Banacoco Pie

♬ 'Born To Die' Lana Del Ray

I wanted to create something new. Something no other blogger has done before and last night I created Banacoco pie.Yes I know it's half good and half guilty looking but desserts are not meant to be super healthy!
After trying a slice of Banacoco pie you won't go back to that other pie known as Banoffee - unless you really don't like coconuts.
2 tbsp coconut oil
220g Green & Blacks milk chocolate, 20g to one side.
150g Crunchy nut flakes
2 large ripe bananas
100g chia seeds
250ml double cream
Runny honey
1 tsp banana essence
Line the bottom of a 12cm loose base tart dish with greaseproof paper.
Melt chocolate (glass bowl suspended over boiling water) and coconut oil (small saucepan until no white bits showing). Keep some coconut oil to one side.
Whisk together and stir in crunchy nut.
Pour in tart dish.
Freeze for twenty minutes.
Melt 20g chocolate and mix in with remaining coconut oil to make coco loco sauce.
Take out tart dish and make sure your kitchen is cool, not too hot, otherwise keep it in the fridge.
Chop bananas medium width and place on top.
Drizzle honey all over bananas.
Whisk cream with 1 tsp banana essence or honey.
Spread on bananas.
Sprinkle chia seeds over the cream, stick extra bananas on top and drizzle coco loco sauce.
Remember to create not copy, originality is in all of us.
