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!

    Going to the store NOW! Recipes like this are why dehydrators were invented;)

    Wow, I might just try the compote. I’m going raw vegan this week and I’m loving all the recipes I’m discovering. Great blog!

    I have been eating raw for about a year and absolutely love it. I also received a dehydrator for Christmas and am having so much fun trying different recipes. It will be a staple in my kitchen for years to come. However, since I am new to dehydrating, when you say “finish dehydrating until dry” – I need a little bit more idea of what that is hours, days, etc. I love your recipes. Thank you for your help.

      Dehydration time is not like oven time. It is dependent on the humidity, the type of dehydrator you have, etc. So, it is hard to give exact times. I would suggest that you just check as you go. Nothing that I have on the site requires days, or even 24 hours. Cheers!

    forget the crackers your photographer is phomazing, no seriously can’t wait to give them a go, mostly because they look so darn tantalizing in the pic.

    Thanks for the information Susan. It looks as if I’m going to have to be creative with the ingredients I use.
    I’ll let everyone know when I discover something new!
    Best Wishes.

    I’me very new to preparing raw food. In fact, this will be my very first venture.
    Could I use rolled oats instead of flaked oats?
    I shall try to make the flour in my vitamax, although I don’t have the special flour-making container.
    I’m not very sure whether the weather in the UK is really any good for having only raw foods. It can get pretty chilly over here! Can I drink hot water?

    • Susan wrote on March 13, 2012

      Rolled oats are not raw, just so you know. I live in Minnesota, very cold. I do not do a 100% raw diet. More like 80% with a higher percentage in the summer. Cheers!
