Food Dehydrator Recipes You Need in Your Life
When someone claims to have the BEST Beef Jerky Recipe ever, well, you really have to try it, don’t you? It looks scrumptious.
I can easily go overboard with eating too many chips, but at least you don’t feel quite as guilty when they’re homemade sweet potato chips.
Or at 40 calories per serving, you can’t go wrong with these salt and vinegar zucchini chips.
And here’s another healthy snack for the dehydrator: spicy buffalo cauliflower popcorn. I love popcorn but not the carbs, so this is a nice alternative with tons of flavor.
If you’re not a fan of banana chips (too dry or brittle), you may like these chewy, tangy dehydrated bananas instead.
Dehydrated onions may not exactly be a tasty treat, but you’ll use them all throughout the year to add to soups, stews, dips and more. If you can, use a different dehydrator than you use for other foods. No matter how much you clean it, the onion smell and flavor will linger from batch to batch.
Enjoy blueberry muffins made from scratch all year long by dehydrating your blueberries during peak season.

We’re warning you now, these dried and fried Sriracha Chickpeas are addictive!
Tart green apple slices topped with caramel and put in the dehydrator… Do I need to say more? Delish.
You could also go with the more classic Cinnamon Apple Chips.
Apricot Coconut Dehydrator Cookies are another sweet treat option that I never would have thought to make in my dehydrator.
Homemade Snap Pea Chips are delightfully crunchy on a salad, but oddly enough, they’re tasty when paired with plain yogurt, too.
Dehydrated pears do taste like candy. They’re naturally sweet, and in my opinion, pears are totally underrated. They’re one of my favorite fruits!
Make a whole array of paleo skittles for the kids. You’ll feel good knowing that they’re eating healthy stuff without any added sugars or preservatives.
Pineapple fruit roll-ups will be another hit with your kids. Just pop them into their lunches for a nice mid-day snack at school.
