It is sometimes best to make these in large batches. By the time they are fully dehydrated, someone may have already eaten most of them! One of the great challenges in preparing raw foods is the search to replace some very popular foods. Chocolate chips are one such example. Fortunately, a very talented chef I have worked with, Kristen Reyes, discovered this method.

Much is said about the dehydrator in this and other raw food cookbooks. You can certainly live without it: use an oven at the lowest setting with its door propped open, or go back to nature and lay your foods in the sun. But the truth is, dehydrators are inexpensive and easy to use, and fulfill a very important role in creative raw food recipes. Excalibur seems to be the most common and most useful at the moment.
