Yes. All of these ingredients are a yes.
I eat an unGodly amount of peanut butter. And bananas for that matter. Pie though, I’m not always so keen on. My mother is an amazing pie maker, and I could never live up to that. She makes her own crust and fills it with a fruity sugar bomb that everyone in the small community I come from loves.
Honestly, I’m a peanut butter and chocolate person. I got enough pie. It’s good, but I can make it better to suit my preferences.
Hence the inspiration for this pie.
My friend did the Syracuse Ironman last weekend and PRed by 26 minutes! I felt he deserved some kind of culinary award. He also loves peanut butter almost as much as I do (no one could love it that much). It just seemed fitting to make him something with that as the star ingredient.
With moving, I don’t have too many ingredients on hand. I always though have bananas (another diet staple #typicalvegan) Bananas provide the sweet and creamy, peanut butter provides the mouth feel and and the chocolate on top takes this pie to a whole different level. With only a few ingredients, you will have a hard time not making this every time you get that craving.
Peanut Butter Banana Pie
1 chocolate pie crust
2 c mashed bananas
1 c crunchy peanut butter
2 t vanilla
3 T coconut oil
Various chocolate for topping
Combine the mashed bananas, peanut butter, vanilla and oil together in a bowl and stir to combine. The texture should be smooth. Pour into the prepared pie crust. Decorate with chocolate. Refridgerate until set (2-3 hours)
Try not to eat the whole thing in one sitting (Tom ate it for breakfast the next day…)
