This banoffee pie recipe is a gluten-free and possibly vegan take on an English dessert -- without using any refined sugar. Made by Izy Hossack from Top With Cinnamon, the Banoffee Pie Bites transform the bananas, cream and toffee-containing treat into a bite-sized piece of heaven those with dietary restrictions can still enjoy.

The pie tarts have a pastry base made out of chia seeds, water, almonds, buckwheat flour, oats, salt and olive oil. The toffee or caramel portion of the banoffee pie recipe consists of medjool dates, coconut butter (or a different nut butter), water, salt and vanilla extract. For topping, there is ricotta, plain yogurt, vanilla extract and banana with bee pollen and grated unsweetened chocolate for garnish. Vegans can replace the ricotta with cashew or coconut cream.
