Tools:

Food processor

Dehydrator

 

Ingredients:

2 ½ cups Walnuts

1 cup Psyllium husk

1/2 cup Ground flax seed

6-8 Very ripe bananas

1 cup Fresh dates, pitted and finely chopped

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 tsp Nutmeg

1 tsp organic Vanilla essence

pinch of celtic salt

1/4 cup Maple syrup or sweetener of choice

1/3 cup Water

 

Method:

1. Process 2 cups of the walnuts in the food processor until they look like slightly chunky  flour.

2. Remove from food processor and place into a big bowl.

3. Add psyllium husk, flaxseed, remainder of walnuts roughly chopped, dates and salt to the bowl.

3. Place banana, water, spices, and maple syrup into the food processor and process.

4. Mix the banana mixture into the big bowl of dry ingredients.  Mix everything together with spoon.

5. Add more water (1/8 cup) if necessary to get dry, dough like texture that you can shape into small loaves.

6. Shape into 4-5 small loaves.

7. Place directly onto dehydrator tray.  Dehydrate at 145 degrees for 1 hour – then reduce temperature to 110 degrees.  Dehydrate for another 6-8 hours or so.

Tastes best if eaten right out of the dehydrator and thinly sliced.  These don’t last long so if not eaten within a day or so, store in the freezer.
