Betternut Bites

These little pumpkin cookies are moist and delicious, with just enough pumpkin flavour peeking through amongst the sweetness from the raisins.

1/3 cup butternut pumpkin chunks
1/4 cup walnuts, soaked
1/4 cup almonds, soaked
3 tbsp raisins
1/2 a small orange

Soak the nuts for at least four hours, then drain. Place pumpkin chunks in a food processor and chop until small pieces, then add the nuts and process until homogenised (all mixed together). Get the orange half in your fist and squeeze out as much juice as you can into the food processor and process for approximately 20 seconds. Scrape down the sides and add 3 'segments' of the orange and the raisins and process, stopping to scrape down the dies as necessary, until the raisins are all chopped. Form the mixture into small balls, place on a mesh dehydrator sheet and flatten a little, then dehydrate for 6 hours, flip over and dehydrate for another six. If you want crispier 'bites,' dehydrate for another 3 hours or so. If you don't have a dehydrator these could probably be cooked in an oven on lowest heat.
