Pear Walnut Raw Crackers with Raw Pear Fig Compote
Walnuts, and pears come together beautifully in these tasty little raw crackers. Highlighted with cinnamon, sage, cracked pepper and a pinch of salt (himalayan) and topped with a raw fig-pear compote, I mean, who doesn’t like figs, they are the perfect little treat for tea. Well, if you don’t have time for tea, they make a great little snack any time of the day.
This little pear fig compote comes together quickly and is the perfect topping to compliment the crackers. A quick whirl in the food processor and you have a lovely, thick, tasty spread. Just two ingredients, pears and dried figs!
MAKES 75 2X2 CRACKERS AND 1 CUP COMPOTE
- 2 pears, cored and puréed in food processor (I used very ripe, juicy pears.)
- 2 cups walnuts, ground fine in food processor
- 1 cup almonds, ground fine in food processor
- 2 cups raw oat flour*
- 1 cup raw flaked oats
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons ground sage
- 1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper (can add more to taste)
- Himalayan salt to taste
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Place half the mixture on a non-stick dehydrator sheet. Top with a layer of parchment.
- Roll out dough until it is 1/3″ thick.
- Peel off parchment and score with knife. Dehydrate for 1 hour at 145 then reduce heat and continue to dehydrate for 5 more hours. Flip onto mesh screens and finish dehydrating until dry.
Pear Fig Compote
- 1 pear
- 12 dried figs, stems cut in half
- Place pear and figs in food processor. Process until compote texture is achieved. You may need to scrape the mixture down a few times during processing.
*You can buy raw oats and raw oat flour at Sunrise Flour Mill. Optionally, I soaked raw, organic oat groats over-night, dehydrated them and ground them into oat flour with a flour mill. I also made my own flaked oats with a flaker. Both can be purchased through Sunrise Flour Mills.

my body has never liked oats, but all the other ingredients sound so good!! i’ve been struggling when making substitutions lately in recipes. seems i can’t quite picture the right replacement. can you suggest something i could do instead of oats? i’m not really concerned with “raw”…i just really like dehydrated crackers. so healthy.

Without being able to see what you did, it’s a little hard to advise… 🙂

I tried this recipe but it did not look the same. It tasted nice but lacked presentation your thoughts?
