Two serving plates of Raw Banana Splits topped with peanut butter, coconut yogurt, raspberries, flaked coconut, and rawnola

This recipe is inspired by a snack we recently shared on Instagram that you were apparently very into. And because we’ve had it many times since, we figured it was due time to share the details.

Let’s make (healthier) banana splits!

This 7-ingredient, 5-minute recipe is raw (when you use raw nut butter), insanely versatile, and super delicious.

It all starts with ripe bananas scored down the middle to prepare for all the delicious toppings. We went with nut butter, Coconut YogurtRawnola, raspberries, hemp seeds, and coconut flakes!

You could also go for more savory toppings such as avocado or even sweet potato! Really, make use of whatever is in season and available to you.

  1. Kedi says

    This is perfect for when I need something in my stomach immediately! I make this all the time as breakfast, dessert or a snack. The banana and peanut butter go so well together!

  2. Diana Demco says

    I used to love this recipe and made it so often during university. It comes together in no time and you can sprinkle on top just about anything and it’s gonna be great.

  3. Kate says

    Delicious, healthy and easy. I also added ‘2-ingredient banana chocolate ice cream’ which really made it chocolatey and decadent.

    Thank you for all of your great recipes!

  4. Stephanie says

    I LOVE this!! It’s 11:30 pm here and I was so craving something peanut buttery and yummy but minimal prep cause I just got my daughter to sleep so couldn’t pull out the food processor for healthy PB fudge (will make tomorrow) .. so I split a banana and slathered on a generous amount of PB and topped with unsweetened desiccated coconut and dark chocolate chips!! Love how versatile it is & how easily adapted it can be to what you have on hand or what you feel like! Definitely hit the spot. Thanks for this awesome recipe

  5. Debbie Larsen says

    Oh this was divine! I used PBfit for the peanut butter to make it an even healthier treat and I loved loved LOVED the raw-nola on it. My whole family ate it and loved it and I just need to make aure there’s enough for everyone when I bring this out otherwise, like my husband always tells the kids, “we’ll have to wrestle for it it”

      Hi Holly! That was an error that has been corrected as there is no maple syrup. Hope this helps!

  6. Cassie Thuvan Tran says

    Yum yum yum! Banana splits are so delicious and perfect for any time of the day. I like adding a chocolate vegan protein powder “glaze” (chocolate plant-based protein powder + almond milk or water) on top for some more substance and flavor. But of course, you gotta have ALL the fruits, nuts, seeds, nut butters, coconut yogurt, and granola! And who can forget coconut and cinnamon?! You’ve pretty much nailed the best combos right on the head!

  7. Taylor Kai says

    what a great idea!! I’ve been craving a banana split lately, but trying my best to be healthier. this will do the trick! I think I might add some blended frozen fruit!

  8. Les @ The Balanced Berry says

    I’ve had something similar as a breakfast staple for years, but next time I NEED to add the nut butter addition. That takes it to a whole new level!

  9. Nikki says

    Hate to be a stickler cause I love your recipes but the canned coconut milk that goes into the yoghurt is not raw … though I wish it were!

  10. loh says

    Quite loving this, bet your whiskey caramel would work well here too (though making it less healthy).

    Can you please tell me what the music is you used in the video? Neither I nor Shazam recognise it and I’d really like to know.
