If you are looking for an easy recipe for healthy and delicious pie you are in the right place. Who likes complicated recipes, especially if you have no time after work/school? You know the answer. I don’t like to spend too much time baking and get boring when the recipe has hundred ingredients. Sometimes after hours spent in the kitchen you end up with something what doesn’t look edible at all and you are exhausted by cleaning the mess. At the end of the day you always promise yourself that you won’t make that mistake again and next time will pop in to the nearest shop to buy something sweet instead.
Since I had given birth to the most handsome boy in the world I started to care about the time and ingredients even more. I try to prepare nourish food and minimalise the time of preparation. Andthis is the reason why I found out this beauty!Banoffee pie is one of my favourite but the ones I tried were too sweet and full of sugar. You don’t want to feed your body with sh*t – have some respect to yourself. The main ingredients in this recipe are bananas and almonds. Bananas are full of vitamin B6 and magnesium. They play an important role in preserving memory and boosting your mood. Almonds are good for your brain and its development. Sounds good? Get ready!
You need only few things to get started:
20cm baking tin
200g almonds soaked in cold water overnight
30g coconut oil
200g dates (soaked in hot water if hard)
1 tbsp of water
pinch of cinnamon
2 sliced bananas
can of coconut milk (chilled in the fridge)
2 pieces of dark chocolate (grated)
Preheat oven to 180’C and prepare the baking tin. Blend your base ingredients and spoon the mixture into the bottom and sides. I like to leave some whole nuts in it so it is more crunchy. Put in the oven and after 10 minutes take it out and put aside to cool down. Don’t worry if the crust is still soft after is out from the oven. Will harden while cooling down.
Meanwhile whip the solid part of your coconut milk with hand mixer and put in the fridge. Make sure that you use only creamy solid coconut part and leave the rest of it (water) in the can. Otherwise your whipped cream will be runny. You can use the leftovers to make pancakes or smoothie next day.
Blend the dates for the smooth paste. Spread the vegan caramel evenly over the base and slice your bananas. Place them on the top and cover with whipped coconut milk. Sprinkle with grated dark chocolate.
