Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Mini Pies

These little pies are a mini version of a pie I posted on my blog before Christmas. I needed to use my bananas in a recipe before they turned completely brown so I made some more crust and used the banana for the filling.

Crust: 1 cup of oats, 8 soft, pitted Medjool dates and 2 tbsp of coconut oil in the food processor on high. Keep processing the mixture until it becomes sticky.
Filling: 3 ripe bananas, 10 tbsp of peanut butter, 4 tbsp of cacao powder in the blender. The mixture will be gooey.

Line a cupcake pan with wax paper and push a scoop of crust into the wax paper. Scoop the filling on top of the crust so that you're making mini pies. Use up all the filling and crust.
I took the pies out of the cupcake pan and put in airtight containers to store in the fridge.
I made 9 mini pies.

To cut down on fat and calories, delete the peanut butter.  The dates and bananas give this dessert enough sweetness.  Or cut down on the amount of peanut butter you use.  You can also use one avocado in place of peanut butter or use another nut butter such as almond butter.


  1. Hmmm what happened to my comment??? I said: I have to make these soon. I wondered if you've tried using pine nuts in the crust. I hear they make the crust crunchier.

  2. I just saw this now! Ohh never thought of using pine nuts...I'll have to try that :) Thanks for the idea!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
