Hello October!! This last couple of weeks the weather in UK has been amazing, therefore I’m not getting into the autumn spirit as yet. I don’t want to see the leaves turning and falling, all I want is a big piece of nice refreshing ice cake that will take me back to summer. Yes, I have gone a little gooey for my latest obsession called Banana and Peanut butter cake and so will you.
Raw peanut butter and banana cake
It’s not just the sweet, thick, creamy and smooth “bananapeanuty” filling that I love about this cake, but also the ingredients. All of them are raw and in their most natural state. You should try and incorporate more raw foods in your diet. Raw food diet can clear up headaches and allergies, boost immunity and memory, and improve arthritis and diabetes. Enough of me preaching, let’s move on with the recipe. Oh, just so you know I make my own almond milk and peanut butter , very easy and far more delicious than shop-bought versions. I will post recipes for both soon.
Raw peanut butter and banana cake
Recipe:
Base
1 cup gluten free oats
1 cup of almond, blended to a flour
1 tbsp. raw cacao powder
2 tbsp. of brown rice syrup or any of your preferred sweetener
2 tbsp. almond milk or any of your favourite milk

Filling
2 cups peanut butter (I made my own smooth one, but crunchy peanut butter works even better)
3 large ripe bananas
2 tsp vanilla extract or 2 vanilla pods
1/4 cup of brown rice syrup or any of your preferred sweetener
1/4 cup raw coconut oil

Chocolate sauce
1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk
handful of pitted dates,
1 tbsp. of raw cacao
Blend milk and dates in blender, then transfer to a pot and simmer for 5 min. Add cacao, let bubble for another 2 mins and your chocolate sauce is ready!

Process:
Add the base ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer the mixture into the cake pan and press down firmly making sure it is even everywhere. Pop in the fridge while you making the filling.
Place the filling ingredients in a food processor and pulse until you have nice and smooth mixture. Pour the topping over the crust and freeze pie until solid for at least 4-6 hours.
The next day make the chocolate sauce and pour over the pie. Crush some walnuts and sprinkle on the top. Store pie in the freezer and thaw for 10-15 minutes before eating. This pie is the best ever, honestly you will not eat just once piece!

Much love,
Hedi

    Your raw peanut butter and banana cake looks awesome and I am sure it is tasty. But as someone who is very pressed for time, I must make an observation. People want to eat healthy; however today is complicated and time is of the essence. Generally, I do not make recipes that call for a large number of ingredients, especially ones that I do not use regularly. I will have to buy more than I need to use at one time and the rest will get bad or spoil. That being said, I am tempted to try these.
