Must Read

My 2.5-year-old son is going through a phase of loving one food one day and hating it the next. This seems to be the case, for hotdogs, waffles, chicken nuggets, and peanut butter toast. Now, I know good and well that he likes these foods but some days he refuses to eat them. It can be endlessly frustrating to constantly feel like I am begging my son to eat real food. But, there is something that I can almost always count on. Bananas! My son loves fruit but especially bananas. He just needs the peel removed and he is good to go! So, I started thinking to myself “are there other ways to use bananas to switch up his favorite food?” and here is what I found!

Banana Bites

Going bananas

I have tried to make recipes similar to this in the past and they haven’t gone over so well with my son or my husband. But, I am willing to give them another try with this recipe!

  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter, all-natural
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup flour, whole wheat
  • 1 1/3 cup oats, dry
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  1. Mix the first five ingredients very well.
  2. Then add whole wheat flour, oats, and baking soda.
  3. Blend all ingredients into the dry. 
  4. Drop by teaspoon full onto cookie sheet.
  5. Flatten and shape with the back of a spoon. 
  6. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes.

  1. Mash banana until smooth.
  2. Whisk in egg until well combined.
  3. Add a pinch of cinnamon and stir.
  4. Cut pieces of bread into three even pieces.
  5. Dip into the banana egg mixture to coat
  6. Fry in olive oil on medium heat until browned.
  7. Flip and brown the other side.

Chocolate peanut butter banana sushi


I love how easy this recipe is! As a busy mom, sometimes you need something quick and easy that won’t go to waste. I have a feeling this recipe is just that!

  • 4 bananas still relatively firm
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup crisp rice cereal
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts
  1. In a shallow dish, heat up peanut butter for 30 seconds to become easier to spread.
  2. In another shallow dish combine cereal, chocolate chips, and nuts.
  3. Dip each banana into the peanut and coat fully, using a spoon if necessary to spread peanut butter over the banana.
  4. Coat the banana with the cereal mixture.
  5. Transfer the banana to a plate and allow it to set up in the fridge for 20 minutes or freezer for 5 minutes before slicing into 1 to 2-inch slices and serving.

  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla
