Dates and Figs Fudge
Every time I have too many ripe bananas I make cinnamon rolls and banana ice cream.
Everyone who is into sweet baked goods will love these raw vegan cinnamon rolls. These buttery buns are a perfect treat that helps to forget the unhealthy regular cinnamon buns. This hight carb and gluten-free dessert is perfects for both kids and adults.
We only use whole healthy ingredients to make this dessert and minimally process them.
These cinnamon rolls are sweet and gooey, with a buttery tastes from the almond butter with a strong hint of cinnamon.
It only calls for 3 simple and widely available ingredients. Bananas, almond butter and cinnamon. Even the waiting time is quite long, the dehydrator will do it gladly overnight. All the prep is done within 10 minutes.
Banana cinnamon rolls are super popular within the raw food community, everyone makes them, with a slightly different spin. The very basic recipe only calls for bananas and cinnamon, common addition are young coconut meat, nut butters, dates, raisins, vanilla, coconut sugar, or date sugar. Usually, the recipes are made of of not more than 3 ingredients.
The banana should be spotty with no green ends. The bananas should be overripe, no soft brown spots.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Who doesn’t love apple pies? And this raw vegan version of an apple pie is not just delicious, it’s even healthy. A super healthy no bake apple pie.
Raw vegan cakes and pies are not as hard to make as baked once, but still take quite some time to prep. Here, I wanna share a quick and easy everyday raw vegan apple pie recipe that you will wanna make every day and it will not eat up much of your time. It’s one of these recipes that are faster to make than to eat.
You definitely don’t have to be a raw food chef or to buy expensive exotic superfoods to create a dessert you can enjoy daily. The very first homemade apple pie I remember eating at my 3rd cousin’s. She baked when I visited her family many years ago. It was, as cakes usually are, a vegetarian cake and being a vegetarian back then, I tried a slice. She advertised it as the most effortless and quick recipe she had ever baked. I took her around 40 minutes to wipe it off. I can’t quite remember the taste of it, but it was a fluffy dough with a thin layer of apples on top. I ate up the apples, they were the best. No wonder my fav apple pie nowadays is made without the dough entirely.
This pie is basically just the filling of an apple pie, which is the best part of a pie for me anyways. Surprisingly, I completely lost my passion for apples over the years are rarely eat any, but this apple pie convinces me to eat 3-4 apple in one sitting every time I make it. This apple pie is what it is, it doesn’t pretend to be anything else, anything better, anything fancy. It is simple and honest recipe and has the potential to become a stable dessert or even to replace lunch.

Dates are a healthier sugar alternative. It is better than agave or honey. Not that we are considering honey as a possible food, it’s a product bees invested hard labor in to have food for themselves and who are we to steel it, right?! Back to the date, dates are the best.
