Gluten Free Banana Cream Pie: A Delicious Twist on a Classic Dessert

Posted on August 16th, 2023.

Living with celiac disease comes with its own set of dietary challenges, and we want to ensure that those with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease can still enjoy the pleasures of a delectable dessert. Our Gluten Free Banana Cream Pie is more than just a treat – it's a symbol of inclusivity and care for our customers' diverse needs.

Understanding Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the consumption of gluten – a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye – triggers an immune response that damages the small intestine. This condition can lead to a range of uncomfortable and potentially serious symptoms, making a gluten-free diet a necessity.

Gluten-Free Goodness

Dietary restrictions shouldn't mean missing out on beloved desserts. Our Gluten Free Banana Cream Pie is a testament to our commitment to providing scrumptious treats for everyone. We've carefully crafted a gluten-free crust that's as flaky and buttery as its traditional counterpart, ensuring that every bite is a delightful experience.

A Symphony of Flavors

One bite into our Gluten Free Banana Cream Pie and you'll be transported to dessert paradise. The velvety banana-infused cream fills your mouth with the perfect balance of sweetness and a hint of tartness. Each layer is meticulously prepared to create a symphony of flavors that dance on your taste buds. And let's not forget the fresh banana slices on top that not only add a visually appealing touch but also enhance the overall taste.

Can You Freeze Banana Cream Pie?

Life is full of sweet surprises, and sometimes you might find yourself with leftover banana cream pie – though it's a rarity! The good news is that our Gluten Free Banana Cream Pie is freezer-friendly. If you manage to resist devouring it all in one sitting, you can certainly freeze the remaining slices. Just wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and place them in an airtight container before popping them in the freezer. When you're ready to relish the frozen delight, simply thaw the slices in the refrigerator and let the magic unfold once again.

Wanna Try Baking Your Own Gluten Free Banana Cream Pie?

If you're feeling adventurous and want to create your own Gluten Free Banana Cream Pie, we've got a simple recipe for you to try:


For the crust:

  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free graham cracker crumbs
  • ⅓ cup melted butter
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

For the filling:

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 ½ cups milk
  • 4 large egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 ripe bananas, sliced
  • Whipped cream, for topping


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • In a bowl, combine the gluten-free graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and ¼ cup granulated sugar for the crust. Press the mixture into a pie dish to form the crust. Bake for about 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together ¾ cup granulated sugar, cornstarch, and salt for the filling. Gradually whisk in the milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil.
  • Temper the beaten egg yolks by gradually adding a small amount of the hot milk mixture while whisking constantly. Then, pour the tempered egg yolks back into the saucepan and continue cooking for an additional 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in 2 tablespoons of butter and vanilla extract until smooth.
  • Layer half of the sliced bananas onto the cooled pie crust. Pour half of the filling over the bananas. Add the remaining sliced bananas, followed by the rest of the filling.
  • Cover the pie with plastic wrap, ensuring that the wrap touches the surface of the filling to prevent a skin from forming. Chill the pie in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or until the filling is set.
  • Before serving, top the pie with whipped cream and additional banana slices if desired.
  • Slice and enjoy your homemade Gluten Free Banana Cream Pie!
