Raw Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Pear Chips…a healthy, clean eating recipe made with a dehydrator and whole food ingredients and they’re organic, raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, paleo-friendly and contain no refined sugar.
Move over dehydrated apple chips, because there’s a new dried fruit chip in town…Raw Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Pear Chips and they are just as good, if not better.
I had just received a beautiful bunch of organic pears from my Farmbox Direct delivery (they deliver organic fruits and veggies straight to your door) and had already made a couple of things with some of the pears like this Cacao and Pear Protein Smoothie and this Pear and Ginger Soup (coming soon!).
But I couldn’t think of anything else exciting to make with these and they kept staring at me from the fruit bowl I have on my counter top, so I decided to dehydrate them and make chips.
Instead of making them plain (which would have also been good!) I used one of my organic Primal Palate spices, “Cinnamon Sugar Cookie“. The only ingredients in it are organic maple sugar and organic Saigon cinnamon. Organic maple sugar is a natural alternative to cane sugar and you can use less too because you only need 1/2 cup to replace 1 cup of cane sugar.
While I would have ~never~ convinced my oldest son to eat a plain pear, he was the one who ate most of the pear chips when they were ready. Like 95% of them!
These are a healthy snack for your little ones and you can also make Clean Eating Cinnamon Vanilla Apple Chips too.

Where to Buy: You can purchase the organic Primal Palate “Cinnamon Sugar Cookie” spice I used in this recipe here.
Tip #1: You don’t have to use the Primal Palate spices to make this recipe…just make a mixture of 2:1 organic sugar to the organic cinnamon mixture.
Tip #2: I’ve never tried to make these in an oven, but you could try to put them on the very lowest heat an keep a close eye on them to make sure they don’t burn. Also, they wouldn’t be considered “100% raw”.
Tip #3: The pears will be somewhat sweet and will get “sweeter” when dehydrated. If you don’t want an overly sweet snack, I would just add 1 tablespoon of the cinnamon sugar mixture instead of 2.
Tip #4: I used an Excalibur dehydrator to make these and have owned mine for over 9 years. It’s perfect to make these kinds of healthy, raw snacks!
