Method

  • 1. Place pecans in a small bowl; cover with cold water. Stand for 1 hour, then drain.

  • 2. Meanwhile, process biscuits, coconut oil, cacao and half the dates until fine crumbs form and mixture starts to clump. Press biscuit mixture into the base and up the side of a 24cm tart tin. Refrigerate until required.

  • 3. Stir coconut sugar and the water in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil; boil for 3 minutes or until mixture reduces slightly.

  • 4. Meanwhile, whisk cornflour and coconut cream in a small bowl. Gradually stir coconut cream mixture into sugar syrup until smooth; cook, stirring, for 10 minutes or until mixture boils and thickens.

  • 5. Blend drained pecans and warm coconut mixture with remaining dates, vanilla extract and 1 banana until as smooth as possible. Spoon mixture into biscuit case; smooth surface. Refrigerate overnight.

  • 6. Thinly slice remaining bananas; arrange slices on pie. Serve pie drizzled with remaining coconut cream and sprinkled with roughly chopped nuts.
