Banana Cinnamon Rolls

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 180 minutes
  • Total Time: 200 minutes
  • Yield: 10 -12 rolls

Ingredients

  • 4 spotty bananas
  • Cinnamon

Date Paste

  • 1 cup Medjool dates (about 12)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Optional: 1 tsp vanilla and/or a pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250F
  2. Slice the bananas lengthwise into 3 strips each (see tips in the post and watch the video for technique).
  3. Lay out the slices on 2 baking trays lined with parchment paper. Do not overcrowd. I recommend 6 slices per tray. If you have any smaller strips that broke, lay them out too.
  4. Bake for 1 hour at 250F.
  5. Remove from the oven and let them cool for 15-20 mins.
  6. Gently run a finger or dull knife under each slice to release it from the pan. Flip them over so the side with more moisture is facing upwards.
  7. Blend all the ingredients for the date paste.
  8. Spread about 1 tablespoon of date paste down the length of a banana slice. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll.
  9. Repeat with the remaining slices. You can roll the shorter pieces inside the longer strips.
  10. Arrange all the rolls on one lined pan.
  11. Return them to the oven for 1.5-2 hours at 250F.
  12. Remove from the oven. Allow to cool. Eat immediately or refrigerate for a firmer consistency. Keep leftovers in the fridge.
