This recipe is another great use for overripe bananas… however this one is 100% raw! Thanks to my latest addition in the kitchen – my first Excalibur dehydrator -thanks to Santa! ;) -these are a raw take on peanut brittle.
Banana Nut Brittle
4 ripe bananas
1 1/3 cup pitted Medjool dates
1 cup shredded coconut
1 1/2 cup chopped almonds, pecans, or mac nuts
I used a few macadamia nuts but mostly pecans since mac nuts are SO pricey… the mac nuts bring me back to yesteryear…
In the food processor mix bananas and dates until smooth and creamy. Add in chopped nuts/nut flour until well mixed.
On a dehydrator sheet lined with reusable parchment paper – spread the mixture as evenly as you can. Once flat and evenly spread, score into squares. I made about 12 per sheet. Set dehydrator to 110 degrees and leave for 12 hours. After roughly 12 hours, flip pieces so the heat is evenly distributed. After another 12 hours, remove pieces from dehydrator and store in fridge or freezer. The brittle hardens up nicely and is SO delicious. You won’t be missing the real stuff with this delicious treat!
Sorry no real pictures of the brittle… my mom and I gobbled it up too fast…
