Peanut Butter Banana Pie

May 7, 2011
Share

My sister served this pie years ago, and with one bite I was hooked! It’s sweet and rich, with an amazing combination of flavors–peanut butter, banana, cream cheese, chocolate. YUM! It’s a huge hit any time I serve it. Plan ahead when making, as it freezes 8 hours before serving.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup crushed graham crackers
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (I recommend using natural vs processed, like Jiff)
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (not imitation)
8 oz whipped cream (I stopped using Cool Whip years ago–it’s nothing but oil and chemicals. I recommend using real whipped cream instead.)
1 1/2 cup sliced fresh banana (about 2 medium sized)
1/4 cup melted chocolate

Directions:

To make crust –

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with Pam cooking spray.
  • Place graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter in pie plate.
  • Mix well, until crumbly.
  • Press crumb mixture into pie plate to form crust.
  • Bake 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely.

To make pie –

  • Place brown sugar, cream cheese, peanut butter, and vanilla in large bowl.
  • Beat with electric mixer until smooth.
  • Fold in whip cream and stir until blended.
  • Arrange banana slices evenly on bottom of cooled pie crust.
  • Pour pie filling on top of banana slices and spread with a spatula.
  • Drizzle with melted chocolate.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and freeze 8 hours.
  • Remove from freezer and let sit at room temp for 30 minutes prior to slicing and serving.
