Raw Banoffee Pie

Banoffee Pie is a classic British dessert and one of my favourite all time desserts. Crumbly biscuit base, rich caramel centre topped with sliced banana and fresh cream…what’s not to like? No one can resist a good slice of banoffee pie! 

Muscle Food sent me a selection of natural nut butters and some coconut oil along with a few other awesome baking ingredients so I couldn’t wait to get in the kitchen and whip up something delicious, and since I seem to be in a raw dessert frenzy I thought why not make a simple raw desserts full of nut butter yumminess!

At the moment I seem to be enjoying creating raw desserts more than baking. For someone like me who loves baking that’s a big statement! They’re just so much easier to get right and you can play around with the recipe, adding ingredients as you go along until you get it right. It’s quite hard to fail a raw dessert, unlike with baking where things often don’t come out the way I intended which can get very frustrating.

The caramel part of a banoffee pie is typically made using condensed milk which is boiled in the can for 2 hours to transform it into a dense, smooth and sticky caramel. The main ingredient in my raw version of caramel is dates – they’re naturally sweet with a hint of caramel making them the perfect for any caramel based recipe.

Dates are one of my favourite things to add to desserts and when baking. They’re a good source for things like iron, potassium, magnesium, manganese, vitamin B6 and are high in fibre so they’re digested and broken down into sugars slowly. To add some richness to the caramel I added some smooth, natural cashew butter and coconut oil, yum!

For the whipped cream topping, I’m using a can of coconut milk. If you leave a can of full fat coconut milk to chill in the fridge overnight (the longer the better!) part of the milk will solidify and that’s what we’ll be using to create the cream topping of this raw banoffee pie. You can add as much or as little cream as you like or you can leave it out all together for a lighter version, but I don’t think any banoffee pie is complete without a little but of cream! It complements the sweetness of the caramel and banana so well! 

This raw banoffee pie is also vegan, dairy free, gluten free and refined sugar free.
