Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 10 full-size graham cracker sheets)
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 cups date caramel (below) or store-bought dulce de leche
  • 3-4 ripe but firm bananas, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream (see coconut cream variation in notes)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • chocolate shavings, for topping

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. In a medium bowl, combine the graham crackers, butter (or coconut oil), and 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Mix until combined. Press the dough into an 8 x 8-inch Pyrex Deep baking dish. Transfer to the oven and bake until toasted, about 8-10 minutes. Let cool.
    3. Spread the caramel (or dulce de leche) evenly in the bottom of the crust. Layer the bananas over the caramel.
    4. To make the cream. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the cream and vanilla on medium-high speed until soft peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons maple syrup and beat until incorporated, 30 seconds. Spread the cream over the bananas. Cover and chill for 1-2 hours, or overnight. Just before serving top with chocolate shavings. The first slice will be a little messy to cut, so keep it small.

Notes

Vegan Coconut Cream: In a large bowl, beat two cans (13.5 ounce) coconut cream (do not use any coconut water - drain the water out) using an electric mixer on high-speed until it begins to thicken and peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, slowly fold in 2 tablespoons maple syrup and 1 tablespoon vanilla. Use as directed above.
