Delicious Daniel Fast Snack or Dessert

frozen banana bars

I try to minimize added sugars, even when I’m not on a Daniel Fast. If I get a craving for something sweet, I like to whip up a quick batch of these Frozen Banana Bars. It doesn’t get much easier than this recipe. Only three ingredients. No baking involved. Minimal clean up.

Trust me. This one’s a keeper!

Frozen Banana Bars

2 medium bananas, peeled, sliced (about 2 cups)
1 cup roughly chopped dates
1 cup roughly chopped raw cashews

Place bananas, dates, and cashews in a food processor or blender. Process about 30 seconds or until smooth.Transfer to an 8 x 8-inch baking dish. Place in freezer 3-4 hours or until firm. To serve, cut into 2 x 2 1/2 –inch bars and serve. Store in freezer.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 bar)

  1. aww yummy, you did it again, Kristen!

    perfect treat after coming inside from the heat :)

  2. Do you think walnuts or pecans would work in place of the cashews? I will be trying these.

  3. Is there a substitute for dates? I have an allergy to them. Also for the date sugar? Love your recipes BTW. Thanks!

    • Hi, Penny! Yes, you can use dried plums (prunes) instead. They’re not as sweet, but will serve the same purpose as the dates in this recipe. I hope you like it!

  4. Your recipes are awesome ! The acorn squash dessert is so delicious! Thank you for taking your time to share :)

  5. Kristen- I made these today as I’m on day 21 of the fast & definitely missing my sweets!! (I used to have chocolate every day.) I just had them & was blown away by how good they are!!! I even took out my all natural unsweetened peanut butter & added a little to one as sort of an “icing”… But even without that they are delish & I feel like I can definitely go another week like this!! I’ll be honest that I’m doing this mostly to lose weight (I’m down 9.5 lb today!) but have seen the favor of the Lord through this as well. Your website has been a huge help!! Thank you!! =)

    • Hi! I’m glad you’re going to do the Daniel Fast! Unfortunately, no added sugar is allowed on the fast. That includes organic all-natural raw sugar. Thanks for your question!

  8. Can you use frozen bananas? This is my third Daniel fast with you. Thank you, I truly look forward it every year🙏🙏

    • I think frozen would work just fine, and it might cut down on the time you have to wait to eat them! Thanks for participating in the fast again this year, Charlene. May God bless you abundantly as you seek Him!

    Hi Kristen is it possible to add vanilla extract to this recipe ? Thanks

  10. I’m doing a 21-day fast and using the Daniel Plan for this. I have taken the study and have the textbook, cookbook and journal. I’m having a problem determining which recipes in the textbook are strictly for fasting since the fast should be water, vegetable and fruit — no dairy, no meat, no gluten, no sugar. Would you please help?
    Also is this recipe in the fast timeframe?

    • Hi, Jo! There is a difference in the Daniel Fast and the Daniel Plan. The Daniel Fast is meant to be a short-term, 21-day period of focused prayer while participating in a partial fast. It will be difficult to try to “fit” the Daniel Plan into the Daniel Fast. My suggestion is to do the 21-day Daniel Fast and then transition to the longer-term Daniel Plan.
