Banana Caramel Pie

I think i’ve taken a pretty long break (been in the process of moving to a different continent!) so let’s start up again with a bang! This recipe is so quick to make, and, not gonna lie, it’s quick to finish too.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 ready made pie crust (or you can make your own)

5 bananas, peeled and sliced

3/4 cup sugar + 1/2 cup water

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/2 cup cream

chocolate chips or extra nuts are optional

1 tub cool whip (or 1 cup cream whipped to stiff peaks with 2-3 T icing sugar)

In a sauce pan bring the sugar and water to a boil and simmer till the mix starts to bubble and turn a caramel brown. Then pour in the 1/2 cup of cream and let it simmer for a minute or so, then add most of the sliced bananas (You can add them all, but I like to keep some uncooked to add texture to the pie) and all the pecans and let them cook on a low heat for 3-4 minutes. Then all you have to do is pour the mixture into the pie crust, spread the remaining banana slices over, let the mixture cool, then dollop over the cool whip. I added some chocolate chips before the cream, but that’s not necessary.

That’s all! Just let the pie chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. This is a really nice base recipe that can be tweaked according to your taste. You can change up the fruit, add oatmeal, or just add lots of pecans and make it a pecan pie! Enjoy!
