We’re really going through our snacks over here. I feel like my pants are a little bit tighter each day, but I can’t really help myself. I have to eat. My kids seem to be always hungry so we’re just snackin’ like it’s our new side hustle. I sometimes get tired of preparing their snacks so I set things up for them to make their own. This banana sushi is one of our fave snacks to make. I ran out of our typical toppings, but this version using some of our pantry staples ended up being so so yummy and I thought I’d share here in case there is someone out there looking for tomorrow’s snacks.
We used peanut butter and a new kind of granola I picked up at the store a few weeks ago. If you’re worried about nut allergies, you can definitely use sun butter for the same effect. It’s all still so yummy!
Spread out the granola on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Peel a banana and gently coat it in peanut butter. (My kids prefer an EXCESS of pb here. lol.)
Serve with chopsticks if you’re fancy! Vita totally tried this and I commend her. Luckily, no one was around to judge our lack of chopstick skill. But then you know, I put it all up here for you to see. Oops.
- white chocolate x fruity pebbles
- white chocolate x crushed oreos
- milk chocolate x mini m&ms
- jam or jelly drizzle
- nutella x shredded coconut (my top choice!)
It doesn’t really get easier than this banana sushi. It looks messy, but you can add the peanut butter yourself. I wanted to keep the girls busy and this was the perfect activity to do just that.
