My banana cream pie recipe will show you where cholesterol hides, and how to create a delicious dessert that contain little, or no cholesterol. You really can enjoy sweet treats without sacrificing your low cholesterol diet plan.
Bananas are an Acceptable Fruit for People with High Cholesterol
The cholesterol level in bananas is zero, 0, zilch, none, and nil. Which means that bananas are a great fruit for you to consume if you are worried about lowering your cholesterol.

This Recipe Will Make 2 Large Pies with One Spare Crust for the Freezer. Let's Get Started.
These are the Ingredients That You Will Need.
Banana Pie Filling:
6 cups one percent milk.
5 medium bananas
2 packages cooked vanilla or banana pudding mix.
(Both pudding varieties will make a delicious banana cream pie. Note: each package should request 3 cups of milk. Using one percent milk will help to reduce the fat and still have your cream base tasting rich and creamy.)
1 1/4 cups of non-hydrogenated soft margarine
1/2 cup of lightly packed brown sugar
2 1/2 cups of your choice of brown or white flour
3 cups of quick oats
1 cup of old fashioned oats
Note: Stay away from the hard margarine, it may be easier to measure out, but it is also loaded with trans fats which are those nasty fats that clog up your arteries. Check the nutritional list on the soft margarine that you purchase and be sure that it contains 0 transfats.
When making your crust don't worry if you don't quite get your measurements exact. If your dough is a little too sticky then add extra quick oats. If it is a little too dry then add a little more margarine. It will still come out nice and toasty tasty.
Filling first: Follow the directions on the pudding package.
Banana Pie Filling:
1. In a medium or large sized pot, mix contents of both packages, with 6 cups of one percent milk.
2. Stirring constantly cook over medium to medium high heat till mixture comes to a boil.
3. Remove pot from heat and allow pudding to cool while you prepare the pie crusts.

For Those Who are Wheat Sensitive try Substituting in Coconut Flour in the Crust to Replace Standard Wheat Flour.
