The following recipe is for a chocolate banana peanut butter pudding pie, topped with raspberries. The peanut butter is in the crust.
Ingredients For the Crust
- 1/4 cup of white sugar
- 1/3 cup of either creamy or crunchy peanut butter
- 1 - 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
Graham Cracker Crust
- If you are using graham crackers rather than the prepackaged crumbs you will need twelve whole crackers. These can be either ground up in a food processor or put into a plastic bag and rolled with a rolling pin.
- You may wish to use a store bought graham cracker crust and omit the peanut butter flavor.
- To make a plain graham cracker crust use butter in place of the peanut butter.
