Brown Sugar Banana No-Bake Cheesecake is a simple and delicious combination of vanilla wafers, bananas, and an easy no-bake brown sugar cheesecake filling!
As much as I adore traditional baked cheesecakes, I have quite a soft spot for the no-bake variety as well. Not only do you skip the long baking time, but you also get a smooth, creamy texture that is pretty tough to beat.
And I love how quickly you can get the filling mixed and chilling! Just a few ingredients and a little bit of mixer time, and you’re done. Then comes the tough part… waiting for it to chill long enough so you can dig into a slice!
This cheesecake starts with a simple cookie crust made with vanilla wafers. Feel free to substitute another cookie for the crust. Graham crackers, Pecan Sandies, or Nutter Butters would be a great choice for this pie.
Next comes a layer of sliced bananas. I use the best parts of one or two bananas to make a single layer of bananas in the bottom of the crust. If you prefer more banana flavor, you can certainly add another layer or even two.
For the smoothest texture, make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature before making the filling.
Then, there’s the filling. Well, let me just say that I would be most happy with a scoop of this stuff in a bowl for my dessert. It’s so, so good yet so simple. Just five ingredients! All of that brown sugar makes it irresistible to me. And the hint of cinnamon is the perfect complement to both the filling and the bananas.
While the filling of this cheesecake is not baked at all, I do prefer to bake cookie crusts like this briefly. In my experience, they hold up a bit better after a little bit of oven time. If you prefer a true no-bake experience, then you can assemble the crust and chill it for about 30 minutes before filling it.
With its amazing flavor and quick preparation, this cheesecake is a great go-to recipe when you need something quick and easy that will impress your family or guests. I know that it will make many more appearances on my table!

Fantastically delicious looking for the banana lovers in our family! Thanks!
I can not wait to make this! Thank you for the recipe! This looks like the best thing I have seen all month. YUMMY!
I need to get a house with a porch, so I can have girlfriends over for sweet tea, so I can serve this cheesecake with it.
You had me at brown sugar and cheesecake – such a perfect combo!
Made for the FF&F What’s on the Menu? Tag Game as an Easter dessert. To make a long story short, hubby’s Mom spends Easter w/us. In Iceland, that means 2 sweet treats including “Kaffi og Kaka” (Coffee & Cake) in mid-afternoon & then dinner later w/a 2nd dessert. I always bake something for “KogK”, then he & his Mom pig-out on ice cream after dinner. All that said, I made my own never-fails-me pie crust, blind-baked it, made your easy & quick-to-fix recipe & chilled it overnight. To dress it up, I arranged Cadbury eggs in clusters to create 8 portions. My intent was to make coconut nests for them, but my coconut was MIA. It was a HUGE hit! In fact, his Mom declined her much-loved ice cream & said she wanted “meira ostakaka” (more cheesecake). Thx for sharing this great recipe. … To see my pic, try this url … http://4foodfriendsandfun.yuku.com/sreply/64576/Whats-on-the-Menu

I think it would freeze okay. Be sure to wrap it very well and thaw in the refrigerator.
