Banoffee Oats Parfait

Let's take a moment to think about our favourite desserts as a child...

Was one of them Banoffee??  If so, then you will LOVE this Banoffee Oat Parfait.... all the creamy banana-ey caramel-y goodness of the traditional dessert without the fat and added sugar ingredients... did I mention it is also vegan? Perfect for breakfast, dessert or even a snack! Read on for the recipe (it includes banana, dates and oats...it's impossible to go wrong really)! 






you will need....

for the biscuit base and topping
For the Biscuit Base:

Combine 1/4 a large ripe banana (mashed), a sprinkle of cinnamon, 1tsp crunchy PB, 1/6 cup oats and some chopped almonds and seeds. Mix all together and spread onto a baking tray (preferably on greaseproof paper...I didn't have any left) and bake under a medium heat grill for 10 minutes, turning over half way through. Break up and leave to cool and crunch up. This would also be great as a healthy muesli on it's own!



for the toffee oats
For the Toffee Oats:
Combine the remaining 1/6 cup oats and 2tbsp soy milk. Cook for a minute or so. Add date caramel (Soak the two dates in hot water for two minutes, remove and mash. Slowly add back in the hot water, mashing until a caramel consistency is achieved), cinnamon and agave or honey to sweeten (I also added some coffee granules which worked surprisingly well)!



for the banana cream 


For the Banana Cream:
Mash 1/3 banana with 2tbsp soy milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla essence and agave or honey (if not vegan) to sweeten if desired.



In summary...

BANOFFEE OAT PARFAIT


You Will Need:

- 2 dates
- 1tsp agave (or honey if not vegan)
- 1/2tsp vanilla essence

*Please note, if you're not vegan, I thoroughly recommend using slightly watered down 0% Greek Yoghurt (like Fage Total Greek) in place of the soy yoghurt and milk!
