Banoffee Pie

My housemate challenged me to make a healthy banoffee pie. A task that sounds easy, because like carrot cake, banana bread and apple tart, banoffee pie sounds like it should be healthy. It contains fruit right? Lets not mention to the cream, sugar, caramel, biscuits…. 

I also wanted it to be gluten and nut free so that everyone in our house could eat it. 

It took a lot of thinking and a bit of improvisation but I am pleased with the end result. It is creamy, sweet and indulgent and would happily take pride of place at the end of Sunday dinner, without being too naughty.
