Cynthia’s Sweet Treats-Phases 1/1.5/2 Options

Shortbread – Phase 1 (Makes 3 Dozen) 

6 C. nut pulp (what is strained out when making nut milk)

¼ C. flaxseed

½ C. + 2 Tbsp. Smart Sweet (this can be found online)

¾ C. Coconut Oil

3 ½ Tbsp. Maca powder (optional, Phase 1.5)

½ tsp. Himalayan Salt

1/8 tsp. Liquid Stevia

1/8 tsp. Hazelnut Stevia

1/8 tsp. Vanilla Stevia

Optional for Phase 1.5: 3 1/2 Tbsp. Maca powder

Grind flax seeds into meal using a coffee grinder or blender, and set aside. Mix all ingredients except ground flax in a bowl. Once mixed, add flax, form into shapes, and dehydrate for 1 hour at 145°F then dehydrate for 6-8 hours on 105°F. (If using a conventional oven, please set at lowest temperature, place shapes onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper, place tray in oven, keep the oven door slightly open, use oven fan if available, check after 3.5 hours for crisp. Conventional ovens dehydrate quicker than dehydrators. Often the time is cut in half so please keep an watchful eye after 3.5 hours.)
