Banana Cream Pie...with Chocolate and Peanut!

Traditionally banana cream pie has either a flaky buttery crust or a graham cracker crust. You guys know I'm all about switching it up, so I decided to go with a chocolate peanut crust.

Cream Pie


  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate melted + cooled
  • 2-3 firm but ripe bananas, sliced
  • chopped peanuts

Chocolate Shell (optional)



  • Add the chocolate wafers, peanuts, melted butter and honey to a food processor pulse until finely ground and well combined.
  • Pat mixture into a 9-inch pie dish, pressing firmly into the bottom and up the sides.

Cream Pie Filling

  • In a medium sauce pan, whisk together the sugar, flour, cornstarch and salt. Add the egg yolks and whisk until smooth. Pour in the milk and whisk until fully combined. Add the vanilla bean seeds. Set the pan over medium high heat. Bring the mixture to a low boil. Cook, stirring consistently until the mixture thickens and is pudding like, about 8 minutes. Once thickened, remove from the heat and stir in the butter. Spoon the pudding into the prepared pie crust. Cover with plastic wrap and let chill at least 4 hours.


  • Whip the cream using an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Scoop out 1/3 of the whipped cream and place in a separate bowl. To the remaining 2/3 whipped cream, add the melted chocolate and gently mix until the chocolate is fully incorporated into the cream.
  • Remove the pie from the fridge and add the sliced bananas. Add the chocolate cream in a single layer and then add the final dollop of whipped cream. If desired, drizzle with the chocolate shell (see below) and finish with a sprinkle of chopped peanuts. Slice and serve!!

Chocolate Shell (optional)

  • melt together the chocolate and coconut oil until smooth and combined. Let cool 10 minutes and then drizzle over the pie.
