  1. No Bake Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Cream Pie Recipe

So, I was out one day this summer with my 3 year old, my 8 month old, and my 3 year old niece. We met some friends, went to the wading pool, played all through nap time and then I dragged them, exhausted, through the grocery store.

One aisle at a time, of course, because as I was distracted by them acting all ridiculous in the cart, I managed to delete my entire grocery list off of my phone, one letter at a time.

I’m not even sure how I could possibly have had the same finger on the backspace button on my phone for that long, while dealing with the ridiculousness, and not having moved it at some point.

But then I looked down at my grocery list, ready to move on and actually accomplish something, and it was gone.

The baby is crying, and the un-napped 3 year olds are about to fall to pieces.

But hey, we made it (I bribed them).

And then I insisted on ice cream for supper. Mostly because I needed it after a whole day out with 3 kids.

So we went to one of my favorite ice cream places, and when we were walking up I saw a sign for a Funky Monkey, with peanut butter, chocolate, whipped cream, bananas…. SO good.

And since we are big fans of Banana Cream Pie (check out my classic recipe here <–), I decided to take this flavor combo and turn it into this totally no bake, Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie — perfect for any time of the year!

I kind of think peanut butter and chocolate is the only way to do banana cream pie.

I don’t always love banana desserts (they’re just not always very dessert-y, you know?), but I do love a banana cream pie. This version takes Banana Cream Pie and turns it into something totally over the top, in the best way.

Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter

Filling:

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup cream (any kind)
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 bananas sliced
  • whipped cream, extra bananas, mini peanut butter cups, and peanut butter for garnish as desired.

Instructions

Crust:

  • Stir together graham crumbs and melted butter and press firmly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie plate.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-9 minutes, until it looks slightly dry. (This step is optional and just helps the crust to hold up better)

Filling:

  • In a medium bowl, combine chocolate chips, cream and peanut butter. Microwave on high in 20 second intervals, stirring each time, until melted.
  • Pour into the bottom of the crust.
  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together half and half, sugar, eggs and corn starch until smooth.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened — this can take up to 10 or 15 minutes but don't rush it.
  • When filling has thickened, stir in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. Stir in sliced bananas.
  • Pour into crust over chocolate. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight until set.
  • Top with sweetened whipped cream, sliced bananas, Reese's peanut butter cups, and peanut butter drizzle as desired. (To drizzle peanut butter, simply heat in the microwave until it can be poured, then use a spoon to drizzle over).

    Would you blind bake the crust before making the pie? This appears to be a pretty good pie and I would like to make this as I have some serious peanut butter, banana, and chocolate fans in the family, ya know?

    The wading pool with toddlers and babies was such a fun day with much laughter, tears and funny photos… But I never guessed it would also lead to such a fantastic-looking cream pie! This is definitely going on my must-make-soon list! Wow thanks!

    Banana cream pie is a favorite of mine, and you’ve made it even more delicious here — and no-bake to boot! Being out all day with 3 small children definitely calls for ice cream. 🙂

    Omg, your day out with three kids totally calls for ice cream for dinner! I’m exhausted after a day with my niece and nephew. And the grocery list erasing? Ughh! Anyways, this pie is HOLY COW AMAZING! I am a huge fan of peanut butter and bananas (sans chocolate, I’m allergic), and I can just imagine how good this cream pie is! I totally have to make this next time I have company…or just for Boy, He’d go crazy for this! Pinned! Cheers!

    Hi Ashley! You are the Queen of no bake!! I make a really rich custard for cream puffs that would be a good “pudding” in this. 🙂

  7. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says

    I’m seriously addicted to that Reese’s spread, not even kidding! Ever since it came out last year, I buy it with the sole purpose of eating it with a spoon…I just can’t get enough of it! This pie though, wow! It looks gorgeous. What a great way to use that spread and bananas!

    Yummm!!! This is the perfect recipe for me right now because I’m in the southern hemisphere headed into spring/summer so no bake recipes are lifesaving!
