Kristy and I spent a wonderful week in Yellowstone National Park.

We were able to do some trail running in some of the most beautiful places and now we're hooked! We've never really ran on trails before, so yesterday, we decided to trail run here in Lincoln, NE. We have some wonderful state parks close to our home with lots of trails to run or bike. It was quite the adventure but lots of fun. Anyways, after returning from Yellowstone, I started craving the breakfast patties I used to eat before becoming vegan and raw. So, I decided to make my own raw version of them. After a couple different tries, I came up with this version of a raw breakfast patty. I thought they were delicious and ate half of them right out of the dehydrator! They are wonderful with a little pure maple syrup over them or a good gravy would be awesome.

Soak 2 cups regular oats in 3 cups room temperature water for several hours. (I soaked mine for about 6-7 hours). Or you can soak them overnight. Drain excess water.

Soak 2t chia seeds in 1/4 cup water for about 10 minutes.

Mix together the sauce ingredients:

  • 2 1/4T Tamari
  • 1 1/2T olive oil
  • 1/2T pure maple syrup
  • 2 1/4T nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/2T sage
  • 3/4t garlic powder
  • 3/4t onion powder
  • 1t chili powder
  • 1/4t cayenne pepper
  • 1/2t sea salt

Place soaked oats in processor. Add the sauce, chia seed gel and

  • 1/2 cup pecan meal
  • 1/2 chopped, peeled, & cored apple

Process until smooth. Pour batter into mixing bowl and hand mix in 1/4 cup psyllium husks

You can dehydrate these two ways:


Turn oven to your lowest temperature. Place parchment paper on baking tray and spoon batter onto tray to make your patties. These are like sausage patties, so you don't want them too big or too thick. I used an ice cream scoop to make my patties. Place tray on top rack and with door open, dehydrate for about 30 minutes and turn patties over. Dehydrate another 30 minutes and they should be done. Ours was done within an hour. Eat & enjoy. Store leftovers in refrigerator. Makes about 20 patties.


Place parchment paper on mesh screen and make your patties. I used an ice cream scoop to make mine. Place trays in dehydrator for 1 hour at 145 degrees. After an hour, turn patties onto the mesh screen and dehydrate at 115 degrees until done. Ours took between 4-5 more hours depending on how thick or big your patties are.  They are wonderful right out of the dehydrator. These are great with a little maple syrup over them or a good gravy. Store leftovers in refrigerator. Makes about 20 patties.
