Guiltless Banana Pie with Peanut Butter Topping

Guiltless Banana Pie with Peanut Butter Topping by Custom Taste. In celebration for PI day!

We are pretty big nerds here and March 14th was National Pi(3.14-) Day (at least for those of you who use the Middle-Endian calendar system). We are also on a health kick, so I had to figure out a way to make a delicious pie without adding tons of added sugars, carbs and fat. I hit the mark! Light and easy to eat, it was a perfect after dinner dessert and it didn't come served with a side of guilt. Plus, we love the health benefits bananas have. Enjoy!
