"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!" — Cacau

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.
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.
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.)
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!
This came out very good. I added coconut for some extra flavor. The only other change I made was to sprinkle the brown sugar on the bottom instead of making a syrup and it still tasted fine.
