You know, pistachios are one of those nuts that are under used in recipes. I really do love them, perhaps too much and that is why I don’t have them sitting around to often. Bob loves them too and you can always tell where he sits in the house because it seems like there is always a trail of pistachio shells to be found. :)
Pistachios are full of nutrients and fiber, and known to be great for digestion. New research indicates that these ultra-healthy nuts have prebiotic characteristics – meaning they can help support higher levels of beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract. Just one serving of pistachios can make a big difference for your aching stomach. And there’s more good news – one serving is 47 nuts, a larger serving size than any other type of nut, which clocks in at only 158 calories and contains more fiber than half a cup of spinach. That fiber, along with pistachios’ unsaturated fat keeps your digestive system running smoothly. The healthy fats also help to lower cholesterol levels. (source)
This bar can be dehydrator-free if you want it too. Which is a great option to have. If you decide not to dehydrate it, make sure to keep them stored in the fridge or freezer. I hope you enjoy this treat, Blessings.
The photo below is after I dehydrated them for about 12 hours at 115 degrees.
