the toast together, and gives it added fiber.
2 tbsp Psyllium Husks
4 apples (2 cups)
2 cups water
6 cups shredded coconut (you could use less)
3 tbsp cinnamon
6 tbsp agave/ honey
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
Blend all ingredients well in blender.
Spread 1/4" thick on 4 dehydrator trays.
Dehydrate 115 degrees 6-8 hours
Flip & dehydrate 1-2 hours
I have known for some time that hemp hearts are considered highly nutritional. That's why they were in my cupboard and available when I was looking for a substitution for the flax in this recipe. But I had forgotten all the details of why they are so good. So off I went into google land, and found this excerpt below from Livestrong.com:
