Raw Banoffee Pie

I am a sucker for Banoffee Pie! I hate cake, muffins and most sweets in general.. but banoffee pie.. something about the caramel, banana and whipped cream hits my dessert spot!

Last week a friend of ours made miniature banoffee pies that were absolutely amazing, but the amount of calories I consumed (partly due to how many I ate..haha)..oh my goodness.. Well fast forward to earlier this week- I discovered an app called yummy. It consolidates thousands and thousands of recipes.. well.. a recipe for a raw banoffee pie popped up!!

We tried the recipe from Deliciously Ella last night and it tasted so good!

Serves 4

For the first layer

– 1/2 of a cup of pecans (70g)

– 1/2 of a cup of almonds (100g)

– 4 regular dates

– 2 teaspoons of honey

For the middle layer

– 2 very ripe bananas

– 2 tablespoons of almond butter

For the banana layer

– 1 banana

For the top layer

– 8 dates

– 4 tablespoons of almond butter

– 4 tablespoons of water

– 1 over-ripe banana

Consolidated ingredients needed

– 1/2 of a cup of pecans (70g)

– 1/2 of a cup of almonds (100g)

– 12 regular dates 

– 2 teaspoons of honey

– 4 very ripe bananas

– 6 tablespoons of almond butter

– 4 tablespoons of water

How to

Start by making the base. Place the nuts in a food processor and blend for a minute or two until a crumbly mix forms, then add the honey and pitted dates. (I couldn’t find the blade for my food processor so I chopped these by hand)

Fill the bottom either of several small containers or one big pie dish with a layer of this nutty mixture.

Next make the banana cream layer. Place the bananas and almond butter in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Put this on top of the nutty layer and place in the freezer for about 20 minutes to set.

While this freezes slice the layer of plain banana.

Next make the Caramel layer. Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor until smooth, if you’re mixture is too thick you may need to add more water.

After twenty minutes remove the pie from the freezer, place the layer of sliced banana over the glasses and then cover with the caramel.  Enjoy!
