Cook time
Total time
Cuisine: raw food, raw vegan, gluten-free, grain-free
Serves: 30
  • 1 medium sized beet
  • 2 apples
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅔ cups to 1 cup coconut flour or other grain-free flour of your choice (adjust the amount depending on the flour you are using)*
  1. Roughly chop the apples and beet and add it to the food processor. Blend until everything becomes a fine mince. Scrape the sides of the food processor in between blending.
  2. Add the almond butter and cinnamon and blend.
  3. Once it becomes a thick paste, add in the coconut flour or the flour or your choice. Blend until it forms a dough about the firmness of your earlobe. The amount of flour you need will vary depending on the flour you are using.
  4. Lay down a silicone sheet for the dehydrator and place the dough on top of it. Put another silicone sheet on top of the dough and roll out the dough into ¼" thickness. You can use parchment paper instead of the silicone sheets if you like.
  5. Peel off the silicone sheet on top and use a cookie cutter to cut it into your desired shapes. You can also roll the dough into round small cookies by hand instead.
Dehydrator method:
  1. Line the dehydrator tray with a mesh sheet. Lay the treats down and dry at 115℉(46℃) for 24 hours until completely dry. After a few hours of drying, flip the treats upside down for even drying.
  2. Once they are completely dry, store them in an air-tight container.
Oven method:
  1. Preheat the oven at 350℉ (175℃).
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and lay the treats down. Bake for 25-30 mins.
  3. Let it cool and store them in an air-tight container.
*The amount of flour needed will vary depending on the dryness of the flour you are using.

Keeps for 1 month.
