With a blender, blend cherries and water together, until you only see small pieces of cherries. If you are using frozen cherries it helps to let them thaw before blending.
In a mixing bowl add cherry mixture and stir in lime juice and zest, vanilla, cardamom, and salt.
Next, add coconut and chia seeds.
Once all the liquid is absorbed, scoop 2 tablespoons of the mixture on to dehydrator rack and flatten down to no more than ½ inch thick. If you scoop and flatten within a round cookie cutter, your circles will be more uniform.
Repeat until all the mixture is on the drying rack.
Dehydrate at 125 ℉ for 12-16 hours, or until completely dried out.
Store in an air-tight container.
While each Coconut Chai Crunch Snacks only has 2g net carbs per serving, to decrease the carbs you can omit the cherries. Honestly, these are great plain, with just the coconut, chia seeds, salt, and water.
Plain Coconut Chia Crunch Snacks only have about 1.5 grams net carbs.
If you do not have a dehydrator you can make these in the oven. Form the snacks on silicon lines baking sheets and place in the oven on ovens lower temperature.
When dehydrating in an oven it is important to keep a closer eye on the food because there is a chance to burn the food, this happened slowly, however. If you do use your oven you may need to flip the snacks over part way through the dehydration prosses.
