Totally delicious, vegan peanut butter banana cups that are much-loved by kids and adults! Easy to make with just a few simple, wholesome ingredients.



  1. Mix the coconut oil, cocoa powder and maple syrup together in a bowl.
  2. Add about 1 1/2 tsp of the chocolate mixture into 12 muffin liners and place in the freezer to harden.
  3. Mash the banana in a bowl until completely smooth.
  4. Add in the peanut butter and salt, if using, and mix well.
  5. Pull the muffin liners out of the freezer and divide the peanut butter banana mixture by spoonfuls into each cup. Use your fingers or a spoon to press it down so it’s somewhat flat.
  6. Cover each muffin cup with the remaining chocolate mixture. Sprinkle each cup with a little sea salt, if desired. Place back in the freezer for at least 20 minutes or until completely hardened. 
  7. Store them in the freezer.
  8. Once they’re hardened, they’re ready to enjoy!


You can use 3/4 cup melted dairy-free chocolate chips or finely chopped dark chocolate instead of making the chocolate from cocoa powder, maple syrup and coconut oil.

For treats like these, I find silicone baking cups work the best. They’re inexpensive, non-stick, last forever and work great for making desserts like this. Grab a set here.

These can be made nut-free by using sunflower seed butter. 

The peanut butter banana filling isn’t super sweet. If you want it a little sweeter, mix in 2 tsp coconut sugar.
