“Jazz up the ordinary curvy yellow fruit and enjoy these no cook easy banana bites !”
Bananas are a staple at our house. It’s so versatile for recipes, smoothies, and even pancakes. It’s probably the easiest fruit to bring along to for a snack! I mean, come on, it’s wrapped in its own very convenient packaging.
On one busy morning, however, I had absolutely no time to cook anything. I quickly saw bananas on my counter and said to myself, “OK, that’s his breakfast.” I try to always serve him a complete meal with as many food groups as I can and had to think of a way to add protein. This is how this recipe came about. Problem is, he wanted 3 bananas, and it took him longer to eat each banana bite, than it would take me to cook a full breakfast spread. But that’s ok, he really enjoyed these. I paired it with some other fruit and some yogurt and called it a day.
P.S. Do you know how hard it was for him to take the picture below? He was so patient and so incredibly cute waiting for mommy to capture the photo. I gave him one banana bite, and he kept saying, “Again!” This is his new word for more. It makes me incredibly happy to cook for this little man. Well in this case, happy to prepare, since this requires no cooking at all!
P.S.S. You can buy almond meal at your local grocery store. I bought this one from Trader Joes, but it’s also available online here. If unavailable, you can always blend almonds in your blender (must be a powerful one.)
