Raw Chocolate Banana Wraps

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Raw-Chocolate-Banana-Wraps1Chocolate 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.

Ingredients: yields 4 cups

  • 8 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • 3 Tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt

Preparation:

  1. In the food processor, fitted with the “S” blade, combine the bananas, flax seeds, cacao powder, lemon juice and salt.  Process until it is nice and creamy.
  2. Spread 2 cups of batter on the non-stick teflex sheets that come with the dehydrator.
  3. Be sure to spread it evenly so it dries evenly.
  4. Add topping if desired.
  5. Dehydrate at 115 degrees (F) for about 8 hours.
    • Every once in a while check in on it.  You know it is done when you can carefully peel the “wrap” off of the teflex sheet.
    • If you have any “wet” spots on the back side, flip the wet side up and continue drying for another hour or so.
  6. To store:  lay out a large piece of plastic wrap, lay the chocolate wrap on the plastic and roll it up, tucking the sides underneath.

    This particular wrap is a favourite of ours, we have them for breakfast …. And right now I have a different variety in the dehydrator made from mangoes. Looking forward to see how they turn out.

    Thank you amie-sue,
    I did this because I had all of the ingredients on hand though I only had enough for half a recipe. Delicious, definitely will do this regularly.

    Ok, I made this today. I had a friend over for a cooked dinner tonight. She asked what was in the dehydratorl, so I gave her some. Then gave her more. Then while I was busy at the stove, she said “OMG, this stuff is addictive!” She ate about 1/3 of a sheet before dinner, then took the rest of the sheet home with her.
    Obviously a successful recipe.
    Thank you.
