Recipe Directions

  • 1. Add pecans to food processor. Process until quite small - resembling coarse flour.
  • 2. Add dates. Process until well combined and you can't even see the dates any more.
  • 3. Break a perfectly ripe banana (not too hard and not too soft) into chunks and add to food processor mixture. Process again until banana is well combined.  
  • 4. Spread mixture onto parchment paper. Dehydrate in your dehydrator for approximately 8 hours.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

 Enjoy this raw turtles recipe batter ooeh and gooey straight out of the food processor for a super sugary, caramel style nut fudge. Or spread onto a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate for caramel candies.

 The flavor of my raw turtles recipe is super sweet pecan pie with a subtle hint of banana flavor.

The only downside to this mixture is that it's super sticky and can be a bit of a pain to wash from the food processor.

I made the raw brownie and topped it with the turtle and sprinkled coconut over the top. Sort of like one of those layer dessert bars! To die for!

Beware, these are addictive. I think I ate half the batch the first day I made them. Simple and delish. Kid approved!

Hey Jacqui! Yes, it's a chocolate candy with caramel and nuts - popular around Christmas here in Canada :)

These are sooo good. I only made half the recipe because I'm the only one eating it. And it will take me a while to finish these.
Thank you Laura

Brooke recently asked me if raw peanuts could be used in this recipe. I never use raw peanuts! In my opinion, truly raw peanuts taste awful.

No, they are not solid when frozen. They become kind of a weird chewy texture

Not very long I'm afraid - best to make a 1/2 batch instead

I've loved all of your recipes I've tried so far but I was wondering if you could suggest a replacement for the banana. I can't eat them.

with avocado, yes, that's a good idea Joy! and would need more sweetener also, since banana is much sweeter than avocado
