  • 3 organic red apples of your choice
  • 3 organic Granny Smith apples 
  • 1 large organic carrot
  • 1 tbsp grade B maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt 
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional) 


Grate your carrot and place into a large mixing bowl. Core and slice your apples as thinly as you can (use mandoline if you have one) and place them into the bowl with the carrots.

In a small bowl, mix together syrup, salt and cayenne. Gently fold into apples and carrots.

Once coated, place apples and carrots on the Teflex sheets of your dehydrator tray and place in a dehydrator set to a temperature of 95-100°F. Let slices dehydrate for 4-6 hours. After about 2 hrs, transfer the mix to the dehydrator screens so the air can come in on all sides. Dehydrate for a few more hours until desired dryness is achieved.

Preheat to 225. Place the slices and shreds in a single layer on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Check at 1 hour and flip over. Apples will bake for another 30-60 minutes. Once done to your preferred consistency, let cool before eating.
