This Vegan Banoffee Pie is no bake, refined sugar free, dairy free, gluten free and 100% yummy! The base is made with crushed nuts, dates and coconut oil. The caramel is made from dates and is super sweet and gooey (I could eat it on it's own it's so good!) And the cream on top is coconut cream, which I absolutely love as I'm impressed every time I make it with how rich and creamy it is. Vegan Banoffee Pie is the perfect treat for Veganuary, or anytime of year!
How to make Vegan Banoffee Pie
To make the base use a food processor to blitz together the almonds, pecans, dates and hazelnuts. Pour into a mixing bowl and add the melted coconut oil, then press the mixture into a loose bottomed tart tin lined with cling film.
To make the date caramel, put the dates, almond milk, maple syrup and coconut oil into a pan and boil it for 3 minutes. Let it cool for a bit, then whizz it into a puree with a hand blender. Then spread the date caramel into the crust.
Slice the bananas and brushed them with lemon juice to stop them from browning, then arranged them neatly on top of the caramel. For the coconut cream, whisk together the coconut milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract until smooth. Dollop it over the bananas, then grate some dairy free dark chocolate over the top.

Looks amazing Kat! I was planning to make a banoffee pie recipe myself but you beat me to it and your recipe is really really good, so all I can do now is pin it:)
Thank you Monika! I'd love to see your version of Banoffee Pie too!
What an interesting base and a great looking pie. Just read from AHA in their new fat guidelines that coconut oil should be avoided just as butter or other fatty animal products. Just when I started to use it... Thanks for sharing your pie with Fiesta Friday.
Thank you Judith! I always say, everything in moderation!

Banoffe pie is my favourite and I love using date caramel and coconut cream so could eat this whole thing happily! #freefromfridays
Thank you Emma! They are two of my favourites as well 🙂
Banoffee pie is without a doubt my all time favourite dessert so I'll certainly be giving this a try.
I hope you enjoy it Simone!
This looks amazing! I'm so impressed it's got no refined sugar in. I love banoffee pie but often find it a bit too sweet so this would probably be perfect for me.
I think you would love this then Corina!
Now that's vegan dessert I would actually eat! The crust and caramel looks delicious and I love coconut milk whipped cream.
Thanks Lily! I hope you give it a try!
