MERINGUE BANANA AGAVE NUT PIE
Time: 40 Minutes
Yield: 8 Servings
(5 Item Recipe)
1 Cup Raw Organic Sunflower Seed, unsalted, hulled
1/4 Cup Organic Peanut Butter or Any Nut Butter
1/2 Cup Organic Agave
3 Egg Whites, beaten until stiff, and peaks form
Organic Banana, sliced thin
Preheat oven to 350. While awaiting the oven. Take crust ingredients and put into food processor sunflower seeds, peanut butter and 1/2 agave. In a greased or sprayed oven safe pie pan press the crust mix down forming a tight crust. In another bowl take egg whites and beat until stiff. Peaks will form. Once stiff add agave to sweeten. Then take meringue mixture and spread on pie crust. Cook pie for 15 -30 minutes until golden edges appear. While pie is cooking cut up bananas and chill. When pie is done pull out and let cool. Once to room temperature put into refrigerator. Best when made the night before and served the next day cutting up fresh banana to serve with it. I think it is most delicious when served chilled. You can also eat it hot or room temperature depending on your desired taste. This was so delicious, easy and simple. It can be served nicely with any other fruit in season.
This pie is super nutritious using only agave to sweeten.
It is packed with fat free egg protein and loaded with healthy fats from the nuts and nut butter.
The bananas provide a great source of potassium.
This is a great low flat, low glycemic snack or dessert choice over other higher fat and calorie junk food options.
