Corn nutritionally, it contains folate, phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, protein, potassium, fiber, thiamine, and panthotenic acid. It also has Vitamins A, C, E and K. That's an impressive list of nutrients.
- 4 cups raw corn kernels cut from cob
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ½ cup water
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- 2 chile peppers (jalepeno)
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 bunch cilantro
- ½ cup ground flaxseeds (preferably golden flaxseed) (if mixture is too watery, add more ground flax until mixture is thicker)
Mix all ingredients (except flax) in a blender. Add mixture to dry flaxseeds and mix thoroughly. Spread thinly onto dehydrator sheets, transferring onto the dehydrator trays as mixture dries and score into shapes.
You can dehydrate these chips at 105 degrees for about 12 hours or cheat a bit by increasing the temperature to 110 degrees for a slightly less drying time. You want to dehydrate enough to get a crispy chip as opposed to a chewy one.
