I don't even remember where I got these recipes from, but I have tried several of them and have been happy with everything I tried. As you will see, they are mostly very health-oriented as well, with low sugar (except for dried fruit) for the most part. In addition, whether the recipe is for "dehydrator cookies" or whatever, they are generally fairly tough and survive well in a backpack. I did not create any of these recipes.
--------------------------------------------

Apple-Crisp Cookies
3 cups sweet, red apples, cored and finely chopped
1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 Tablespoon honey, optional

In a large bowl, combine apples, oatmeal, wheat germ and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, combine yogurt, applesauce and honey.
Pour yogurt mixture over apple oatmeal mixture; blend well.
Drop by tablespoon onto solid fruit roll sheets.
Place sheets on dehydrator trays.
Dry at 135F. for 5 hours or until cookies come off sheets easily.
Turn over and dry 1 hour more.




Apple Pie and Cheese Roll-Ups
4 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
3/4 cup pecans, ground
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

In a blender, puree all ingredients. Pour onto solid sheets; dry at 135F
for 4 to 8 hours, or until leathery.
Remove from sheets while still warm. Let cool.
Roll in plastic wrap and store in dark, dry, cool place or in freezer.




"Butterfinger" Bites
2 cups coconut
2 cups dried apples, peeled, cored and chopped
2/3 cup peanut butter
1-1/2 Tablespoons vanilla

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix well. Shape into 1/2" balls.
Dry at 135F. for 4 to 5 hours, or until firm and crisp on the outside.

Makes about 3 dozen.





"Chunky" Treats
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup wheat germ
3/4 cup dry milk powder
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried pineapple, chopped
1/2 cup carob chips
1 cup coconut

Cream together peanut butter and honey. Add wheat germ, dry milk powder and sesame seeds.
Mix well. Add raisins, pineapple and carob chips. Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in coconut.

Makes 2-1/2 dozen.



Apricot-Raisin Granola Bars
2 cups apricot-raisin granola
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
3 Tablespoons butter

In a small saucepan, heat brown sugar, peanut butter, and butter until melted.
Add water and mix well. Add granola and mix. Press into foil-lined 9-inch pan.
Refrigerate 1 hour. Cut into bars. Dry 6 to 10 hours at 145F. until chewy.
For faster drying, turn bars over after 4 hours. 






Augratin Potato Chips

3 cups potatoes, peeled, boiled and mashed
1-1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon salt

Put all ingredients in a blender and mix. Spread onto solid fruit roll sheets.
Place on dehydrator trays and dry for 4 hours. With a clean butter knife,
lift entire ring off sheet, turn over and dry for 1 hour longer, or until dry
enough to break into pieces.

You don't find yourself standing at the top of a mountain without having started out in the valley.
