Overview

I love this raw crepe recipe because it's just fruit and water. Easy! Basically, all you have to do is make a banana smoothie and throw it into the dehydrator. And it always turns out well, too.

Directions

  • 1. Add all 8 bananas to your high-speed blender. Pour in 1/2 cup water.
  • 2. Blend on high until very nicely mixed. It will look like a nice, thick smoothie.
  • 3. Most likely your dehydrator tray has little holes in it, thus you'll need to either use teflex sheets or parchment paper to line your dehydrator trays. (Do not ever use "wax paper" because the food will stick to it and it'll be a huge disaster.) Pour 1/4 of the recipe on 1 of 4 lined dehydrator trays. The batter should be spread out quite thinly, and be sure to spread out the "batter" thoroughly so that each tray is one big crepe. It's easy, don't worry.
  • 4. Dehydrate your raw crepes until they are a lot less liquidy and totally pliable. Dehydration time for this raw crepe recipe varies depending on a gajillion factors, like humidity and temperature. However, to give you some indication, today I dehydrated my raw crepes for 1 hour at 125 degrees, then I lowered to 105 for another 8 hours or so.
  • 5. Watch them closely, because you'll want them to be pliable so that you can roll them up! Do not overdry. If you overdry they'll still taste good, but you won't be able to roll them and they'll be kind of crispy and brittle. In order to test them, just try peeling them off the parchment paper or teflex sheet.
  • 6. Serve with whatever you like to top your crepes with, for example, you can place a line of fruit dip and top with fresh raspberries, then roll up crepe-style and eat with a knife and fork. Perfect for a gourmet raw breakfast! Pretty sweet though so brace yourself for a sugary breaky!
  • This recipe should fill 4 regular dehydryator trays. Thus, it will make 8 crepes. (Just make 4 big crepes and then cut each crepe in half once it's done.)

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw crepes are so gosh darn easy. If you can make a smoothie and if you own a dehydrator then you're all set. They do take some time in the dehydrator though, so they're not instant. :)

You know me and my obsession with the simple. So here's the very first raw crepe recipe that I made as a raw vegan. I love this raw crepe recipe because it's just fruit and water. Easy! Basically, all you have to do is make a banana smoothie and throw it into the dehydrator. And it always turns out well, too.

You can serve your raw crepes about a thousand great ways. Like, you can make a sweet cashew cream (also called raw fruit dip) and top with fruit then roll.

Note that your crepes are already really sweet due to the bananas, so you might want to top with tart, sharp fruits like raspberries with a bit of lemon squeezed on top. Or more sweetness is fine too :)

Hi thanks for this wonderful blog. I'm new at eating vegan and I want to incorporate as much raw food as possible. Your recipes seem to be the perfect helpers for this. Can you tell me if I can freeze the crepes if I don't eat them all? How long can I leave them in the refrigerator? Thanks.

Hi Marie-Frederique,

Yes, you can freeze.

If refrigerating them, they will harden up a bit, but you can keep them in the fridge for 4 days or so.

Hey Laura-Jane! Quick questions on how to store the crepes? How? Where? How long?

I have had my dehydrator for about 3 weeks now, and I am having so much fun with it!! I have made apple, yam, beet, and 3 diff. kinds of kale chips (incl. Russell James' Chocolate Kale Chips - Yum!), raw cinnamon rolls, your pizza crusts - which were awesome!, caramelized onions, cookies, flax crackers, and I'm ready to try some of these crepes!!

Hi Carolina! This is a side-effect of the dehydrating process.. Mine are pretty brown in the pic too.

Made these on the weekend. Like Lana, i made them the night before and had them for breakfast. Stuffed with kiwi and strawberries, it made an awesome wrap.

Thanks for the simple but tasty recipes! I get so intimidated when I see recipes that have lists and lists of ingredients and steps.

I also get intimidated by gigantic recipes :) That's why I like to keep mine simple. Strawberry kiwi crepes. Divine!

I've noticed that in a lot of your recipes you set the dehydrator at higher temperatures, like 125 degrees F in this recipe...doesn't it defeat the point of eating raw if you heat your food past 115 degres F? In your About Me section you actually say that you don't eat food heated beyond 105! I really like your recipes and I'm anxious to try them, but I'm wondering if they're really raw after you heat them so much.

I remember having the same question, then I saw somewhere that said something along the lines of -- the initial 125 degrees F for the first hour just speeds up the process of taking out excess water. The actual temperature of the food never exceeds 105/115 (can't remember which one it was), so it is still considered raw, with all the enzymes intact. Just remember to turn it down after one hour! Hope that helps!

Ummmm raw cinnamon rolls???? Share please.

Storing crepes! Well, you could probably keep for about two weeks, I'd probably lie em flat in a big ziploc and then store flat in fridge.
Bye! :)

Thanks! Just bought a boat-load of bananas to try this out!

The raw cinnamon roll recipe I found on "rawmazing.com" They were delightful! I, like you, am very into simple! These seemed intimidating at first sight b/c of the different layer/steps, but were really quite easy. Actual food handling time wasn't much! good luck!
