Chocolate banana wraps are a great raw food staple to keep on hand. Whether you decide to spruce them up by sprinkling nuts, seeds, chopped dried fruit, coconut or cacao nibs on top or not… you can enjoy them as a quick snack or a decadent dessert. I referred to them as a “staple” because if properly wrapped, they can last 6-12 months!
You can cut them into strips, creating “fruit wraps” or you can roll them up with about any kind of filling inside. Try nut butters, fresh fruit… Be creative!
When I made these last time, I made some plain and some with almonds sprinkled on them.
One of the greatest joys when creating raw food recipes is experimenting with different ingredients… a practice that I highly encourage. Daily I get questions regarding substitutions. Of course we all might have different dietary needs and tastes which could necessitate altering a recipe. I love to share with you what I create for myself, my husband, friends and family. I spend a lot of time selecting the right ingredients with a particular goal in mind, looking to build a certain flavor and texture.
So as you experiment with substitutions, remember they are what they sound like, they are substitutes for the preferred item. Generally they are not going to behave, taste, or have the same texture as the suggested ingredient. Some may work, and others may not and I can’t promise what the results will be unless I’ve tried them myself. So have fun, don’t be afraid, and remember, substituting is how I discovered many of my unique dishes.
You can just make it plain as well.
