Raw, organic, real

When it comes to almond butter, besides buying organic, make sure it’s raw. Check out my post on almond butter to find more info on why I never eat roasted nuts.

Splitting the banana

The hardest part of this is slicing the bananas lengthwise. I usually use a sharp cerated knife, hold the bananas down genteelly and cut is just like I would cut a burger bun. There is another great way to separate the banana into 3 stripes, but the stripes will not be flat. The banana consists of 3 parts and with a little practice, you can split it lengthwise using just your hands. Split it straight down the middle lengthwise and it will spit into equal thirds.
Peel the banana, it is usually a little firmer on the bottom. Look for a little hole right in the center of in the bottom, push it in with you finger and the banana will start splitting lengthwise.

Broken banana pieces

It’s unavoidable to mess up couple of bananas, that’s why I only attempt to make cinnamon rolls when have more bananas than I need. The broken pieces can be frozen for banana ice cream.

no dehydrator, no problem

If you are not a raw foodie jet or/and don’t own a dehydrator, make these in the oven. I wouldn’t recommend trying to dehydrate the bananas at a dehydrating temperature in the oven. It’s a waste of energy and never works out quite well. The oven is not constructed the way a dehydrator is and doesn’t as well as a dehydrator. The banana might start to ferment if you leave it in the oven at a low temperature over night. Bake the bananas for 2-3 h at 120ºC/250ºF on reusable silicon mat/paper.


Diese Zimtschnecken sind nicht ganz durchgetrocknet und dadurch nicht haltbar. Wenn ich diese am zweiten Tag noch essen will, dann rolle ich diese auf und lasse sie im Dehydrator weitertrocknen.
