Description

Combine chocolate and banana in a delicious gluten, grain and dairy free pie crust and you get this insanely rich but guilt free dessert…

!

I prepared this pie one night when I was in the mood for something decadent, like a banana cream pie but with chocolate… At first I thought it would have been hard to achieve this goal: to make the filling without dairy and sugar seemed challenging. But to create a crust without gluten nor grains while still making it taste indulgent and buttery… well, that seemed even harder!

Fortunately, if your pantry is well equipped in order to support gluten and grain free baking, you can accomplish some amazing things in the kitchen! Just like this Banana Chocolate Pie that tastes so rich you won’t believe it’s a guilt free treat.While replacing dairy is pretty easy (I pretty much do everything with all the various coconut products, finding ways to substitute grains can be much harder, and it’s not until you get a grasp of all the incredible options do you realize that you can live without them.

Take this recipe for example. The ingredients I used to create this pie crust are really a package (I linked all the products I use in the ingredient list below) you should equip your kitchen with if you are into the grain free thing. They make life so much easier… and you won’t even feel like you are giving up other foods anymore!

And once you have your gluten and grain free essentials figured out, adding chocolate and banana is piece of cake…or should I say pie?I know, I know. It tastes much better than it looks on my photos right?

Unfortunately the day I photographed this pie I was out of fresh bananas to top my gluten free chocolate pie crust. But I promise, with that simple addition, every bite of pie will be richer and more decadent… while still being guilt free!

Enjoy your Chocolate Banana Pie and I will catch you next time with a new healthy recipe!

Love, Ambra
