Method:


For The Base:

  1. Add the ground almonds, oat flour and salt to a bowl and mix.
  2. To that, add the melted coconut oil and honey. Mix until you have a well combined, crumbly mixture.
  3. Transfer into an 8" cake tin lined with parchment paper. Press down firmly using your fingers or the back of a spoon.
  4. Leave to chill in the freezer while you make the filling (about 30 minutes)

For The Filling:

  1. Drain the dates and add them to a food processor or powerful blender.
  2. To that, add the cashew butter, coconut oil, milk, salt and vanilla.
  3. Blend until you have a smooth, velvety caramel like mixture - how long you need to blend for will depend entirely on how powerful your food processor or blender is.
  4. Take the base out of the freezer and top with the caramel layer. Smooth down using a spatula or the back of a spoon.
  5. Arrange the banana slices on top.
  6. Place back in the freezer and leave to chill for a few hours until it's set.

To Make The Whipped Coconut Cream:

  1. Open the can of coconut milk that has been chilling overnight in the fridge.
  2. There should be a thick layer of solid coconut cream on top (this is why you must use full fat coconut milk). Scoop out only the solid part and add to a bowl.
  3. Beat for a few seconds using a hand held mixer until creamy and fluffy. For some extra flavour, feel free to add some vanilla and/or sweetener.
  4. Take your banoffee pie out of the freezer 20-30 minutes before you want to serve to soften a little.
  5. Top with the whipped coconut cream then sprinkle some chocolate shavings or nuts on top. Enjoy!
