This rhubarb banana pie is a refreshing change from the classic strawberry rhubarb pie.

Bananas, spices, and a little orange juice give this rhubarb pie fabulous flavor. The extra sweetness and texture the bananas give this pie will surprise your family and friends.

What You'll Need

  • 2 sheets pie pastry (commercial premade, or one homemade batch for a 2-crust pie)
  • 3 cups rhubarb (sliced fresh, about 1 pound)
  • 3 medium bananas (ripe, peeled and sliced)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter (cut into small pieces)

How to Make It

  • Gather the ingredients.
  • Prepare pastry for a 2-crust pie. Shape the pastry into two flattened disks and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes. Alternatively, use commercial refrigerated prepared pastry sheets.
  • Heat the oven to 450 F.
  • Take half of the pastry out of the refrigerator and roll it out to a 12-inch circle. Line a 9-inch pie plate with the pastry. 
  • In a large bowl, combine rhubarb, bananas, sugar, orange juice, flour, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Spoon mixture into the pastry-lined pie plate and dot with butter.
  • Roll out the remaining pastry into an 11-inch circle for​ the top crust. Place over the fruit filling, seal, and flute the edge all around.
  • Bake pie in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 350 F and bake 30 minutes longer, or until crust is nicely browned. If the edge appears to be over-browning use a pie shield or homemade foil pie ring to protect the edge.
  • Let the pie cool on a rack completely before serving.

Tip: Consider using the banana rhubarb filling in your favorite cobbler recipe or fruit crisp.
