Have your Cake and Eat it Too!

I’m not much of a dessert person. But I have to say I love this pie. It’s not very sweet, rich or overbearing which I like. And it is full of complete protein, essential fatty acids, fiber, and many vitamins and minerals. You’ve got to try it.

Raw Banana Coconut Pie

Crust:

1 cup fresh or soaked dried dates

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup ground flaxseed

1/2 cup hemp protein

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1 tbsp grated fresh ginger

1 tsp lemon juice

Filling:

2 bananas

1 pear

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup macadamia nuts

1/4 cup hemp protein

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1 tbsp grated fresh ginger

Topping:

1/2 cup macadamia nuts

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1/4 tsp cinnamon

Make crust by putting all ingredients in a food processor and processing until dough like. Remove and spread out into a pie plate; pack down.

Put all filling ingredients into food processor and process until creamy. Spread out evenly in pie crust.

Put topping ingredients in food processor; pulse a few times. Spread on top of pie filling.

Refrigerate until cool and firm, about 1 hour.

Makes 8 servings

Sometimes I put this pie in the freezer and defrost it when I want it. It still taste just as good!
