I came across a nice little dessert consisting of sliced bananas sandwiching peanut butter. My kids would love it, but I have a youngin and he's gluten-free. Worried handing him raw bananas as he'll a mush them up, so I want to put a crust of sorts on it to contain, or at least minimize the mushing. Chocolate is one alternative but I'm leaning towards something a little healthier.

In my experience, no amount of crust will prevent mushing if mushing is what the youngin' wants to do... –  ElendilTheTall Jan 24 '14 at 9:07
Ha ha, so true, but I should make an attempt... I am thinking a graham cracker crust of sorts may go well, gotta find it gluten-free... –  David Lozzi Jan 24 '14 at 13:34

Pamela's at http://www.pamelasproducts.com/products/baking-mixes/ makes a great non-gluten crust. I even added more coconut flour to it and mixed it in the food processor for a sweet potato pie. It came out firm and tasty. Also baked it first then added the filling and baked it again. If you add more flour you might want to add a little more salt but I like mine bland. Hope this helps.
