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


Step 1

Blend bananas, dates, and flax meal until smooth.

Step 2

Stir in nuts and coconut.

Step 3

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.)

Step 4

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.
