Banana bread heaven! I made this banana bread just because it's the ingredients I had on hand. The banana was looking VERY ripe so I just had to do something with it. : ) It came out perfectly! I put it into mini bread loaf cups I had, but it would be perfect as banana muffins as well. It's really moist and sweet,...

Recipe Directions

Combine oats, almonds, and any spices in a bowl.

Whisk together flax seed and water (as if it were an egg, put your muscle into it)

Add to flour mixture.

Add banana and mix well.

Shape into a square about ½ inch thick or desired size. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for about 4 hours and flip. Dehydrate for another 6 hours or until desired consistency.

I put it into mini bread loaf cups I had, but it would be perfect as banana muffins as well. It's really moist and sweet, with a little crunch because I didn't grind the almonds all the way down. You could definitely add some walnuts, raisins, or whatever else to make it even better! It was super easy to make, maybe took about five minutes to put the ingredients together! Next time I would definitely double, triple, or quadruple the recipe. Lol. I'm sure it will freeze great. I'm also going to try using more oat groats versus almonds. The oat groats I used were sprouted and then dried, but regular oat groats should work just fine.

sv3's Review

RawNana Bread

4 out of 5

I'm afraid I've still not got around to buying oat groats so I haven't been able to. :-(

Wonder if i could sub the groats for something else - buckwheat maybe?

Thanks for the nudge though as will try to get my ass in gear and sort something out. :-)

Have you tried it yet sv3? It really is one of my favorite raw recipes, with cooler weather coming, it's going to be so comforting. Yum.

jan

a dehydrator pulls the moisture out of things at a very LOW temperature

which is supposed to keep the enzymes alive as opposed to higher heat which renders them inert and dead

the best dehydrator (imho) is the excalibur

the temp range goes from about 90-180 or so (i could get up and look at mine to see but not going to right now)

it's a fab tool to dry sprouted nuts/seeds

make warm 'raw cheeses' (nut or veg based)

and other delicious treats like kale chips and raw cookies and bread (i make them grainfree)

or flax crackers

the list goes on :)

So - is dehydrate not the same as cooking? What does it do and how is it acceptable as raw food. Sorry totally new and although I am not vegan or vegetarian we are trying to go at least 80% raw as a preventative health strategy

Sounds lovely! I've been wanting to get some raw oat groats so will make this once I get them.
