Ingredients

Base

  • 1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour use plain flour if not gluten-free
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 4 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

Filling

Topping

  • 7 oz vegan chocolate

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 175°C (350°F). Lightly grease the base and sides of a square 8" pan with some oil or vegan butter, then line with parchment paper.
  • In your food processor, combine the gluten-free flour, almond flour, vegan butter, maple syrup, and salt until the ingredients stick together to form a dough.
  • Evenly press the dough into the base of the pan and smooth it out with a spatula or flat bottomed glass. With a fork, gently prick the dough several times. Bake for 15-18 minutes until slightly browned, then allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Slice the bananas into coins and add them to a bowl with the lemon/lime juice. Coat both sides of the banana slices in the juice and then transfer them to a plate lined with kitchen paper or a clean tea towel. Gently blot the excess moisture from them and arrange them on top of the shortbread base in an even layer.
  • To make the caramel, add the peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and salt to your food processor and blend until smooth. Using a spatula, spread the caramel over the sliced bananas in an even layer. Place in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours (overnight if preferred).
  • Melt the chocolate over a double boiler and use a spatula to spread it over the caramel in an even layer. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to set.
  • To slice, place a sharp knife in a jug of boiling water to heat it. Wipe the knife dry and gently cut, allowing the heat from the knife to melt through the slices.
