Peanut Butter & Banana Bites

I am not exaggerating when I say that my boys are always hungry.  Some days they completely eat me out of house and home.  I swear that they would just sit there and eat all day if I would let them – but I don’t.  So when I do feed them snacks, I look for ones that are not only going to fill their tummies, but are healthy as well.  Enter Peanut Butter & Banana Bites!  They fit both bills and the best part is that you only need two ingredients!  Plus you can whip these up in just a few minutes, so it’s a win-win in the snack category if you ask me.


• Banana, sliced

• Peanut Butter

1. Peel your banana and slice into round pieces.

2. Use a butter knife to spread peanut butter onto a piece of banana. Note: The banana will be slippery so it will take a second for the peanut butter to stick to the banana.

3. Place another slice of banana on top of the peanut butter creating a mini sandwich.

4. Serve and Enjoy!

These are so easy to make and make for a really healthy, kid-friendly snack.   My kids love them just as I did when I was a kid.

  1. These look easy enough to make and am so trying with my gang now. Thanks!!! 😉

  2. Mmmmmm peanut butter and banana is so good. I make this snack but I don’t do it as neatly as you do. I just grab a banana, put some peanut butter (almond butter ) in a bowl and dip away.

  3. I have honestly never tried this combo. It certainly looks good and I love how easy it would be for a snack. 🙂

  4. My husband would love these! He’s the non-stop snacker in our house, ha ha! He loves peanut butter and banana sandwiches, and these would eliminate the extra carbs and calories from the bread ;-).

    • I am a huge fan of the sandwiches too and since I have to watch my carbs, these are perfect! I also like to pop them in the freezer for an ice cream like treat.

  5. This is such a great idea for a quick snack. I’m not a big fan of banana or peanut butter but I bet they’re really filling.
