Don’t be intimidated by the low and slow process of baking these sweet and gooey treats, much of that time is spent waiting while the oven does its work!
- Prep Time20 min
- Cook Time3 hr
- Total Time3 hr 20 min
- Yield10-12 Rolls
- 4 spotty bananas
- 1 cup Medjool dates (about 12)
- ½ cup water
- Optional: 1 tsp vanilla and/or a pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 120°C.
Slice the bananas lengthwise into 3 strips each.
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.
Bake for 1 hour at 120°C.
Remove from the oven and let them cool for 15-20 mins.
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.
Blend all the ingredients for the date paste.
Spread about 1 tablespoon of date paste down the length of a banana slice. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll.
Repeat with the remaining slices. You can roll the shorter pieces inside the longer strips.
Arrange all the rolls on one lined pan.
Return them to the oven for 1.5-2 hours at 120°C.
Remove from the oven. Allow to cool. Eat immediately or refrigerate for a firmer consistency. Keep leftovers in the fridge.
