Crust:

  • 3/4 cup gluten-free oats
  • 3/4 unsweetened coconut shreds
  • 3/4 cup dates
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)

Add the ingredients in a food processor and blend until well combined.  Press it into the bottom of a pie dish.

Filling:

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or honey, but not for strict vegans)
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1/3 shredded unsweetened coconut

Blend all the pie filling ingredients then pour over the crust.  Freeze before enjoying.  I froze mine overnight, but it might work with less time too!
