Banana Cream Pie with Cinnamon Crusted Apples

This banana cream pie is a sugar-free, vegan dessert, high in fibers and with a delicious banana cream and cinnamon crusted apples topping.  

I love desserts that are easy to make. I was never good at baking and I don’t think I’ll get any better. I just don’t have enough patience.

I craved for something sweet and decided to make this banana cream pie. I don’t know where I got the idea to make a banana cream, it just popped up in my head. I’m glad I did it, it was delicious! I made this recipe twice so far, first time with apples and the second time I used pears. It was great in both cases!

I almost forgot to mention, this is refined SUGAR-FREE! Yes! I just sprinkled some sugar on top at the end just so it would look good in the photos, but it is not necessary, as it is already sweet enough. Also, I tried to make the dough as healthy and high in fibers as possible. The pumpkin seeds were amazing!

Hope you’ll give this banana cream pie a try. Let me know how it was!
