Organically grown raw and living foods provides us with the vital and essential nutrients that we need to stay healthy – and are rich in phytonutrients, enzymes, and antioxidants. When you cook your food, you lose 50 percent of the protein. It becomes coagulated and you lose 78 percent of the vitamins and minerals. If you go live, you can eat half as much and still get the same amount of nutrients!
Dehydrating these Apple Raisin Flax Wraps at 115 degrees Fahrenheit (46 degrees Celsius) will help keep all nutrients and other goodies intact. Try it for yourself and let us know what you think!

- 4 C. apples
- 1/4 C. raisins – soaked 1 hour
- 3/4 C. ground flax seed
- 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
Blend or food process ingredients until smooth. Spread evenly on drying sheets. Dry at 115 F. for 3 hours, rotating trays every hour. Flip drying sheets face down once surface of wrap is no longer wet. Continue drying for another 3 hours. Peel away drying sheet once the wraps release. If they stick to the drying sheets continue drying. Do not over dry or they’ll become brittle. If they do become brittle, mist them with water. Fill wraps with your favorite fresh fruit and a creamy cashew filling. (See Cashew Filling on Basic Recipe page) (If using a conventional oven please turn to it’s lowest temperature setting, place wrap mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper spreading evenly, check in 1.5 hr. roting sheet or sheets every 1/2 hour. flip parchment paper face down on baking sheet for another 1 hr. or 1 1/2 hr until wraps peel away from parchment paper easily if they stick then leave in a little longer. You do not want to overdry as they will become brittle. IF they do become brittle mist with water. Conventional ovens dehydrate more quickly so often dehydration times of cut in half.)
