Raw vegan banana crepe recipe

These crepes are super delicious – an absolute must-try! They do require a dehydrator, but for those of you who live in a hot climate, you can even dehydrate them out in the sun…or if you live in a cold country – put them on top of a radiator (hey I’m all for experimenting!).

Ingredients:

For the crepes:

  • 6 ripe bananas or more
  • Optional: 1/2 tsp. cinnamon powder

For the filling:

  • Your choice of berries or cut fruit. I used mango, strawberries, blueberries and bananas

For the sauce:

  • See: Berry jam recipe
  • Or you can use a more creamy sauce, for example: a vanilla cashew cream, peanut butter with maple syrup or even just mix some coconut milk with your favourite sweetener and that’s it!

How to make the banana crepes:

  • Blend the bananas in a blender until smooth. Don’t add water but feel free to add some cinnamon powder if you like.
  • Spread the mixture onto a non-stick dehydrator sheet, making sure it’s about 0.5cm thick so it doesn’t break when it’s done.
  • Put into the dehydrator for about 6-10 hours at 42ºC. For the first hour you can put the dehydrator at 60ºC and then lower it – it takes some time for the food to warm up so it will still technically be raw, but it will get ready faster.
  • When that’s done, cut the fruit that you like and prepare the sweet sauce according to the recipe.
  • Wrap together and enjoy.

Practical notes:

  • To store the wraps, roll them up in between baking sheets. Don’t leave them on the dehydrator sheets, they will be difficult to take off after a day (if that happens, just dehydrate them again for 30 minutes).
  • Don’t keep the crepes in the fridge.
  • If you over-dried them and they went too hard – don’t worry! Either leave them out for a day for them to naturally soak up the moisture in the air, or spray some water on them to soften them up.
