This pie has kind of changed my life. Things are sweeter and that little bit more joyful because of this pie. It’s magic. Magic pie.
Firstly, it’s crazy yummy, truly. It satisfies every dessert craving I have (as I make a chocolate version also – that’s coming up!). Secondly, it’s beyond simple to assemble – no baking required. Oh, and did I mention it’s healthy? Well that’s just the icing on the pie, a pie that is uplifting and energising. That’s my kind of pie.
I have been enjoying variations of this simply scrumptious pie for the last couple of months, and I feel it’s high time I shared my favourite versions with you. First up, we have banana – banana and nut, what a dreamy duo. Feel free to mix up the nut combination. Add a little raw cacao powder to the crust if you wish, it’s a lovely addition.
I quite fancy some pie love in my life. I hope this dreamy, chilled banananut pie makes your life that little bit sweeter too.
