This is one of the simplest dishes I have ever made, and can be done – super easy, and super tasty! My son and I ate these for breakfast today, and later on I used them to make a delicious desert. Here’s the recipe:
5-6 bananas (peeled and chopped)
1 cup flax seeds (ground to powder)
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp organic vanilla extract (non-alcoholic)
Mash the bananas real well using a food processor, or do it by hand using a fork. Add the ground flax seeds, cinnamon, and vanilla, and mix real well. Again, you can use a food processor or do it by hand, whichever you prefer. Once the mixture is smooth, spread over dehydrator trays by making round disk-like shapes (like pancakes). Let dry for about 4 to 6 hours. Carefully flip over and dry for another 2 to 4 hours depending upon desired texture. For a dryer more pliable cookie-like texture dry longer. For a more moist pancake like texture dry less. Serve warm or cold -either way this pancake is full of flavor!
We ate ours by spreading coconut butter over them, and drizzling organic maple syrup Grade B with fresh blueberries. For a dessert, I let the pancakes dry a little longer to form a pliable cookie. Then I scooped my favorite raw ice cream, and drizzled raw chocolate syrup over top, adding another pancake on type to form an ice cream cookie – yummo! You could also make banana crepes by thinning the mixture a little with water or coconut water, and then spreading them thinner on the dehydrator trays. This is a super great, nutritious, and simple snack to make! Enjoy! 🙂
