Gluten Free Banana Cream Pie Recipe

I love, love, love banana cream pie! Seriously, I once ate a whole one all by myself. Not in one sitting of course, that would just be gluttonous. It was more like 2 or 3 sittings.

When I was developing this gluten free recipe for banana cream pie, I was having issues with my cable, so the cable repairman was out for a few days in a row trying to fix the problem. Every time he showed up I would have him taste test my latest version. He was pretty much in heaven. Hey! Now that I think about it, maybe that’s why it took so long to fix the issue. Hmmm…

Anyway, this recipe is from my very first cookbook, Simply Gluten Free Desserts. I loved it then and I love it now!

Ingredients
  • 1 (9-inch) pre-baked gluten free pie crust cooled
Filling:
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup whole milk divided
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons Wholesome! organic sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 medium bananas
Topping:
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons Wholesome! organic sugar
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Instructions
Make the filling:
  1. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs well.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with ½ cup milk.
  3. In a large saucepan, mix the remaining milk with the half-and-half, sugar and salt. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a boil. Gradually pour about ¼ of the hot mixture into the eggs and whisk well. Pour the egg mixture into the saucepan along with the cornstarch mixture, lower the heat to medium-low, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens to the consistency of pudding, about 1 minute. Take the mixture off the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla. Push the mixture through a fine sieve into a clean bowl.

  4. Peel the bananas and slice them diagonally in about ¼ inch slices. Reserve a few slices for garnish and layer the rest into the bottom of the cooled pie shell. Pour the pudding over the top, smooth with a spatula, let cool, and then refrigerate until cold and firm, about 4 hours.
Make the topping:
  1. Whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Spread over the top of the pie, garnish with banana slices, and serve.
