I have actually never had a banoffee pie in real life, nor had I ever heard of it or knew what it was until sometime last year. They were popping up all over my insta feed like smoothie bowls were going out of style. Unfortunately that never happened and I continue to be tagged in about 10 smoothie bowls a day (why?), but since then the word banoffee found its way deep into my consciousness and I’ve been waiting for the right time to break out my version.
Since I’m all about baking for people no matter the occasion, my Mom always knows she’s getting something sweet on Mother’s Day! Luckily she has a sweet tooth and never seems to mind devouring my vegan creations. This year I went less traditional and wanted to try something kinda trendy. The banoffee pie was in!
This pie has a crisp and sugary oat flour crust, a sticky creamy toffee filling, lotsa bananas, and coconut cream to top it all off. It’s highly addictive… and the perfect dessert for Mom this weekend!
