Strawberry Banana Treats for the Kids!

There are two raw food recipe questions that come up often. One is, what do I do with the left over pulp when I make nut milks, and the second, do you have any raw food recipes for kid’s snacks. I thought I would tackle both of them with the same recipe! Using the dehydrated pulp from my almond milk, and also a combination of strawberry and banana (always a favorite of my girls) I threw together these quick little snack “cookies”. They are tasty, super healthy and your kids will love them. No artificial colors, flavors or white stuff!

You can read all about raw flaked oats here: Raw Flaked Oats
You start by dehydrating the pulp from your nut milk. I used almond.

Throw it into the blender and you get a beautiful almond flour.

Mix ingredients, spread on nonstick sheet and top with strawberries!


Strawberry Banana Treats for the Kids


  • 1 Banana
  • 1 cup Strawberries
  • 1 cup Flour From Almond Pulp (you can substitute finely ground almonds)
  • 1 cup Raw Flaked Oats
  • 1 tablespoon Agave (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 5 large strawberries, sliced thin.
  1. Place banana, strawberries, agave and coconut oil (softened) in food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Add almond flour and pulse until combined.
  3. Stir in Flaked Oats. Spread on nonstick a little less than 1/4″ thick. Score, top each square with strawberry slice.
  4. Dehydrate at 145 for 30 minutes and then 115 for 2 hours. Move to mesh screens and dehydrate until dry but not hard. You want these to be a little soft. Refrigerate.

    I have an allergy to oats, is there something I can substitute? Thanks!

      Any other flaked grain should work. Cheers!

    I do not have “flaked oats”…can I process some rolled oats in the vitamix instead? Also, I am always looking for things to use up my nut pulp. But I have been disappointed quite a few times after using up a lot of my almond flour trying various recipes…we often find they taste a bit dry, even when not dehydrated fully. How do these fare? I have not tried these yet, but plan too. Just curious before I do. Thank you for sharing…love your site!

    Those look amazing! How long and at what temperature do you dehydrate almond pulp to then make flour out of it?

    OMRF (Oh My Raw Food!) this sounds great! I’m pretty new to going raw, and I’m working on it in the winter… tough. anyways, I haven’t found a way to get the flaked oats, so is there anything i can sub in a pinch? I love your recipes, I’ve been on your site for HOURS! I swear, you are going to be the reason I’m alive, soon. I couldn’t live without your food ideas! Thank you so much for all of your hard work and relentless recipe writing, you are truly appreciated!

    Thanks for the remark, I should have checked beforehand – anyway, took care of it..

    Yann, actually, everything on the site is copyrighted. I require permission for use and also, while you can use one picture, I do request that you link to my site for the recipe. I put hours into developing recipes, making them, photographing them and then posting them. I write them for my site and while I appreciate the links, I also appreciate being asked.

    What do you substitute for nuts for a child that has nut allergies?

  8. Jade wrote on March 31, 2010

    I guess I was under the impression that any agave can not be processed without undergoing a change chemically which makes it unhealthy. Regardless, I look forward to your post about it.

    I’m so relieved to hear that! I’ve been so bummed about it. I love the taste of agave in my homemade limeade.

      I am so frustrated by this whole thing. Just because one farmer sprays broccoli with horrible pesticides, rendering them toxic does not mean that all broccoli is toxic. Think of it that way…
