Raw Almond Butter Banana Cream Pie

By • May 27, 2013 • 4 Comments



Author Notes: I love banana cream pie, especially during the summer time. There is nothing better than a cool dessert on a hot summer day. I am also pretty obsessed with almond butter and was looking for a way to create a healthier dessert. BAM! This is the best of both worlds, a creamy, nutty almond butter combined with bananas and maple syrup for a sweet filling. It all gets poured over an almond date crust that makes for an absolutely to die for dessert! misschels

Serves 2

For the crust:

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 10 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  1. For the crust, place all of the crust ingredients in a large food processor and pulse until a crumbly mixture forms.
  2. Press the crust evenly into 2 individual deep-dish casserole dishes or an ungreased dish of your choice. Set aside.

For the filling:

  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup raw, unsalted almond butter
  • 1/3 cup pure Maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened, vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  1. For the filling, place all of the filling ingredients in a large food processor and process on high until smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour the filling evenly over the crust, using a spatula to smooth it out. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 1 hour or so or until set.
  3. Garnish with banana slices and serve at slightly room temperature.

Made this tonight, and it's really delicious. There was quite a bit more crust than filling, however, and I think I may not have processed the filling enough, because it was soupy and never really set up in the freezer. But it was just delicious.

I am sooooo glad you enjoyed it! It is one of my fave desserts. :) Yes, if you don't process the filling enough that can definitely happen :)

Looking for a desert to take to a vegan potluck. This will be great. I'll try to make it in individual cups
