Peanut Butter & Banana Creme Brulee

I wanted to finish off peanut butter & banana week with something decadent, and what could be more decadent than creme brulee, all warm and creamy with the perfect crackly top?

The Ingredients:
1 ripe banana
1 1/2 c soy milk
1/3 c sugar
1/4 c smooth peanut butter
2 t tapioca starch
1/2 t vanilla
1/2 t agar agar powder
about 1/4 c sugar for topping
optional: 1-2 bananas for topping

The Process:
  1. In a blender, blend together all ingredients except toppings until very smooth.
  2. Pour into a saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour into shallow heat-proof dishes or ramekins.  Cover and refrigerate at least 20 minutes or up to 24 hours.
  4. If using banana topping, slice bananas thinly and arrange some on top of each dish.  Sprinkle with sugar.  Either place dishes under the broiler until the sugar is lightly browned, or fire with a kitchen torch.  Serve immediately.

Stay tuned for blueberry & lemon week next week!  It's probably my best batch of recipes yet.


  1. YUM! I want to make this creme brulee. Again peanut butter and banana combo I love it!

  2. That looks so delicious! I have to make this!

  3. This looks delicious and sounds easy enough to make. I will definitely have to try it!

  4. Thanks everyone, I hope you enjoy it! I think it's one of those recipes that is really simple to make but tastes like you slaved over it.

  5. Wow! Impressive! That first crack into creme brûlée is a wonderful pleasure. Plus, any food that involves torches & fire is a feat in my book! :)

  6. Very nice and creative. I love Creme Brulee but have not bee braze enough to try and make it myself.

  7. You've been doing a whole week of pb and banana? I have posts to catch up on because that is a delicious combo! This crème brulee looks perfect and I love that it's gf and easy enough to make with no soy!

  8. Holy moly, this looks fantastical! Creme brulee is one of those things I miss since going vegan.
