Mini banoffee pies

Are you also the type of person who really likes to eat but want to stay fit at the same time? But who said that yummy food, sweets especially have to be unhealthy? I always try to cook from whole products, not processed ingredients, do not use sugar and white flour and search for healthier alternatives.
I think this dessert can prove it. The caramel is made from dates and tamarind, not from sugar. The crust is made from oats, not flour. I also used vegan mascarpone made from coconut oil.
If you are convinced already, let’s make those pies!

Crust ingredients:
• 100g oats
• handful of walnuts, chopped
• 1 tbps chia seeds
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• pinch of salt
• 2 tbsp maple syrup
• hot water

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl and add hot water just to cover the oats. Add maple syrup and stir. Set aside for a while. The oats will soak the water.

Preheat the oven to 200C. Press around 1 tbsp of oat mass to each cupcake form. I used silicone ones.
Bake for approx. 20 minutes until crust is crispy and slightly brown.

Cream ingredients:
• 150g vegan mascarpone
• 3tbsp maple syrup

Simply mix the mascarpone with maple syrup. If you cannot get mascarpone, use vegan cream cheese.

For the caramel recipe please see my previous post:

• sliced banana
• shredded chocolate

To assemble:
Fill the crust with with the caramel. Layer slices of banana, then mascarpone cream. Sprinkle with shredded chocolate.

Keep in refrigerator if any left! : )
