Gluten Free/ Paleo/ Vegan/ Vegetarian

Chocolate Banana Pie

This is another raw dessert from my dabble with raw recipes and it is just delicious.   The bananas give the pie the sweetness and the avocado makes it creamy.  The crust is not as solid as a traditional baked one but still is very nice. 

Raw pie! Delicious!

The nutty taste combines well with the creamy filling.   This is just so simple to make…blender in one hand, ingredients in the other and voila!  Dessert!

You could make a low carb or gluten free pie cake and then use this raw filling too if you wanted a firmer pie crust…or whip up the filling for an alternative to chocolate mousse.   Raw, vegan, dairy free, gluten free…the list goes on! Just ends being delicious and met with moans that I did not make a big enough one!  This does make a small pie, double up for a larger one.

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups walnuts

5 tblspns coconut oil

pinch salt

2 Avocados

3 bananas, ripe

1/4 cup cocoa powder

Creamy goodness with no oven!

METHOD

  • Blend the walnuts, salt and 2 tblspns of the coconut oil in food processor.
  • Press into a pie dish and chill in the refrigerator.
  • Place the avocados, bananas, cocoa powder and remaining coconut oil into a blender and blitz until smooth.   You may need to scrape down the edges throughout the blitzing.
  • Spoon the filling into the pie case and chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour (over night is better if you can wait).
  • Eat and enjoy!

    Had a real busy morning cooking and trying out severa l of your recipes. I made the above and then realised (stupid me) it was not a low carb recipe! Anyway I can have a little. We found the taste quite bland but when I topped it with strawberry coulis, recipe from my daughter in Australia, it was gorgeous. I did add a little sugar and vanilla to the mix but found this made little difference. The nutty crust is delicious and I will use it for other desserts another time.
    Thank you for posting so many inspiring ideas.
