Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Variation

Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana Pie
The other day I made a nice variation on my Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. I turned it into a Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. It was quite good.

Here's how I did it: Take two medium bananas and slice them thinly. Mix 2 tsp maple syrup with 4 tsp lemon or orange juice (to prevent browning) and toss the banana slices to coat. Arrange the slices in a single layer along the bottom and sides of a pie crust (crumb is fine). Don't pour any remaining maple-lemon sauce on top; just discard. Prepare the peanut butter tofu filling and pour over top. Sprinkle with carob chips as usual.

It tasted quite good. The bananas were soft and sweet in an almost marshmallow-y way.

This technique could be used with any tofu cream pie, by the way.
