Banana Nut Brittle
- Servings : 12
When the kids come home from school, they will love this crispy nut brittle that is good and nutritious. Make several batches at once and store it in a sealed container in the freezer. It will last for months.
- 2 1/2 cups pitted dates
- 8 bananas -- peeled
- 3 cups almonds -- roughly chopped
- 3 cups dried, shaved coconut
- 1/4 cup flax meal
Blend bananas, dates, and flax meal until smooth.
Stir in nuts and coconut.
Evenly spread 4 cups of mixture on a dehydrator tray lined with a teflex sheet. Score into the size and shape you want. (I like 4 x 6 to create 24 rectangles.)
Dehydrate at 105 °For 12 hours, then flip them over and continue dehydrating for another 12 hours or until crispy.
Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer for up to 4 months.
