I had high hopes of starting the new year off with a healthy recipe, but I’m just not good at healthy. I am what I am. And since I’ve been wanting to blog this pie for a while, I think I’ll take the opportunity today, which totally makes sense since I’m on a diet and am self-forbidden to eat fun stuff like this. Blogging might just satisfy that part of me that is crying out for sugar and carbs. I doubt it, but still.
This is a pretty classic peanut butter cream pie, but with the addition of a little honey for sweetness and flavor. When my sister and I were little girls, we would not touch jelly or jam because those items were gross, icky, and BLECKY. But honey? We loved our little honey bear. So my mom would mix peanut butter and honey together and spread it on our Wonder bread.
Gosh, I haven’t seen Wonder bread in years. Do they still make it? And what about Count Chocula and Franken Berry cereals? Where are they now? *remembering the seventies*
And what’s peanut butter without a little chocolate? Chocolate in the form of an Oreo crust and milk chocolate ganache. And since I wanted to make this pie a little more unique, I roasted some bananas and stirred those in too.
And you know what I love best about this pie? It’s so fluffy, I could die.
I really don’t have any notes. It’s a pretty straight forward recipe.
