  • 1 mixing bowl
  • 4 mason jars


  • 2 cups CEREAL- Honey Bunches of Oats Banana Bunches with Almonds plus more for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 (3.4 oz) box French vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 (6.5 oz) can whipped cream or 1 cup homemade whipped cream
  • 1 fresh banana, sliced in thin medallions


  • In a food processor, add 2 cups of Honey Bunches of Oats Banana Bunches with Almonds. Pulse until cereal is ground into fine crumbs.
  • Add cereal crumbs to a small bowl along with the melted butter to form the pie crust. Stir until combined. The pie crust mixture will be slightly sticky.
  • Distribute the pie crust mixture evenly into 4- 8oz mason jars. With the back of a spoon or your fingers, press the crust firmly into the bottom of the jars. Set jars aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, prepare the pudding mixture. Add the contents of the pudding box and 1 3/4 cups milk. Whisk together until smooth. The pudding will thicken within a few minutes. Once it is slightly thickened, distribute it evenly into each jar.
  • Next, top the pudding in each jar with whipped cream.
  • Lastly, add fresh banana slices and sprinkle with as much Honey Bunches of Oats Banana Bunches with Almonds as your heart desires. Serve immediately!


If you would like to prepare the jars ahead of time, assemble the jars except for the whipped cream, banana slices, and cereal garnish. Place the pie jars (crust and pudding) in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 2 days before serving. When ready to serve, remove from fridge and add remaining ingredients.
