Banoffee Pie

Posted May 25 2011 12:00am

This Banoffee Pie recipe was created by our in-house raw chef and teacher, Nina Dench, who as many of you know by now has a real talent for creating delicious raw desserts and other sweet stuff. Having tried this recipe myself (and made it) I can vouch for its complete scrumminess – it even wowed a junk-food eating teen, and we know how tricky that can be!

Equipment: Nut/coffee mill and Blender.

Serves: 8-10

TO MAKE THE BASE

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups oat groats – blended to a fine powder
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon almond butter
  • Pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. In large bowl mix ingredients together.
  2. Place ingredients in bottom of dish and pat down using hands or spatula.
  3. Slice banana circles onto base. Use 3-4 bananas.

TO MAKE THE TOFFEE

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt

  1. Mix together until smooth. Pour over base and bananas.

TO MAKE THE CREAM TOPPING

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • Maple syrup to sweeten (optional)

RAW COACH'S TOP TIPS:

  • Shop bought oat groats are highly unlikely to be raw (they will have been steamed to clean and preserve them), but raw oat groats go rancid very quickly. As oats are a great health food – low in fat, high in nutrition, they are a great ingredient to use if you are not hung up on being strictly raw.
  • Decorate your Banoffee Pie with dried or fresh banana rings and/or grated raw chocolate. Yum!
