If you love to camp and enjoy the great outdoors as much as my family, here is a take along snack that is sure to please. Using my dehyrator compacts so many things and makes them easy to take along since it removes the need for refrigeration.

What yummy little delights!!... saw this recipe and you had my at figs and dates ...two of my current raves...I used apricot, raw seeds and nuts...fresh juice and unsweetened natural coconut...{{found I needed way less than a cup of the coconut; so I would put it out a bit at a time as I roll when doing it again}}...added a bit of sea salt and cinnamon to enhance the flavors...next time I will prob. fool around w/ a touch of carob or cocoa powder to get my "figgy" really on ;) ;) ;)-Thanks for the recipe share...:) Like I said YUM !!!
