Greek Yogurt Banana Cream Pie

Ingredients:

1 Banana cream pudding pack

2.5 Bananas

1.5 cup Vanilla Greek yogurt

1 cup Skim milk

1 package Van’s Banana Nut Soft Baked Whole Grain Clusters

Instructions:

  1. Press Van’s Banana Nut Soft Baked Whole Grain Clusters firmly to the bottom of a pie tin. I used about 3/4 of the bag. However, if you like a thicker crust, you can use the entire bag.

  1. Slice bananas and layer them on top of the clusters. Be sure to save some for the top of the pie.

Although Van’s Banana Nut Soft Baked Whole Grain Clusters are tasty enough to eat by themselves (for both snacking and for breakfast) they also make an AMAZING pie crust! Offering 12-14 g of whole grains, these delicious bite-sized granola clusters are only 120 calories per serving! Not to mention, this tasty granola is made with no HFCS, artificial ingredients, or hydrogenated oils. Available in four tasty flavors (Banana Nut, Double Chocolate, Cranberry Almond and Blueberry Walnut), you’ll love snacking on these guiltless whole grain clusters.

Thanks to Van’s Foods, I can now eat one of my favorite desserts without the guilt. Not to mention, my toddler gives this Greek Yogurt Banana Cream Pie two thumbs up. And coming from a picky eater, you know this recipe must be good.
