Coconut Banana Cream Pie In a Jar

I love desserts in a mason jar!  They look super cute and they are fun to serve!

My family was invited to our friend’s house for dinner and I was in charge of dessert, so I decided on Coconut Banana Cream Pies in mason jars!

This recipe makes 4 small mason jars plus I made 2 small jars for my kids to have smaller sizes of the dessert.

Coconut Banana Cream Pie


1 cup ground oats

1/3 cup dried banana chips, ground

8 tbsp. coconut oil, melted

2 tbsp. date paste (recipe for date paste HERE)

2 tbsp. lucuma (optional)

Mix all crust ingredients well and place equal amounts into bottoms of glass jars.  Press down with fingers or back of a spoon.

Next, slice bananas and layer on top of crust layer.  If using small bananas use 1 per jar, if using larger bananas use 1 per 2 jars.


4 cups organic coconut milk (I used coconut milk from a can)

1/2 cup organic maple syrup

1 vanilla bean, scraped

pinch of sea salt

1/3 cup arrowroot powder

2 tbsp. lucuma (optional)

Whisk ingredients together on low to medium heat.  Continue whisking until cream thickens.  The arrowroot powder will act as a thickening agent.  This process will take about 5-10 minutes.  Let cream cool and pour over crust/banana layer.

Optional: top with coconut shreds, dried banana slices or chocolate chips!

These turned out so great and were a great end to a wonderful meal!!!  Look at the spread our friend’s provided!!!!  Grilled veggies of all kinds, raw veggies, olive tapenaude, fresh basil, and grilled spelt bread and to drink fresh brewed red roobios tea!!!  So delicious!!
