Recipe: Chocolate-Banana Pie with Graham Cracker Crust


Chocolate and bananas – a match made in heaven.  Combine two of your favorite things in this easy Chocolate-Banana Pie recipe!  I used a store-bought graham cracker crust, so that this became a no-bake pie!

Food Mingle Blog Alternatives and Substitutions:

  • I chose to use a store-bought graham cracker crust, but the home-made crust described here does look pretty easy (even for me!)
  • In baking, you usually don’t want to make substitutions for fats. For example, I used 1% milk in my pie and as a result, it didn’t set as nicely as I would have liked. I recommend using at least 2% milk (or half-and-half) for this recipe, so that you pie will set nicely.
  • Consider holding back some of the bananas to used as a topping on the pie, per my picture shown above.

Yield: 8 servings
