Combine Milk, flour , 1/2 cup of granulated/caster sugar and 2 TBSP of Maple Syrup in a food processor. Wiz it up and throw the milky batter into a pot. Once in a pot set on lowish medium heat or low if you don't have time to sit there and stir every 20-30 seconds. Once bubbling start stirring more often for the next 2 minutes, then add all the chocolate and turn off the heat. Leave the pot on the same stove pot and leave to sit for a few minutes.
Throw all granola bars into a food processor or nutri bullet or blender.
Once dustified separate 1.5 cups granola and mix it with 1/4 cup butter in your chosen pie tray. Line the tray on the bottom. If its thick spread it to the sides evenly. This helps it keep together in one piece
Chop up your bananas in thin slices 5 mm ish. using half your bananas line your finished crust with bananas evenly.
Once the custard has set for a few minutes, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence to it unless your using vanilla white chocolate. If using vanilla white only add half a teaspoon. Now ladle the custard over the bananas and sprinkle with half the remaining granola. Repeat this process once more, starting with banana then custard then granola.
Whip up your thickened cream with 6 Tbsp of maple syrup 2 Tbsp of sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla essence.
Slather the Whipped cream over your pie to finish. Sprinkle with a tiny bit of dustified granola.
For a more interesting texture, try dustifying 80 percent of your granola and crushing the last 20 percent with a hammer. Use the crushed 20 percent to add some nice little crunchy chunks to your 2 thin layers of granola that go over the bananas.
Also for a more tailored flavor replace maple syrup with your favorite sweetener, and the white chocolate/biscuit with your biscuit/chocolate of choice. Simply replacing those 3 ingredients while following this recipe can ensure some new interesting variants of this classic recipe. Experiment and have fun with it! If anyone replaces the bananas altogether, let me know how it went. I might try make a version of this with dates one of these weeks.
