Fluffy Raw Vegan Pancakes (one ingredient!)
The recipe for this fluffy banana pancakes has been evolving for quite a long time. I’ve never been a fan of the usual raw banana pancakes as they are quite hard (usually bananas are first blended into a cream and then poured on the dehydrator trays). They soften up a little bit if we fill them with filling (when they moisten up). But I didn’t want that. I wanted those fluffy, soft pancakes.
With raw cinnamon hearts slowly grew in me the idea that bananas shouldn’t be blended. I tried to mash them with a fork and with that thing for making mashed potatoes (for which I was inspired by the wonderful raw chef Alicia Ojeda). It worked better, but bananas were still releasing liquid that made the final product not exactly what it should be.
When I decided to try just chop them, wonderfully fluffy pancakes were created. They are soft, fluffy and so delicious. Just PERFECT! I love eating them with raw Nutella, and Matic loves them with coconut cream and fresh fruit (recipe below).
You can of course also spread jam on them – Mix 2 cups of dates with a cup of fresh fruit mash. This makes a wonderful jam! You can even play around with different spices and make really interesting and delicious combinations (you will find more ideas in my new e-book that contains more than 40+ low-fat raw vegan recipes).
- 3¾ cups (700 g) ripe bananas, chopped
- 1 cup (125 g) dates
- 1 cup (120 ml) water
- ½ cup (60 g) meat of a young fresh coconut
- ¼ tsp vanilla powder
- Peel the bananas and finely chop them.
- Do not mash them with a fork and do not mix them with any device. They should be chopped by hand.
- Put a non-stick sheet on a dehydrator tray (I like to use parchment paper). You will need a 4 inch (12 cm) round cake tin.
- For each pancake, you will need ¾ cup (140 g) of chopped bananas. Spread them evenly
- Dry at 115°F (46°C) for 12-18 hours.
- They will be prepared when they are soft, but dry enough so that you can easily peel them off the baking paper.
- Mix dates, water, vanilla powder and fresh young coconut meat mix in a blender.
- Spreads the cream on the pancakes and fill with fruit.
