Banana Pie (Vagan)

Was bumbling around the kitchen trying to come up with a recipe to use the last of my bananas and might have just whipped up a new favorite. I always turn back to Minimalist Bakers raw cheesecake recipe as a foundation, but today I added a few ingredients to make this outstanding (and so so easy) Banana Pie. 

 

For the crust:

  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/4 old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup of pitted dates
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax seed mixed with 2 tbsp warm warm. Let sit for 5 mins)

Add the almonds and the oats to a food processor. Blend until fine, about 30 seconds. Add the dates and blend until combined. Move mixture into a bowl and fold in flax egg. Line a 9 inch pie pan with parchment paper and cooking spray. Press crust mixture into the bottom of the dish and bake in a 300 degree oven for 30 mins. 

For the filling:

  • 2 cups of cashews, soaked overnight, or quick soak * (soak in a dish with boiling water for 1 hr)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 small banana

Blend all ingredients in a food processor. Add to your pie dish once it is cool. Put in the fridge for at least an hour to set. Top with sliced bananas.
