Love this recipe...tagged for the Healthy Choices game and I have made it a least a half dozen times since I found it...We juice a lot in this house...lots of pulp that I am constantly looking for ways to re-new...re-cycle in some creative way...this is hands down the best recipe find yet & I have played with a lot of things over the past couple of years ...I have stuck to the recipe as written by mliss29 and adored the results then began to re-interpreted it with all types of berries, (fresh and dried), nuts and sunflower seeds (pretty much by whim and what was at hand :) )...sometimes adding cinnamon so that the house smells of "cookies" baking all day as they dry...most recently I leave some of the pulp from beet,ginger, & apple that I juice run into the carrot mix...the beet especially makes VERY interesting colored scones {{lol}}...for extra kicks I added blueberries to those :) = FUN!! They always work fabulously (trick is to keep tasting the batter as you make them 'till they are "just right" {lol}...these are a huge hit with people who do not even know they are eating ...:) (which is my juice pulp that usually serves as soup stock, or even compost!!!)- I have not yet tried to mix the pulp from my cabbage, kale or beet greens in but I know I will)...I don't know if my interpretation is what is intended because I make them by the half batches and get about two dozen...I like them the size of scones like my Mom's Mom (we called her Nanny/Nell) used to make...scones have ALWAYS been my favorite treat...I grew up on them - they remind me of childhood and Irish faerie tales & LOVE this live food version...Thanks for sharing!!

Made them according to the recipe with the following * exceptions*: I used almond butter that I ground fresh from my health food store (closest I could figure to ground almonds), and dates instead of raisins. The prep time and the dehydration time took considerably longer than suggested as well. They weren't bad - just not what I was hoping for. I've made carrot pulp cookies before and I guess I thought these might be kinda like those but they weren't. I really wanted to like these but I don't think I'll be making them again.

Yum, yum, yummy! I just got a dehydrator and was anxious to get started. These were wonderful and could be made with endless variety. For the fruits I used a combo of raisins, cranberries, dates and cherries. Next time, I might throw in some bits of candied ginger for a little 'bite'. They are fairly quick (from gathering ingredients to loading them in the dehydrator was less than a half hour) and very easy with EXCELLENT results. Thank you mliss29 for posting!

A friend of mine has a dehydrator so was able & willing not only to give me tips on the subject but also to help me with this recipe in exchange for some of these EXTREMELY TASTY THINGIES! It took a bit longer than 10 minutes to set everything in motion, but then I'm a newbie to all this, & . . . As much as I like raisins, I did use chopped dates for these 'scones.' These are wonderful treats that I'll be making again & again! Thanks for sharing a great recipe! {Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my raw food partners in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 3]
