This recipe is inspired and tweaked from the Gorilla Food recipe book by Aaron Ash. This book is a keeper! I’ve made a lot of stuff out of it and enjoyed it all.

I really liked how this recipe was made without the use of sugar and sweetened solely by dates, shredded coconut and bananas. Great for anyone on a sugar free diet! (or mostly sugar free like me)

This recipe is made from all raw foods, except pumpkin because I couldn’t get any.

You will probably want to use a good quality food processor to make this, but a decent quality blender will also do the trick. It’s just painful, from my experience!

Ingredients:

Crust:

1/3 cup raw brazil nuts
1/3 cup raw pecans
1 3/4 cup coconut flakes
13 pitted dates (up to 20 if they’re small)
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla powder

Filling:

1/2 cup coconut oil
10 pitted dates
3-4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 large bananas
2 3/4 cup canned pumpkin (use raw if you can!)
1 tsp vanilla powder

Directions:

In food processor (preferably) or blender, mix all all crust ingredients until oily and almost smooth. Press or pour it evenly into 1 pie pan. It may look runny but will firm up in the fridge. Chill for a couple hours or put in the freezer for 15 minutes.

In blender, combine all filling ingredients until smooth. Pour into pan with crust and chill for a couple hours, or if you can’t wait like me put it in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Make sure to keep this one refrigerated otherwise it will become runny. Leave chilled until ready to serve.

Try it with some vanilla cashew cream or if you want it a bit sweeter some coconut palm nectar sugar!
