Some of you may already know that I have a brand new dehydrator at home, which is also the reason for the lack of posts lately. I’m diving into the raw cuisine with the open eyes of a new born baby. Raw crackers, raw desserts, “baked” nuts… I want to try it all and my dehydrator is working 24-7!

There are so many recipes I want to taste that the first moment the Excalibur arrived I got totally lost. I had absolutely no idea what to start with, where to begin and how to do it, although I spent the last 2 weeks preparing myself and reading all there is to read about using the thing. I also had a list with favorite recipes sticked to my desktop… Well, I had a list with recipes and no ingredients at all. Yeah, I know, the joke is on me. Instead of reading all days long I could’ve bought the necessary products, sprouted different things and prepare better.

Anyway, I managed to pull a couple of cracker variations (will share my most favorite one soon) and some desserts. I’m a true believer that you eat with your eyes wide open, so when I see something beautiful I got inspired. This time my inspiration were these cute little raw fruit paper like crepes appetizer from rawmazing.com, I just wanted mine sweet. The best option I could think of for making them sweet was fruit crepes for the bags and raw brownies for the filling. Easy, delicious and so beautiful! Especially if you make different variations, in my case – orange, apples & kiwi ones. Yum!
