I was having a hardcore craving for banana bread, and this satisfied it nicely. It’s lightly sweet with a nice smooth banana taste. I used golden flax seeds, and the coloring was very reminiscent of “real” banana bread. My husband thinks putting in chunks of dates would make it even better.

Recipe Directions

1. Grind up your seeds and dump them in a big bowl.

2. Stick the bananas in the food processor, along with the sweetener of your choice, cinnamon, and vanilla. (I am not sure cinnamon is raw, but it's just a small pinch.)

3. Mush everything up real good and dump that mixture into your bowl with the ground up seeds.

4. Stir very well and dehydrate for 12 hours or longer, depending on whether you want more of a “cookie” or bread.

I would also try substituting hemp seed for flaxseed for a nutty flavor, and adding chopped walnuts. Banana-walnut bread is fabulous!

Girl, why is nori not raw if it is a sea vegetable (the black nori, not the green)/

Sorry to be a n00b, but do I need a dehydrator and if not, how do I dehydrate the bread?

I've yet to try it myself, but my husband is loving this. I made it really thin, like crackers opposed to bread. After I taste it, I'll decide whether or not to make it thicker next time. Thanks for the great recipe!

I make something very similar using almond meal. It really has that bread-like texture.

I made it with 5 bananas and it still tasted like it needed more. I want to try it with hemp seeds next time.

Agave nectar is a substitute for honey, etc. Looks like honey or syrup. Comes from a cactus plant. Very good. I use it for everything. The raw agave says raw on it but if you can't find the raw just use the reg. agave. It comes in light or amber (dark) and also blue agave, etc. Look in your health food stores or gocery store depending on where you live. Wild Oats, Co-Op, Wincos, Rosaeurs, etc all carry it. I don't like to use honey because it does hurt the bees and agave is more eco-friendly and is also safe for diabetics, too.
