There’s nothing like ooey, gooey cinnamon rolls in the morning. The ooeyness and the gooeyness of these raw, mouth-watering confections is courtesy of three simple ingredients: bananas, dates, and cinnamon. It really simplicity itself. But don’t let the simplicity fool you. These things are rich.

The cinnamon and dates do an amazing job of recreating the taste and texture of traditional cinnamon rolls. Obviously, using bananas instead of flour makes for a different experience, but you’d be surprised just how sweet and rich these things are. Make sure to use soft, ripe bananas. The slightly harder taste of green bananas subtracts from the overall effect, and they’re harder to roll without breaking. So wait until you start seeing some brown spots.

The biggest challenge with these simple cinnamon rolls is to keep yourself from eating them before they’re ready. It takes a while for these to dehydrate to the proper consistency. Remember: patience is a virtue.

Ingredients

Dehydrator
  1. Slice the bananas vertically in 3 pieces each then sprinkle the bananas with cinnamon and place them on a dehydrator at 115F for 6-8 hours.
  2. While the bananas dehydrate, create your caramel. Add all of the dates into a high speed blender with a dash of cinnamon, optional vanilla, and ¼-½ cup of water, or as much as needed to create a thick paste.
  3. Once the bananas are able to be handled without breaking, but not completely dry, take slices of and spread the caramel along them. Roll the banana with caramel around itself to form a roll.* Top the rolls with more date caramel if desired. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon
  4. Place back in the dehydrator for 6 hours until warmed through.
Oven
  1. I have not yet tried this recipe in an oven, but this is what I would do if I needed to use one.
  2. Preheat your oven to the lowest heat possible.
  3. Prepare the recipe exactly how it is above, and when placing the bananas into the oven, keep the door cracked open with a wooden spoon for the moisture to be able to escape. Since the heat may be higher, I would do 4-6 hours for the initial dry, then 4-6 for the second. Adjust times as needed.
Nutritional Information (per serving)

Note: I cut with the curve of the banana, not against it. Since some of the bananas are in a C-shape, cut along the banana drawing a C shape so that you get a straight instead if curved piece. You can roll several slices around one another to get thicker cinnamon rolls. I purchased the Royal Treatment sampler box from 7Hot Dates. You can even take whole cinnamon sticks and grind them in a high speed blender to make your own fresh cinnamon powder for this recipe.
