I am experimenting with coming up with little healthy snacks to pop into my kid's lunches. You might enjoy this simple but surprisingly yummy apple treat.
A forewarning, they aren't the most beautiful cookie in the world but they are quite good. I made mine in a dehydrator but I think a very low oven would work just fine, too.
Following the exact method requires grinding up raw apples. I do this in my handy-dandy (and very much loved) Vita-Mix . Alternatively, I think you could cook the apples slightly and grind them up in a food processor (maybe even microwaving the apples pieces would be sufficient)...
Simply Yummy Apple Cookies
2 apples, cored
1 C. nuts (I used walnuts)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of mace
2 T. honey
all the ingredients in a blender (must be a high speed blender) or alternatively, cook the apples a little to soften them first and continue on. Grind the ingredients together until it produces a
smooth paste. Spread a scant 2 T. of the mixture onto a prepared sheet and smooth the mixture into a cookie shape. Dehydrate in dehydrator or low oven for approximately 10 hours, or until the
cookie holds its shape when removed from the sheet.
