There’s so much you can do with a food dehydrator, from making dried fruits to beef jerky and even potpourri! I’ve wanted one for a while now as my family often eats dried fruits for a snack and buying them from the grocery store does add up. I recently received the EZ-Store 5-Tray Turbo Dehydrator from Ronco and I can’t wait to save some money by making my own healthy snacks.
Did you know you can make cookies with a food dehydrator? Yes, you sure can and I didn’t even realize that until recently! Doesn’t that sound yummy? I sure think so.
I was shared a recipe for Carrot Cake Dehydrator Cookies by Chef Paja. I think they’re amazing. This time of year, we are continuously around so many sugary sweets, and it’ll only get worse as Halloween draws near. It’s time we take a break from all the unhealthy sugary foods, and enjoy a yummy, nutritious treat. These Carrot Cake Dehydrator Cookies are a great healthy alternative to sugar-filled cookies. They’re no-bake, gluten free and vegan. If you like Carrot Cake, I’m sure you’ll enjoy these!

If you decide to make these, let me know what you think. What are some other things you make in your food dehydrator?
