1Mix together the crust ingredients in a small plate. Once it is all mixed together well, press it down into the bottom of a cup to form the crust.
2Heat up the caramel ingredients in a stovetop pan over medium-high heat. Keep mixing every few seconds, and allow the mixture to boil. Once boiling, turn the heat to low.
3Let it simmer on low. Keep stirring every minute. Once the caramel has been simmering for 25 minutes (you should notice that it thickens and the liquid reduces), turn off the heat and let it sit for another 15-20 minutes. It will thicken as it cools.
4If you want a cold parfait, refrigerate the caramel for a few hours. It will get even thicker as it sits in the fridge too. Otherwise, you can use it right away. When you are ready to use, layer 3 tbsp of the caramel on top of the crust, and save a little extra for topping.
5Layer the bananas on top of the caramel. Lastly, add the whipped cream on top.
6Drizzle with the remaining caramel mixture. Serve right away.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
