Banana Nut Brittle

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

This recipe is sooo delicious!  If you love banana bread, you will love this brittle recipe.  You can really use any nut that you wanted to or had on hand.  We had a hard time staying out of the dehydrator, sneaking bits and pieces.  It had me fooled for a bit though.  It appeared at first as though it would never firm up and be crunchy.  I even kept it in the dehydrator a bit longer and I was shaking my head thinking that there is no way it would ever dry out enough to be crispy.  However when I finally pulled it out and allowed it to cool on the kitchen counter, that is when things changed and it went from chewy to crispy!  This stuff is addictive!  I bagged some up for my mother to take on the airplane with her and I froze the rest.

    I absolutely love your posts. I am switching to a RAW diet next week. You have inspired me so much, thanks a bunch.

    I was wondering if you think there is a way to make a raw version of this recipe?
