Sweet Chia!

Okay, so it's not all that sweet in flavor, but I made a wrap with chia seeds. I filled the wrap with fresh blueberries and a creamy almond-orange filling, and I was very happy with the results. Yummy!
Sweet Chia Wrap
1 c. packed fruit pulp (left over from juicing fresh fruit)
1 banana
¼ tsp. cinnamon
Enough water to get it to blend
¾ c. flax meal (ground flaxseed)
½ c. chia seeds
Place chia & flax meal in a large bowl. Blend all other ingredients well in a blender & add liquid mixture to bowl. Stir well & spread on a dehydrator sheet lined with parchment paper or Teflex. Dehydrate at 105 F until the top is dry & it will come easily off the parchment/Teflex. Turn over onto a mesh dehydrator tray, removing parchment/Teflex, and continue to dehydrate until fairly dry but still somewhat flexible.
I think the dehydrating time was about 8 hours from batter to finished wrap. I just kept checking & tasting little pieces as I went.
Almond-Orange Filling
Equal amounts of cashews and soaked almonds
Enough fresh orange juice to get it to blend well
Pinch sea salt
Blend all ingredients well in high-speed blender (Vita-Mix, Blendtec, etc.).
