No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie Recipe

Table of Contents


  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (low-fat)
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans, optional)
  • Cooking spray or parchment paper for greasing


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a loaf pan with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, applesauce, Greek yogurt, honey (or maple syrup), eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon (if using).
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  5. If you like, fold in the chopped nuts to add some crunch and extra flavor to your banana bread batter.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Allow the banana bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Once cooled, slice and enjoy your low-fat banana bread guilt-free!
