This is a great desert for any occasion. My entire family loved it and were surprised when I told them it was raw vegan. Bring it to your potlucks or parties, because everyone will enjoy this guilt-free raw & nut-free banana pie dessert!
I used dehydrated pineapple in this recipe. It gives it a nice sweetness and adds to the flavor of the banana’s. Although it is best to dry your own fruit, you can find a good variety of dehydrated fruit at your local health store. When buying dehydrated fruits, be sure to get organic and unsweetened.
If you can’t find unsweetened, then substitute it with your next favorite dried fruit.

- 1 cup organic dates

- In a food processor, place the banana chips and process until the reach a flour-like consistency.
