During my first personal day off in months, I made a double chocolate cake!
Hot Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches
Banana and peanut butter pie - No baking needed! Make your own peanut butter for best results. Adapted from Jonsi & Alex’s Arkansas Apple Pie from their Good Heart Cookbook (go download it, it’s free and full of cool raw vegan recipes) I used banana instead, and used lesser dates as mum & dad didn’t like very sweet stuff. Ohh and I used peanut butter made from organic peanuts grown by grandma..heavenly :)
For the crust:
1 cup peanuts l 1 cup coconut l 3 - 4 pitted medjoul dates l 3 tbsp peanut butter l 1 tbsp olive oil l 1 tbsp orange zest l 1 tbsp cinnamon l
Blend all ingredients together till you get a crumbly, moist and sticky mixture. Press it into a greased pie pan. Spread a layer of peanut butter over this crust.
For the filling:
1 ripe banana l 1 cup raw almonds l 5 tbsp peanut butter l 6 pitted medjoul dates l 1 tbsp lemon zest l 1 tbsp cinnamon l Few drops of vanilla essence or contents from 1 vanilla bean l
Blend all ingredients except almonds till you get a sticky mixture. Add in the almonds and blend a little so you get crunchy bits in the filling. Spread it over the crust.
Coconut flakes, chocolate, soymilk cream.
Sprinkle and drizzle them over the pie. Let it set for a couple of hours in the fridge before serving.
Variations: Chocolate peanut butter, chocolate orange, peanut butter & pumpkin, peanut butter & berries..ummm the list is endless :)
