Raw Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

We have been able to purchase bananas at the farmers market at an amazing price, so we are looking for recipes. There are many variations of these using nuts as the dough or fruit, using nuts, fruit, oil and/or water in the filling. We made our own variation to keep the fat content low. Serves 2

Dough ingredients:
4 large ripe bananas
1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon

Slice the banana into thirds lengthwise. (The first banana i peeled, then sliced. The remaining 3 were sliced peeled and then removed the peel.)
Sprinkle cinnamon on the slices
Dehydrate for 6-8 hours, still pliable.

Filling ingredients: serves 4
1 cup pitted dates
1/4-1/2 cup water
2 TBS crispie pecans
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions: Blend until smooth or desired consistency

Leaving the banana slices on the dehydrator sheets, apply the filling to the "dough" and roll. With the rolls standing, dehydrate another 6 -8 hours. Serve warm.
