Cereal Killer Pie: Coconut Pie, Grape Nut crust & Caramelized Nanners

I was invited a cereal themed birthday party recently and felt that I should do something fun with breakfast cereal.  I had a feeling rice krispie treats would make an appearance regardless, so I thought of one of my favorite breakfast cereals, Grape Nuts, and the rest just followed suit.

Breakfast & dessert together at last.

I thought that Grape Nuts would make a nice pie crust, except that they are SO crunchy and are sort of intense to eat.  I put them in the food processor, hoping that my blade wouldn’t dull from the hard labor.  It took awhile, but it got to more of a graham crumb consistency (but still retained it’s crunch).  I mixed the crumbs with melted Earth Balance and pumpkin seed milk until I could squeeze it into a ball. I added some shredded, unsweetened coconut to the crust as well.  For the filling, I used the Lost Coconut Pie from Veganomicon and topped it with caramelized bananas.  If I made it again, I would use 1/2 the amount of coconut in the filling and use fried plantains on top.  Regardless of my perfectionism, it was decadent, creamy, and a hit at the party. I’d eat this for breakfast!

    What a creative idea! You’re right–Rice Krispies are too obvious a choice.

    Thanks Destiny! I’m really happy with how it came out. My runner-up idea was something with Kix and peanut butter.
