Mini desserts are one of the best things in my opinion, because sometimes you just don’t want to share! They’re also super cute, right? These mini banoffee pies are actually so fun to make, and the combination of flavours just hits all the right notes. You NEED to try them, okay? Okay.

The (HEALTHY!) Ingredients

  • Banana: Bananas are not only naturally sweet but also packed with essential vitamins and minerals. They provide a good dose of vitamin C, potassium, and dietary fibre. The bananas in this recipe serve as the natural sweetener, eliminating the need for added sugars.
  • Oats: Oats are a nutritional powerhouse. They are rich in fibre, which helps with digestion and keeps you feeling full. Oats also contain a variety of vitamins and minerals, including manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium.
  • Smooth Nut Butter: Nut butter adds a creamy and satisfying texture to the pie. It’s an excellent source of healthy fats and protein. The combination of fats and protein helps keep you feeling full and satisfied, making it a perfect ingredient for a healthy dessert. I use peanut butter, but almond butter, cashew butter, or anything along those lines will work well!
  • Vanilla Yoghurt: Yoghurt not only adds a delightful creaminess to these mini pies but also provides a dose of probiotics. Probiotics are beneficial for gut health, an essential aspect of overall well-being. Opt for a dairy-free yoghurt for a vegan version. My favourite is Greek Yoghurt or Skyr for extra protein and goodness!
  • Dark Chocolate: Dark chocolate is a healthier alternative to milk chocolate. It’s rich in antioxidants and can improve heart health. In moderation, dark chocolate can be a part of a balanced diet. To keep these mini banoffee pies refined sugar-free, make sure to use chocolate that is refined sugar-free like this one.

Ingredient Substitutions:

  • Bananas: These are banoffee pies, so I’m not sure why you’re here if you don’t have bananas. However, on the rare occasion that this is even a possibility – If you don’t have or prefer not to use bananas, you can try using unsweetened applesauce for a similar natural sweetness and moisture.
  • Oats: Rolled oats can be substituted with almond flour or coconut flour for a gluten-free option. For a low-carb alternative, you can use ground flaxseed or chia seeds. You may need to adjust the quantities to reach the right consistency. I use whole porridge oats, but instant oats also work.
  • Smooth Nut Butter: If you have nut allergies or prefer a different flavour, you can use sunflower seed butter, tahini, or soy nut butter.
  • Vanilla Yoghurt: Opt for dairy-free yoghurts like almond, coconut, or soy yoghurt if you’re following a vegan or dairy-free diet. If you don’t have vanilla yoghurt, you can add some vanilla extract to plain yoghurt.
  • Dark Chocolate: You can use any chocolate you wish or try other toppings like cacao nibs, shredded coconut, chopped nuts, or dried fruits for added flavour and texture.

How to Make Mini Banoffee Pies

I’ve added the step-by-step instructions below AND I’ve also got a video for you to follow along with.

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Begin by preparing your oven for baking. To do this, preheat it to 180°C (350°F or 160°C fan). Preheating the oven ensures that it’s at the right temperature when you’re ready to bake your pies.

Step 2: Prep the Bananas

Take two large bananas or 220g of bananas and slice 60g off and slice it into 6 coins, set them aside for now (we’ll get back to them later). Mash the remaining 160g.

Step 3: Make the Crusts

Now, add 110g of the mashed banana to the oats. This step is essential for creating a delectable and healthy pie crust. Mix it up until all the oats are coated with the banana and it’s a sticky mixture. Divide the mixture between 6 holes in a muffin tray (I like using a silicone tray like this one). Use your fingers or a shot glass to press the mixture into the muffin holes to form a mini crust shape. Bake them for 10 minutes.

Step 4: Make the Healthy Caramel

Take the remaining 50g of mashed banana and combine it with the smooth nut butter in a separate bowl. This combination tastes like a delicious caramel that works so well in this recipe!

Step 5: Assemble the Pies

After your crusts have baked to perfection, it’s time to assemble your mini pies. Divide the banana caramel mixture evenly among the baked crusts. To enhance the natural sweetness, top each mini pie with a banana coin. This assembly step ensures that each bite is a delightful blend of flavours and textures.

Step 6: Add the Yoghurt Topping

Now, take a moment to add a dollop of vanilla yoghurt on top of each mini pie. For a vegan version, choose dairy-free yoghurt.

Step 7: Grate the Dark Chocolate

To finish off your mini banoffee pies, grab your dark chocolate and grate some on top of each pie. AND THAT’S IT!

How to Store Banoffee Pie

Room Temperature: Mini pies are best eaten shortly after preparation, particularly if they contain dairy-based yoghurt. Be cautious when storing at room temperature; it’s advisable not to leave them out for more than 2 hours to prevent spoilage and bacterial growth.

Refrigeration: For longer-term storage (up to 3-4 days), cool the mini banoffee pies to room temperature after baking. Seal them in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator.

Freezing (Extended Storage): To store banoffee pies for an extended period (up to 2-3 months), allow them to cool to room temperature after baking. Individually wrap each pie in plastic or foil to prevent freezer burn. Place the wrapped pies in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag. Label with the date and freeze.

Thawing: When ready to enjoy a frozen pie, remove it from the freezer, thaw it in the refrigerator for a few hours, and serve. Mini pies can also be enjoyed cold or at room temperature for a chilled treat.

Whilst I do provide the US cup measurements for the recipe, I always recommend using a kitchen weighing scale and using the weighted measurements instead. This will result in a more accurate process and your cake will come out perfectly.
Banana Ripeness: Choose ripe bananas with brown speckles for the best natural sweetness and flavour.
Caramel Filling: If your nut butter and banana mixture isn’t as smooth as you’d like, you can gently heat it in the microwave for a few seconds or on the stovetop to make it easier to spread.
Muffin Tray: Using a silicone muffin tray can make it easier to remove the mini pies without damaging them.
Even Crusts: When pressing the crust mixture into the muffin holes, ensure it’s evenly distributed and firmly packed to create a stable base.
Toppings Variation: Get creative with toppings. Try different types of chocolate, chopped nuts, or a sprinkle of cinnamon for added flavour.
Dairy-Free Options: For a vegan version, use dairy-free yoghurt. Almond, coconut, or soy yoghurt are great options.
Make Ahead: You can prepare the crusts in advance and assemble the pies just before serving to maintain the crispness of the crust.
