Partially dehydrate energy balls


I made some oatmeal energy balls (homemade oat flour, dates, peanut butter, chia seeds, water) and wanted to partially dehydrate them to make them a little less chewy but still keep the temp below 115 degrees. Am I asking for trouble bacteria-wise if I dehydrated them for around 10 hours and then popped them into the fridge? They weren't entirely dry when I took them out.

More broadly, what are the rules for dehydrating long-term (over 24 hour)? Is it dangerous to keep the temperature low for long periods?

Thanks for you time.

    I've sun dried for much longer than that. They should be fine as long as you don't leave them in the fridge for more than a couple days.

    I've never had an issue with long dehydrating times. Some things just take that long. It's an interesting question, though. I might have to look more into the science of it.
