This is a repost from last November. BUT I’ve made an improvement to the recipe (bolded)…check it out!
Okay, I have to admit, this idea isn’t original. I got it from my friend Gretchen when she hosted a playdate a few years ago. But it’s so good, we’re still using it!
One of our favorite kid snacks is Banana Boats. They’re tasty, healthy and so easy! And did I mention kids (oh, okay…and every grown-up who’s ever tried them) love ’em?
Take a banana and cut it in half width-wise (is that a word?). Then halve each half again lengthwise so you have 4 pieces of banana, each with a flat side and a rounded side.
Microwave a tablespoon or so of peanut butter for about 30 seconds. Top the flat side of each banana with a layer of the melty peanut butter. (It sure beats wrestling with the room-temperature pb and the slimy cut side of the banana!)
Top that with granola (our favorite is Cascadian Farm). Serve.
I was planning to take pictures of my lovely creations, which I made for an after-school snack today, but they literally got snarfed down by Big Sis before I even got the camera out. Oops. (It happened again this morning, too! These things must be GOOD!)
I’ll post pics when I can. Until then, enjoy!
