Banana Boats

By on July 10, 2017

Banana boats for breakfast and you’ll earn big smiles even early in the morning. 

Ingredients
2 tsp crispy rice cereal 
2 tsp almond butter
1/4 tsp honey or maple syrup 
(for  plant-based)
1  banana
1 heaping tsp dark raisins (optional)

Directions
In a small bowl, mix together the cereal, almond butter, and honey.

Peel the banana, then slice lengthwise, but don’t slice right down to the bottom. You don’t want two separate halves.

Using a small spoon, fill the inside of the banana with the almond butter mixture.

Place a line of raisins (if using) down the length of the banana, on top of the almond butter mixture.

Cut in half to serve and eat by hand.
