One of our community members, Monica Corrado of Simply Being Well, just shared with me that her 11-year-old son, Bodhi, created a pie without her being involved in any way! I wanted to share his recipe with the rest of you! We encourage you to teach your children how to cook, and bake. Read my review of the Nourishing Traditions Cookbook for Children. Bodhi photographed his finished pie below:


Banana Cream Pie Ingredients

Good for one 9” pie


2 Fresh Organic Bananas
4 Pasture-Raised Eggs
1/2 Cup Whole Milk; Preferably Raw Milk
4 Tbsp Maple Syrup


1 1/2 Cups Organic Oat Flour [see Monica’s notes below]
4 Tbsp Pastured Butter, Frozen
2 Tbsp Whole Milk; Preferably Raw Milk

[Monica’s notes: In order to make this recipe in alignment with the Weston A. Price Foundation’s dietary  principles, you may choose to do one of the following:

1. Purchase organic sprouted oat flour, and then proceed with recipe as written.
2. Soak regular organic oat flour in plain, whole milk, organic yogurt overnight. For this recipe, use 1/2 cup of yogurt and mix into the oat flour well. Cover the bowl with a plate and leave on the counter for 12-24 hours. Then proceed with the recipe.]


For the filling: Mash all ingredients together.

For the crust: Put oat flour in large bowl.Chop butter into small pieces and mix into oat flour. Gradually pour milk into blend and knead. Roll flat and lay in 9” pie pan.

Pour mashed banana blend into crust. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Preheat oven to 375* and bake pie for 40 minutes.
