Maple Cinnamon Toast with Apples
Maple Cinnamon Toast with Apples provides quick-energy for hikers who eat light in the morning. Really hungry hikers can enjoy it as a breakfast side item or even as a bedtime snack. For more protein and fat, munch a few slices of dried ham and mix-up a glass of whole milk.
- 2 slices of bread, dehydrated
- 1 tsp Maple Syrup per slice
- Cinnamon to taste
- ½ cup apples, dehydrated
- ½ cup water
For information about dehydrating apples, see dehydrating fruit.
Place sliced bread on dehydrator trays.
Drizzle one teaspoon of maple syrup over each slice of bread as evenly as possible. Sprinkle with cinnamon. For healthier cinnamon toast, use real maple syrup instead of the artificial stuff. Real maple syrup from trees provides valuable vitamins and minerals.
Dehydrating times vary with model used. With my Excalibur Dehydrator, I dehydrate at 125° for approximately five hours. If you are thinking about purchasing a food dehydrator, square trays provide more useable surface area for greater drying capacity than round or donut shaped trays.
Place dehydrated apples in a 3 x 5 plastic bag and enclose in a sandwich size bag with toast.
If you are not packing toast for a backpacking trip, you can quickly prepare toast for home use in a toaster oven instead of dehydrating.
On the Trail:
Combine apple slices with ½ cup water and heat over low flame until warm. There is no need to boil. If you prefer a no-cook breakfast, soak apples in water for about ten minutes without heating.
Spread apples over toast. If you heated the apples, you will have a nice little sip of warm apple juice leftover to enjoy. In the event that your toast breaks apart before use, just add the broken pieces of toast to the apples in the pot and employ your spoon.
I hope you enjoy maple cinnamon toast with apples. Return to breakfast foods.
