Pie is the best. Except when it’s a million degrees out, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven to bake something, so I found this peanut butter banana pie recipe and gave it a try. It’s basically a frozen peanut butter banana creamy custard of dreams come true. And I can’t stop eating it.
You all should know by now that I’m a huge fan of any recipe that reads “Add ingredients to blender. Blend. You’re basically done.” And that’s exactly what this recipe is! Check it out, do it yourself, then marvel at your ability to eat half of it in one sitting (I ate a few slices before I even got around to taking the picture!).
No Bake Peanut Butter Banana Pie
Ingredients | Crust
1 cup rolled oats (gluten free if you need it)
1 tbspn cocoa powder
3 tbspn maple syrup
1 cup almond flour
Ingredients | Filling
2 cups organic peanut butter (I used smooth to get a nice creamy consistency)
3 large bananas
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
Ingredients | Drizzle
2 tbspn coconut oil
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
- Put the oats, almond flour and cocoa powder in a food processor and blend until the texture is consistent throughout, add the maple syrup and blend again.
- In a standard pie plate, line with parchment paper and then press the crust mixture into the bottom, forming an even layer. Place in the freezer while you make the filling.
- To make the filling, simply mix all of the ingredients together using a blender. I use a Ninja as both my food processor and blender and it worked perfectly.
- Pour the filling into the pie plate and spread evenly. Put the pie back in the freezer for 4-6 hours, allowing it to harden before you add the melted chocolate drizzle.
- Before serving, make the drizzle by placing the ingredients in a small bowl, then microwaving in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each 30 seconds. I actually only needed to microwave it once for it to melt together into a sauce. Use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over the pie.
- Serve immediately while the pie is still cold. Store leftovers (if you have any) in the freezer. Enjoy!
