Gluten Free Banana Cream Pie
Gluten Free Banana Cream Pie
3/4 cup Gluten Free Rolled Oats
3/4 cup Sliced Almonds
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
2 tbsp Lite and Sweet
1/4 cup Melted Coconut Oil
3 tbsp Cornstarch
1/3 cup powder Lite and Sweet
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1 1/2 cups Unsweetened Plain Almond Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
3 rip Bananas, sliced
Sugar Free Whipping Cream:
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup powdered Lite&Sweet
1-2 more just ripe bananas, sliced
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a standard pie dish. Set aside.
- Add Lite and Sweet to food processor and run for 1-2 minutes until the sweetener is powered. Next add oats, almonds, and sea salt, to a food processor and mix/pulse on high until a fine meal is achieved.
- Remove lid and add melted coconut oil, starting with 1/4 cup and adding more if needed. Pulse/mix on low until a loose dough is formed, scraping down sides as needed. You should be able to squeeze the mixture between two fingers and form a dough instead of it crumbling. If too dry, add a bit more melted coconut oil.
- Transfer mixture to pie pan and spread evenly to distribute with a flat-bottomed object, and press down firmly until it’s evenly distributed and well packed on the bottom and up the sides. You can use a spoon or the bottom of a measuring cup to pack the crust into the pan.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and there is some browning on the surface. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
- In the meantime, prepare the filling in a sauce pan over medium heat by adding cornstarch, powdered Lite and Sweet, and salt whisking in almond milk to avoid clumps.
- Cook until bubbling, whisking frequently. Then reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 8-10 more minutes, using a rubber spatula to scrape the sides and bottom.
- Once it appears to thicken like a pudding, remove from heat, whisk in vanilla, and let cool 10 minutes. Then transfer to a glass or ceramic bowl and cover with plastic wrap, making sure the plastic wrap is touching the surface or it will form a film on top. Refrigerate until cooled and set for about 2-3 hours is preferable.
- In the meantime, place a glass mixing bowl in the freezer for 20 minutes until chilled.
- Using a blender add the Lite and Sweet and powder on high for 1 to 2 minutes until the sweetener is powdered. Set aside.
- Remove the chilled bowl from the freezer and use a handheld mixer to whip the heavy whipping cream, powder Lite and Sweet and vanilla. Mix it well until it forms soft peaks. Set in refrigerator to chill.
- Build the pie by adding slices of the bananas to the bottom of the baked crust, next add the pudding filling mixture. Smooth the top with a spoon, then cover with plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight, to chill/set.
- To serve, top with sugar free whipped cream and more sliced bananas, enjoy!
