These are quite possibly the easiest snack food ever to make. They really don’t even require a recipe, but my boys LOVE them, so I thought they were worth sharing. Banana wheels were born out of a desperate need to get my toddler to eat something other than graham crackers and goldfish (neither of which I’m opposed to, for the record, but–you know–variety is good occasionally) for a snack.
I’ve mentioned before (when I shared THIS fave snack recipe) that I like to make sure that our snacks have some form of protein so it keeps my little guys full longer, and peanut butter and bananas are kind of a match made in heaven.
Ever since I first made them, they’ve been one of our very favorite snacks. Easy, quick, and made with things we almost always have on hand. We make them for morning snack several times a week.
So, here’s your NON-recipe for what we call banana wheels:
- peanut butter
- Craisins or raisins
- Slice the banana into little rounds (or “wheels”). Mine are usually about 1/2 inch thick.
- Add a small dollop of peanut butter to the top of each banana round.
- Top each with a Craisin or a raisin.
And, you’re done! Healthy snack, happy children, and two minutes to yourself while they gobble it up happily. You’re welcome. 🙂
