About this recipe

All the ingredients in this banana cream pie or banoffee pie are delicious and good for you. It all starts with a crunchy layer of granola with almond butter and dates. Then, a vegan creamy banana-caramel layer is topped with fresh bananas and finished with homemade coconut whipped cream. Sounds good, right?

Food processor bowl with granola, a bowl of almond butter and another ewith maple syrup on the side.

EAsy banana cream pie layered ingredients

  • Granola, I like to use homemade granola, but use your favorite store-bought or homemade, just make sure it is not very sweet.
  • Maple or agave syrup, you could skin this ingredient if your bananas and other ingredients are very sweet.
  • Dates pitted and soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes. Save the liquid. Dates are important in the recipe to give the first layer and the caramel sauce that extra chewy texture.
  • Almond butter, use homemade or unsweetened storebought.
  • Coconut oil
  • Vanilla extract
  • A good pinch of sea salt
  • Bananas, ripe bananas. Look for ones that are just right and with no brown spots.
  • Full-fat coconut milk (cooled for over an hour or overnight in the fridge)
A bunch of bananas

How to make the vegan banana cream pie (banoffee pie)

  • For the first layer put into a food processor (affiliate link) the granola, the maple syrup, the dates, and almond butter. Pulse until a chunky crumble forms. Place the mixture in a mixing bowl until ready to use.
  • For the banana caramel. Soak the pitted dates for ten minutes in boiling water. Then put them in the food processor (affiliate link) with two tablespoons of the soaking liquid. Add the coconut oil, the almond butter, the vanilla, the salt, and the bananas. Mix until smooth.
  • For the homemade whipped cream. In a large bowl scoop, the thick white top layer from the coconut milk can. Add the maple syrup and vanilla extract and whisk until stiff peaks form. Put into the fridge until ready to use.
  • For serving. Divide the first layer of crumbles into six small glasses or jars, then do the same with the banana caramel, forming the second layer. Then, slice the other two bananas and top the banana caramel with them. Finish each individual banoffee pie with a dollop of whipped coconut cream.

Tips and tricks

  • You could have this banoffee for breakfast if you swapped the coconut whipped cream with vegan yogurt. I mean the first layer is GRANOLA.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for an hour or so, but do not save it for another day. You will not like it, this recipe for the banana cream pie is best when eaten immediately.
  • Always taste before adding more sweetener, you may find it doesn’t need it.
