Super yummy and naturally vegan and gluten-free (depending on the granola you choose), these banana bites are definitely healthy no-bake snacks kids love.
Easy Banana Snack Recipe
Let me paint the picture for you. I had pulled one load of laundry out of the dryer, moved one from the washer to the dryer, and put yet another load in the washer. I had the counter covered with little containers and dirty knives and packages of grapes and carrots and cheese and bread and crackers and cucumbers and bags of raisins and tubs of yogurt and bottles of honey and everything else needed to prep two kids’ lunches and breakfast for the next three days. Steak was thawing and the zucchini was recently sliced for that night’s dinner, I moved the chicken from the freezer to the fridge to thaw for tomorrow’s dinner. Dirty dishes were multiplying next to the sink. The phone was ringing because mom was calling.
And what do I hear from down in the basement?
“Moooommmmmmm, the batteries on my Wii controller died! It’s not working anymore. Mom. Mommy! Mommmmmmyyyyy!”
Five minutes later he got the hint. He walked his seven-year-old butt upstairs, and politely asked for me to get him some batteries for the controller. And I did.
Well, clearly the hint was not taken by the five-year-old. What did I hear ten minutes later bellowing over the music from Super Mario Brothers?
“Mommmmmmyyyy, we’re hungry! Can you bring us a snack?”
Yeah, that would be a hard NO.
Maybe if he had come upstairs and asked nicely I would have made these…
Peanut Butter Banana Snacks are mom-approved kid favorite!
The older kiddo begs me to make him these banana bites, and yours will too. Peanut butter and banana is always a favorite combination in everything from this Skinny Peanut Butter Chip Smoothie or these Flourless Funky Monkey Oatmeal Muffins, and even into more indulgent treats like the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Ice Cream he requested for his birthday one year. So it was only natural I use this favorite combo for a super quick and easy snack recipe. I love that they are packed with healthy ingredients, the kids love that they taste yummy, with the soft and sweet banana, salty peanut butter, and crunch from their favorite granola.
All I do is slice a banana into about 1-inch pieces, spread some peanut butter on top of each piece, and dunk it in granola.
Heck, you might even find yourself snacking on these Easy Peanut Butter Banana Snacks too!
