Guest Post – Jonny Fresh + Pecan Hazelnut Danish + A Giveaway!!

Raw Vegan Pecan Hazelnut Danishes with Strawberry Banana Filling and Lemon Glaze from Jonny Fresh on Canned-Time.com I found Jonny on Pinterest this spring and have admired his quest for raw, fresh food recipes ever since.  His creativity and talent for combining wonderfully fresh flavors is magical.  You can see some of his work in this Guest post he did for me along with the recipe for his beautifully delicious Pecan Hazelnut Danishes.  Enter to win one of Jonny’s new E-Book, “Raw Food Made Fun, Easy and Beautiful” as well.   A World Wide Giveaway!  Yeah!!   Raw Vegan Pecan Hazelnut Danishes with Strawberry Banana Filling and Lemon Glaze from Jonny Fresh on Canned-Time.com   So Here’s Jonny!   Raw Vegan Pecan Hazelnut Danishes with Strawberry Banana Filling and Lemon Glaze from Jonny Fresh on Canned-Time.com   Raw Vegan Pecan Hazelnut Danishes with Strawberry Banana Filling and Lemon Glaze    Before creating a dish for the great honor that this guest post is, I asked my facebook fans what kind of recipes they were looking for. One woman said she wanted something she could serve her kids for breakfast. It immediately caught my eye out of all the answers, and so I started scheming. I wanted to do something that hadn’t been done before. I only found one Raw Danish throughout the whole interweb, and they looked more like crackers. These Danishes are thick, chewy, and most importantly, perfect for kids. Especially ones that are accustomed to traditional grain heavy western breakfasts. Really, I made this recipe thinking of myself as a kid ;)     Raw Vegan Pecan Hazelnut Danishes with Strawberry Banana Filling and Lemon Glaze from Jonny Fresh on Canned-Time.com   I grew up on lucky charms, ego waffles and aunt jemima doused pancakes. Then transitioned to the full english breakfast when I took cooking into my own hands. It took me a long time to give up the custom of eating a very heavy, grain-filled breakfast. I had deeply ingrained in myself the belief that I needed a big breakfast to go about my day in any sort of productive manner. The irony was that the complete opposite is now true. The lighter my breakfast the more productive my day tends to be these days. However, when I was transitioning to raw I still needed that heavy breakfast, mentally, and I settled for a nearly identical raw granola every day for months on end. If only I had the know how and tools to make these bad boys back then.     Raw Vegan Pecan Hazelnut Danishes with Strawberry Banana Filling and Lemon Glaze from Jonny Fresh on Canned-Time.com   These Danishes are a nice balance between sweetness and savory that is quite typical of western breakfasts, particularly of the pastry variety. They’re not fluffy, like traditional Danishes are, but alas, I have yet to figure out how to make a raw fluffy pastry. If you know how, please do share in the comments. They are however, really, really, delicious, and completely satisfy that craving for a heavy breakfast that still pops up in my life.   Enjoy!   Raw Vegan Pecan Hazelnut Danishes with Strawberry Banana Filling and Lemon Glaze from Jonny Fresh on Canned-Time.com

Ingredients
  1. Danish
  2. 1 ¼ cup Pecans (soaked & dehydrated)
  3. 1 ¼ cup Hazelnuts (soaked & dehydrated)
  4. ½ cup Psyllium Husk
  5. 3 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  6. ½ tsp Salt
  7. ½ cup Dried Figs soaked in ½ cup Water for 2 hours
  8. 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  9. ½ cup Young Coconut Meat
  10. ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
  11. 1 tbsp Coconut Water
  12. Filling
  13. ½ cup Young Coconut Meat
  14. ½ cup Strawberries
  15. 2 tbsp Liquid Sweetener of Choice
  16. ¼ cup Chopped Banana
  17. 1 Vanilla Bean
  18. ½ tsp Lemon Juice
  19. Thinly Sliced Strawberries
  20. Glaze
  21. ½ cup Young Coconut Meat
  22. 1 tbsp Liquid Sweetener of Choice
  23. 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  24. A Pinch of Salt
Instructions
  1. Blitz Pecans and Hazelnuts for Danish in Food Processor until you get a meal consistency.
  2. Mix thoroughly in a big bowl with Nutritional Yeast, Psyllium Husk and Salt.
  3. Blend all other Danish Ingredients in a blender until smooth.
  4. Add liquid mix to dry mix and stir until you've got malleable dough.
  5. Form into little Danish sized oval “boats” with your hands on the mesh screen of a dehydrator tray. Having a groove in the middle is important as the Filling is quite liquid and will spill out if the Danish is too flat. The way to form them is to make the ovals first and then using a spoon and your thumbs, carefully pushing a groove down in the middle. You should get around 7-8 boats that are each around 4 inches long, 2.5 inches wide and 1-1.5 inches high.
  6. Put in dehydrator at 115 Fahrenheit for 6-8 hours.
  7. Blend all filling ingredients until smooth and creamy.
  8. Pour filling into boats and top with thinly sliced strawberries.
  9. Blend all glaze ingredients, pour into piping bag or icing syringe and glaze Danishes.

  1. The Vegan 8

    Wow, you made those Danishes look so gorgeous Angela!! I love the photos and drizzle on too. Sounds like an amazing book too and you are right, I’ve never seen a raw Danish before, but it looks delicious!

  2. Shari

    My favorite raw recipes are salad dressings. Strawberry basil dressing and orange poppyseed dressing are 2 of my favorites.

  3. An Unrefined Vegan

    I’ve just recently “found” Jonny via Pinterest and he creates some truly mouthwatering raw recipes. So nice to see him featured here with this decadent-looking, healthy danish. I cringe when I see “real” danishes – white flour, tons of sugar, that horrible drizzle on top with more sugar! Thanks for sharing, Jonny, and best of luck with your ebook!

    Worldwide you say? Count moi IN :) These certainly look yumalicious but it’s 3C outside, Brunhilda is cranking out the delicious wafting warmth and I am not inclined to munch on cold things at the moment. All of my spidey senses are pointing me in the direction of hot dhal, spicy rice and delicious soup. Come summer and I am SO going to make these (especially if I win that book ;) )
