I am positive that these banoffee pie cups are going to become your new favourite treat! It’s such a delicious snack or dessert and what makes it even more incredible is how quick and easy it is to make!

I’m obsessed with finding new, unique ways to use protein powder in my recipes – like this Single-Serve Cinnamon Roll! Not only do you get a delicious treat, but you also get a good amount of protein which is very important if you’re at least somewhat active! (I discuss the importance of pre- and post-workout nutrition later in the post). Adding protein powder to desserts makes them feel “healthier” and it also makes them even more delicious!

Banoffee Pie is one of the best desserts ever invented in my opinion, what’s not to like about banana, toffee and cream! Of course, me being me, I just had to find a way to make it a little bit more nourishing and also easier to make!

What is Banoffee Pie?

“Banoffee pie is a British dessert pie made from bananas, cream and a thick caramel sauce, combined either on a buttery biscuit base or one made from crumbled biscuits and butter.”

Wikipedia

As we can see from this description from Wikipedia – Banoffee Pie is not the most nutrient-dense treat albeit delicious.

Whilst it is absolutely acceptable to indulge in your favourite treats, I love showing you that you can make your favourite desserts, but HEALTHIER! Yay!

These Banoffee Pie Cups still taste very much like banoffee pie, but without having an overload of sugar and fat! Also – it’s very easy to make these banoffee desserts vegan simply by using dairy-free alternatives. Biscoff and Speculoos biscuits are already vegan which is incredible for all the vegans out there!

pre- and post-workout nutrition

Now, I need to disclaim that I am not a dietician or a nutritionist. I do have some basic knowledge of nutrition as I am in the process of becoming a personal trainer.

A very important point that I’ve learnt over my years of learning about health and fitness is that pre-workout and post-workout nutrition is very important! Almost as important as the workout itself. It’s very important to fuel your body before a workout and then refuel afterwards. A pre-workout snack or meal gives you the energy to improve your performance during the workout and a post-workout snack or meal helps to refill your glycogen stores, making it easier for your body to recover.

Personally, I tend to have a snack before my workouts and then a larger meal afterwards. I’ve gone through phases of “fasted workouts” and what I quickly learned is that I felt very weak and was unable to perform to my full potential.

pre-workout

Carbs are very important (and obviously delicious, right?) as they are literally the source of fuel for our bodies. I love making sure there is some sort of carbohydrate in my pre-workout snack, whether that be a grain of some sort like oats or cereal or even a piece of fruit like a banana. These banoffee pie cups have lots of carbs from the speculoos biscuits, Biscoff spread as well as the banana!

A bit of protein is also a very good addition to your snack, as protein helps to repair our muscles. You will get protein from the yoghurt as well as the protein powder in the “cream” element of the banoffee puddings.

post-workout

For post-workout nutrition, this is pretty much the same as the pre-workout section above. The good thing about these banoffee pie cups is that it makes two servings – so you can have one before your workout and then you can look forward to having the second one afterwards!

Ingredients

You only need five ingredients to make these banoffee pie cups!

Ingredients needed to make biscoff banoffee pie cups.

Speculoos Biscuits – These biscuits have become VERY popular over the past few years! If you’ve never tried them or even heard of them, I urge you to find some ASAP. It’s a spiced cookie originating in Belgium and they’re absolutely delicious. They’re also suitable for vegans!

Biscoff Spread – This is cookie butter made from speculoos biscuits! It has a caramel-like flavour making it perfect for a banoffee pie.

Banana – You can’t have banoffee pie without bananas. Otherwise, it would just be “offee pie”. Make sure to use a nice ripe banana.

Yoghurt – We’re using this to replace the cream element found in a traditional banoffee pie. You can use Greek Yoghurt or vegan yoghurt – I like to use soy yoghurt as it’s higher in protein than almond or oat.

Vanilla Protein Powder – Make sure to use a protein powder that tastes good! You can use a plant-based protein powder or whey protein. You can omit the protein powder if you prefer.

Step-by-step instructions

This is going to be a very short section, as there really isn’t very much you need to do to make these banoffee puddings. You can also find a recipe video in the recipe card below.

Step 1. Crush your biscuits. I place mine into a freezer bag and crush them by hitting them with a rolling pin (it’s a very good stress-reliever!). You could also use a blender or pestle and mortar.

Step 2. Melt your Biscoff spread. Place it into a small bowl and heat it in the microwave for around 30 seconds.

Step 3. Slice a banana.

Step 4. Make your protein yoghurt by combining yoghurt and protein powder. Use a fork or whisk to mix until it’s smooth. You may have to adjust the quantities of the ingredients to get to your desired consistency. If your protein powder has a slightly bitter taste, add a pinch of salt to balance the flavour.

Step 5. Layer your ingredients into jars or ramekins, almost like a trifle (but much, MUCH better).

That’s it!

Tips

  • You can meal prep more than one batch of these banoffee pie cups, but I recommend squeezing some lemon juice onto the banana to prevent them from going brown.

  • You can make these in old sauce or nut butter jars making them perfect to take on the go!

Serving and Storing Suggestions

Keep these in jars with a lid in the refrigerator. They are best consumed within two days. If you’re not eating these immediately, squeeze some lemon juice onto the sliced banana to prevent them from turning brown.

If you’re taking these on the go, I recommend eating them within 4 hours of being out of the fridge.

You can also freeze these, they’re actually very delicious half frozen!
