This pie-in-a-bite treat delivers the creamy, dreamy indulgence of a banana cream pie in a super simple format.

The filling is made by mixing a soft, mashed banana with protein-packed vanilla yogurt. Then layering a spoonful of the blend on a flattened, pitted date for chewy sweetness. Each mini “pie” is topped with a fresh banana slice and a sprinkle of crushed graham cracker, delivering a celebration of flavors—perfect for a delicious quick snack or a satisfying dessert.

While these delectable gems are best served fresh, they will last in the fridge (in a sealed container) for a couple of days!

Banana Cream Pie Dates

This pie-in-a-bite treat delivers the creamy, dreamy indulgence of a banana cream pie in a super simple format.
Servings: 10 dates
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients
 

  • 10 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 single serve vanilla Greek yogurt, ¾ cup*
  • 1 square graham cracker, crushed

Instructions
 

  • Prepare filling. Peel the banana, cut off about a quarter of the banana from its end, and slice into 10 thin circles. Set these slices aside for later. Mash the remaining larger banana piece in a small mixing bowl. (If the banana is too hard to fully mash, microwave for 20 to 30 seconds to soften it up.) Mix in the yogurt and vanilla extract. Cover and chill in refrigerator while you prepare the dates.
  • Prepare the dates. Split the pitted dates in half, and smash each into a flattened disc by pressing down with your fingers and palms, while keeping the bottom of the two halves intact. Place them on a tray or baking sheet lined with parchment paper, with the insides facing up. (See picture)
  • Build your date pies. Add a tablespoon of filling to the center of each flattened date. Place a banana slice of top and sprinkle with crushed graham cracker.

Notes

* I like to use brands sweetened with stevia or monkfruit, such as Oikos Triple Zero, Oikos Pro, Chobani Zero Sugar, or Two Good. 
** You will have ~ ¼ cup filling leftover to enjoy on its own (it’s so yummy) or dollop on extra dates with crushed graham crackers while omitting the sliced banana (since you’ll have no more slices left)
Feel free to line your plate, tray, or baking sheet with parchment to ensure the dates don’t stick while you’re flattening them out.
Serve immediately for the best experience. But you can also stash them in a sealed container in the fridge for up to two days. They’ll hold their shape and still taste delicious!
