Everybody loves a Banoffee Pie! However, a traditional Banoffee Pie is typically filled with sugar and cream and then… MORE sugar and cream. This is my healthy, sugar-free, dairy-free and completely GUILT-FREE version.

    I’m new to this website & love it!
    This is a great recipe. The tart base could be used for many types of different fillings.

    Hi 🙂

    Was wondering if you could use almonds instead of cashews? And is it essential that they are soaked?

    Thanks

    Hi Emma,
    I don’t think almonds would work well instead of cashews. Cashews give it a smooth creamy texture. It’s not essential to soak the cashews, but it helps make it more creamy. A good trick is to boil water, pour over cashews to soften for a few minutes, drain and then put them in the food processor, if you don’t have time to soak them overnight. Enjoy! xx.

    Hi Holly,
    I would substitute the almonds in the tart with sunflower seeds or buckwheat. With the cream, I would substitute the cashews with a mashed banana and reduce the milk to 1/2 cup.
    Hope that helps!

    Hi Natassa,
    The dates give the “caramel” flavour. You could possibly replace the dates with 1/4 cup maple syrup.

    Hello! I was wondering if you could suggest any substitutes for Tahini as I don’t have any available for me at the moment. Thanks 🙂

    Hi Sophia,
    You can use any type of nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew) as a substitute.
    Enjoy xx.

    I have made these twice now and they have been a massive hit! Especially with those who are usually hesitant about trying healthy, guilt free treats in fear that they won’t be tasty. Thank you for sharing 🙂 oh and they’re just so easy to make!
