Recipe by Cacau
"This whole banana pie is a hit in Brazil, mainly in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Almost all the ingredients are natural, except for the margarine. It is also made with whole grains, which contribute for a good health. It supplies a lot of energy and the bananas give an extra dose of potassium. That is why this pie is consumed by athletes and people who practice sports in general. Besides, it is simply delicious!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise
whole wheat flour
toasted wheat germ
packed brown sugar
Kinda like banana crisp.... Most excellent
Although the ingredients are healthy, which we try to incorporate into our menu, this wasn't one of our favourites. The "crust" didn't stick together enough and the flavours didn't bake together, so it tasted like eating a banana with crumbly topping. My husband enjoyed it though and did say that it was better cold the next day.
Nutritious and delicious! I did have trouble with the melted sugar layer on the bottom, it wouldn't turn into syrup for me so in the end I just sprinkled brown sugar in the bottom of the baking dish which seemed to work just fine. I also wondered exactly what "light margarine" is, I used regular stick margarine and it was great. Works perfectly well with whole grain flours besides wheat (I used barley). Everyone loved it, and were sorry they were too full to eat more! (10 inch spring form pan fits it all well.)
Delicious! I made this for my Brazilian husband. There was something very familar about this dish. An excellent comfort food. I used Olivio spread for the light margarine. I used a 10" cake pan and would recommend doubling the syrup.
I thought this recipe was good but not great. I'd make it again but I'd use double the margarine in the topping. It was rather dry. Maybe it was supposed to be that way, I don't know. But I was thinking it was going to be more like an apple crisp type topping so I was a little disappointed. I needed more bananas than called for, but the ones I used were a little on the small side. The taste of everything else was great and I would've rated it higher if it weren't for the topping being so dry. Thanks for a good recipe. I really would like to try it again, just with that modification.
This Banana Pie has a very good taste overall, everyone in my family enjoyed it. Very clean and fresh tasting. It would be great with Vanilla Ice Cream. The baking dish needs to be an 9" x 13" because I could barely fit it into a 2 Qt baking dish. The recipe makes a bunch so someone with smaller needs might be better off halfing the recipe. Try it you will like it. Easy to make also.
Made it twice already and it was gobbled down both times! It makes a lot and is very filling and healthy! I wouldn't change a thing with this recipe, it really comes out perfectly!
3.5 stars First, either double the butter/margarine or halve the amount of flour, wheat germ and oats. There is WAY too much topping. Second, the pie looks NOTHING like the picture. The syrup is on bottom. Clearly the picture shown has syrup or some bananas on top. Third, a normal or even deep pie dish is too small unless you halve the dry ingredients. If you use more butter/margarine and keep the dry ingredients the same, be sure to use a 9x13 type baking dish. Fourth, we used 10 bananas and followed the recipe exactly. It's too dry. We used a large 2 qt baking dish which still wasn't big enough. Solution? Add milk and treat is like a sweet banana porridge/oatmeal. It's got potential, but needs tweaking. Also recommend doubling the syrup amount.
