Banana Cookie Cream Pies (Gluten Free & Keto)
This is not the usual cookie chip recipe, this is just a major combo that you just REALLY need in your life! How does it sound a cookie chip base filled with a creamy banana mix topped with chocolate pieces... and sprinkles!
Also, it's important to mention that these cookie cups are low carb, gluten free and freaking delicious! This recipe is perfect as a snack or dessert, contains plenty of protein and without all the sugar since we are using a keto friendly cookie mix!
About these Banana Cookie Cream Pies:
I kept it simple and very convenient. I used a keto friendly cookie dough mix for the base and followed the instructions from the container, the one that I used for this recipe was from Good Phats, that has really good ingredients and it's only has 2 net carbs per serving.
The creamy filling is also super simple: banana + greek yogurt + vanilla protein powder + cinnamon and done! It's thick, creamy and loaded with protein!
I also added some plant based protein in vanilla flavor it add some volume, flavor and nutrient density, in this recipe it didn't blend completely with the rest of the ingredients so there were some parts that really reminded me of the cookies!
The one the I typically use is from Nuzest, made with simple ingredients plus it's also low carb. You can use the discount code PURELYHL for discount!
The combination of the banana and vanilla protein powder is just a little extra touch that makes a difference on the texture too! Since it's a pea protein base it tends to absorb a little bit more of liquid making the mixture denser and thicker. I love incorporating it with greek yogurt for that season.
The perfect afternoon snack or dessert no matter the season! I'm a firm believer that banana pies and cookies are a whole year long type of recipe but with these warmer weathers pies have been on rotation lately... creamy pies just like this one, it's just bananas!
Overall, these are the ingredients needed for this Banana Cookie Cream Pies:
Nuzest Plant-Based Protein - Vanilla
You can see that the ingredients are pretty basic, don't forget to use the ingredients used for the chocolate chip cookie dough mux you decide to you, in this case I used some MCT in replacement of butter and one egg.
For the chocolate as a topping I decided to go with these ones from Evolved chocolate, one of my favorite chocolate brands because of their quality, ingredients and amazing variety of flavors. I used their keto brownie batter that it's just a dream.
To keep everything low carb I used my favorite sweetener that replace sugar 1:1, this is the granulated monk fruit from Lakanto, this is a great keto friendly and diabetic option for all my sweet pies out there.
I added a little bit to the greek yogurt mix, but you can leave it like that depending on the ripeness of the banana you are using.
You can use discount code: PURELYHL for discount on Lakanto's products.

And this is also a gut friendly option because of the fiber, the probiotics in the greek yogurt and being gluten free! These are also great for meal preps since you can keep them in the freezer and the whole recipe makes 18 cookie cups!
