Banoffee Tart

I always buy my bananas in bulk from Springhaven Meadows as they sell local spray free bananas, and I usually freeze them or make a breakfast loaf. I already had a tray full of frozen bananas so I decided to experiment, making a delicious banana muffin recipe & banoffee tart recipe!

Here is the recipe I made for the banoffee tart.

Base:

For the base you have 2 options, raw or cooked. Cooked gives it that caramelised chewy texture and raw, well it's raw & delicious.

  • 70g soft grass fed butter (or organic coconut oil for raw option)
  • 1/2 cup or 90g organic pitted dates (can soak in boiling water first to make dates softer)
  • 50g organic desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup spray free almonds

Blend all ingredients into a sticky crumble mixture. Press into a prepared pie/tart dish and cook in oven at approx. 150 degrees until golden brown. This should only take 5-10mins. The remove from oven & let cool while you prepare the filling.

(For the raw version, omit the butter and use 70g organic coconut oil instead. Press mixture into prepared pie/tart dish and place in freezer while you make the filling)

 

Filling:

  • 1/2 cup or 90g organic pitted dates
  • 1 can organic coconut cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • dash of pink salt
  • 1 tbs organic coconut sugar
Heat all ingredients in a pot on medium to low heat until dates start to dissolve and mixture starts to thicken (should take about 20mins). Then using a stick blender, blend until smooth.
Let mixture cool slightly then blend in 3 small bananas. If you need to thicken mixture more, blend in 1 tsp of guar gum. Pour over tart base and place in freezer to set.
Chocolate topping:
This is the easiest part! You can either just melt chocolate and drizzle (or pour) it over tart. I melted 90% dark chocolate with some cacao butter to give it that extra creamy, deep flavour. You can do this step just before serving or pour chocolate over tart once the filling has set and return it to the freezer. If you do this, the chocolate will crack when you go to cut it, but hey, chocolate is chocolate right!
Serving suggestion:
Serve with some freshly sliced banana :)
