Banana Leathers

These fruit leathers are good plain, or you can make them with seasonings such as raw cacao, carob, or cinnamon, to taste.

INGREDIENTS | SERVES 6

  • 4 cups sliced banana
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth.

  2. Spread the mixture onto dehydrator trays with nonstick sheets. Dehydrate at 145°F for 2 hours. Turn down the temperature to 115°F and dehydrate for 8 to 12 hours.

  3. Allow the leathers to cool, about 10–15 minutes. Peel them off the dehydrator tray, cut them into squares, and roll them tightly into a cylindrical shape. If you will be storing the leathers, wrap them tightly in plastic wrap.
