Prep Time 15 minutes


  • 1 Jar Apple Sauce 28 oz
  • 1 Banana
  • 6 Dates chopped
  • Cup Flax Seeds
  • 2 tbs Honey
  • 1 tbs Agave Nectar
  • 1 tbs Cinnamon
  • ½ Cup Orange Juice
  • 2 Apples shredded
  • 1 Cup Oatmeal uncooked
  • ½ Cup Coconut shredded
  • 3 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal



  • Add apple sauce, chopped dates, banana, honey, cinnamon and flax seeds to blender. Let this sit to soften up the dates while you get the other things ready.
  • Peel, core and shred two apples. Combine with orange juice in a large mixing bowl. Mix it around a bit to keep the apples from turning brown. Add oatmeal, coconut and Rice Krispies to the mixing bowl and stir.
  • Turn the blender on for about two minutes or until everything is well blended. Dump blender contents into mixing bowl and mix well. Pour mixture into a large bag or jerky gun. If using a bag, cut a ½ inch hole in one corner.
  • Cover dehydrator trays with parchment paper. Make lines of apple jerky on trays.
  • Dry at 135° F for about nine hours. At five hours, take off and continue drying. Will dry like fruit leather.
  • Let cool and cut strips in two or three pieces. Store in airtight bags in large or small quantities.
