Today’s snack is on the sweet side if you’re looking for something to settle a sugar craving.  This is less so a recipe and more of an assemblage- it really just involves putting a couple of simple things together.  Kids can do it too!

  • 1 medium banana, ripe but firm enough for nut butter spreading
  • 2 Tablespoons nut butter (peanut, almond, sunflower seed, etc.)
  • ¼ cup granola or puffed brown rice cereal

Peel banana and slice into ½” thick medallions.  Top each slice with nut butter.  Sprinkle granola or cereal on top.  Enjoy!

If you really want to make this a dessert you could also throw some chocolate chips on top, but you didn’t hear that from me!

Notice that this recipe conveniently contains all the elements of a satisfying snack that we discussed yesterday:
  • Protein source: nut butter, as well as a little in the banana
  • Fat source: nut butter
  • Fiber-rich carbohydrates: banana and cereal

I saw Melissa Cacha also has a banana-based recipe this week, definitely a dessert one!
