The combination of banana and toasted nut flavors is a treat to the tastebuds. Marg @Cayman Designs' Basic Graham Cracker Crust is a good graham cracker crust recipe (don't use the optional cinnamon for this pie); you can also use a commercially available crust. Use ripe bananas but NOT bananas that are over-ripe and turning mushy. If you like, use dollops of Reddi-Whip on top of pie (optional); the program won't let me add this optional ingredient to the ingredients list.

  2. Pat nut mixture evenly over the bottom of the piecrust.
  3. Layer the banana slices over the nut mixture.

  5. Chill at least 1 hour.
  6. Before serving, decorate the top of the pie with the reserved pecan halves--make a pretty pattern or just place in a circle around the edge.

Usually I skip the crust when making pies and use nonfat milk for the pudding, so did that here. This was really good. I also tried a version of it with Kozy Shack chocolate pudding I had in the frig, and it was even better that way!
